The Withy Pool Rig

Post by Stotty on Tue Feb 09, 2010 3:59 pm

The Withy Pool Rig was the invention of Steve Renyard

http://www.richworth.com/consultants/485384018/steve-renyard/

who was one of the most successful anglers to ever fish Withy Pool in Bedforedshire. Its a great rig developed to nail the crafty carp of Withy Pool, it looks very odd and some say there's no way it will work but I assure you it does,


There are 2 basic ways to make a withy pool rig, the first one uses a rig ring that can slide along the shank of the hook (the best way). The second uses a hair rig that is attached to the shank using a small piece of silicon tubing. Withy Pool Rig is by far one of the best pop-up rig around for presentation and hooking. Unlike other rigs this will hook the carp no matter what angle it comes from.


The Withy Pool Rig, utilising a free-running rig ring on the hook with hair attached, a float stop to prevent it sliding too far round the hook bend, curved shrink tube and a strategically placed split shot to counterbalance the pop-up bait

i saw it ona dvd, i cant remember the angler but he was dutch i think and very well known for his success at catching big big carp and although my first impression of that rig was how crude it looked, he said it is now the only rig he uses and has accounted for most of his big captures

my cousin used to fish loads of lakes in essex area and i beleive it was 2007 or 2008 he was chosen to represent england in canada for carp fishing. He for some reason turnt this offer down but he was sponsered by a big company but cant remember which one, he had a few fish out of walthamstow resevior from what i can remember but he would have been big over here if he had just gone to canada representing england, anyways he left to move out to australia with his bird then she saw her ex out there so got back with him and hes still out there and found a new one so i said do you mind if i raid your shed and take a few bits just to help me start of and that, this was like 2 or 3 years ago aswell and he said yes of course take it, going to be no use to me so i took most of it leaving old manky pellet and boilie but i was looking through one of his boxes found loads of leadcore, loads of hoks, weights and swivels so took them and then found this rig, im thinking what the hell is this all about but never known what its all about still scratch
