Im now a rather happy bunny. Ive finally manage to do the hair rig. I had to substitute a boilie for a fox poly ball,but none the less I now can "tie" a hair. I had to resort to the drawings on here tho:http://www.anglersnet.co.uk/Rig-Section/Carp-Rigs/tie_hair_rig_knotless_knot.html
But from closely looking at Stotty's diagrams I see they're both the same.
Is there anything I can substitute the hair stop with?
Will be off great use sunday at Grafton.
Cheers.

anything that'll do the job nixon ...... it's just there to stop the loop on the hair pulling back through the bait . I've been using the plastic price tags from our lass's " bargain "purchases ( clothes and shoes ) , on the bank I've used a bit of straw or a short piece of bramble stem

Thats the answer I was hoping to get, so no need to splash out on fancy bits of plastic.

If you cut the shank of an old eyed hook and tie that to the hair it can be pushed into the boilie or soft pellet and keep it in place or you can tie bait bands to the hair and just pull them through so that just a little bit is showing. With the bait band being rubber it expands again when it's pulled through and doesn't need a stop! Wink Another trick is to pull some bristles out of a stainless steel wire brush and tie one of them to your hair. This you push into the boilie just like the old hook shank!

Hope that helps!

Some great ideas floating about here, the price some shops are charging for pre-made rigs is ridiculous.
I bought a pack of hooks for 2.50, and already had the braid and swivels to do the rigs. and with a little help from some people's diagrams on here, Bish bash bosh, Ive saved a few bob.
And, now I can go and try for some carp,or other species. Diversification as Badger told me. Wink

Simple but bloody effective little rig...

Stotty the film star... affraid

People will take of the non piercing of pop ups but if the bait is only going to be out there for a short duration or the main ingredient is cork then it will be perfectly fine presented as above... and if presented with a small bag of pellets can be lethal...

Respect Stotty a great piece of work again

I do it th same as Stotty but I have seen people flossing the bait on, is that jsut to keep the bait popped up for longer because the water does not get into the centre of the popup scratch

primarily yes...

the piercing of the "outer skin" on most of today's standard pop ups will ingress water and the deeper the more so...

Cork based POP UPS are not as bad...

so the floss is the way around it

a little fiddly at first but like anything gets easier with practice...
