Post by naquant on Thu Aug 05, 2010 10:45 am

what is this, i have seen it on a few sites now and was thinking is it where the rig kills the carp and then you have an easy way of landing the carp or is it leadcor with fixed lead and stuff where if it breaks and using a big leads with stay with the fish?? lol

Death rig is one that the Fish cannot get rid of if your line snaps

Fixed rig is the main one

As said but you should be using a safe rig this day and age (which most fisheries demand )
Essentially - if your mainline snaps it is probably ok for a fish to escape with the hook and a lenght of line attached to it; it is believed the fish will come to no harm until it eventually ejects the hook, or it rusts. But if a weight is attached to that same hooklength, it will drag and get tangled around obstacles - thus tethering the fish and causing its death.
