The Big Rig
The Big Rig is the brainchild of northern specialist, Myles Gibson. It's a pop-up rig that has been designed with the very biggest specimens in mind. You'll notice that the Mouth Trap section extends the shank of the Choddy hook, making what is, in effect, a very big hook - hence the name. The angle at which the Mouth Trap loop is kicked in makes this a very effective 'flip-and-turn' hooker, spinning the hook into prime position when mouthed by a feeding fish. Myles has used it to bank big carp from his native Cheshire, and down south too. It's one of the most effective pop-up rigs on the scene.
