Designed by one of the best anglers on the circuit, Kenny Dorsett, the KD rig is ultra effective. Most of the guys at Korda incorporate this presentation into their fishing due to the magnificent hook holds that it creates; whether it’s as the shot-on-the hair, snowman, or muzza rig.
The hook is whipped on at such an aggressive angle that the carp find it practically impossible to eject when sucked in. Due to the way that the hair protrudes out the back of the hook’s eye, you’re causing the hook point to become heavier, allowing it to drop quicker into the bottom lip unlike many rigs out there.
To ensure that the presentation is at its best, you must use it in conjunction with a slow-sinking hook bait. This can either be a purpose-made, neutrally-balanced hook bait or a pop-up anchored by placing a split shot on the hair. Both are just as good. Many anglers here at Korda also place cork inside a bottom bait to create what is known as the ‘muzza’.
Through experience and results, the KD rig is best used with a curved hook pattern. As a result, go get some Kurv’s and go catch some carp!
Who wouldn’t want to fish like Danny Fairbrass? Let’s face it; the head of Korda catches more than his fair share of fish of all sizes, home and abroad. Well, as of right now, you can get one step closer, by using the DF ready tied rig range, which are available from all Korda stockists. These rigs have been tied to the exacting standards that Danny insists on from tried and tested components. The hair length, loop size and amount of coating stripped back are exactly as DF himself would use, allowing you to take a giant leap towards carping success!
So, what exactly is the DF rig? Well, it’s the rig that Danny has refined over the past decade, tweaking it and substituting new components as better technology has become available. It’s a versatile rig that can be used for straight boilie fishing or with plastic corn over the top of spodded particles. It’s a great hooker that lends itself perfectly to use with critically balanced presentations, standard bottom baits or pop-ups alike (with the addition of a split shot, Sinker or Dark Matter putty of course). It features all-time classic hook, the formidable Korda Wide Gape, with its secure beak and robust forging, coupled to the best coated braid out there, N-Trap Soft. Of course, the shrink tube is our finest Safe Zone stuff, and the rig rings are Korda through and through.
Buy a few of these rigs and it’ll be as if you had Danny with you on the bank, tying your rigs for you!! There can be no finer recommendation than that, can there?
The standard DF rigs are available in barbed and barbless versions, in sizes 10,8 and 6, and come in packaging that keeps them nice and straight and protects those all-important hook points, keeping them needle sharp! There’s also an X-Strong DF Rig, which is also available in barbed and barbless and in sizes 4, 6 and 8.
Chod, Long And Short
Our new ready-tied chod rigs really are perfection in a packet! Not only are they super-convenient, they’re also flawlessly tied. In fact, we’re not sure that any of our experienced chod-rig anglers, Danny Fairbrass included, could tie a neater version! Each rig has been tied to exacting standards, using the knots and techniques that Danny uses for his own rigs. That means that each ready-tied rig has been constructed using Dan’s special whipping knot, which gives unrivaled neatness and allows the knot to sit perfectly on the shank.
What’s more, rather than simply releasing one version, we’ve taken into consideration the fact that some anglers prefer short choddies, whereas others like a longer version, and released both types. So, if you like your choddies short like Darrell Peck’s naked chod rig or, you prefer them longer, like Adam Penning’s traditional leadcore rig, then you’ll find a rig to suit.
The rigs are tied with Mouth Trap, which instantly places them above all other ready-tied chods, simply because it’s the most workable material ever! The Mouth Trap is tied to the ever-reliable Choddy hook, which practically guarantees a secure hook hold.
We will be releasing both barbed and barbless versions, which come supplied in packs of three for £4.99.
