Nash In-Line Insert Lead Pads
About this deal
Now we have the chod set up, again still presented on a helicopter rig but fished slightly different, this rig has been designed for fishing over choddy and weedy bottoms, although you may still get bites on gravel spots using it, there are definitely better options for fishing over clean lakebeds. The only difference between this and a traditional helicopter set up in the incorporation of an extra bead, this will be place above the helicopter sleeve so the swivel will sit between to two beads, these can be moved accordingly to suit the debris you may be fishing over, you can also have them well spaced apart for ‘running chods’ this way the rig will slide up your leader/line and nestle down onto the height of the weed perfectly. It is advised to use a small lead when chod fishing due to the extremely short hook link, the last thing you want is a big lead swinging about potentially causing the hook to fall out. Another alternative would be to use a heli-safe instead of a sleeve, this will ensure the lead will drop whilst you’re playing the fish. I do not understand why, once the swivel has pulled clear of the lead, a small fish cannot be detected in weed. Is this because the weed causes too much friction on the line for its small movements to be detected? Either way free flowing or stiffly fixed you are not going to detect it.

Don't worry I wasn't offended I just wanted to be clear that I'm aware of the balance of fish safety and effectiveness. It is not something that can be taken for granted I'm afraid. I would play around with inline leads, and found that rubber tulip beads would hold better than the Korda insert. A couple of manufacturers rubber buffer beads also hold inside the lead.
Gemini has really thought things out and included a couple of additional extras too, including a stainless steel wire tool for mounting the connector on to your tubing, as well as a silicone line stop that is pushed on to your main line to stop the tubing from sliding off as you tie on a new bag! Step 4 – Thread a Covert Tail Rubber up yoru chosen leadcore leader, In this case we’ve used CamFlex. Step 5 – Attach a size 8 Flexi Ring Swivel to the leader by the big ring. Each of the versions come in two different diameters, 5 and 5.75mm, to ensure a neat fit in most inline leads on the market – they really have thought of everything! The entire setup is built to be extremely robust, with a 45lb breaking strain, and by utilising flexible fluorocarbon instead of wire, this can bend and flex without weakening. Furthermore, avoiding the use of wires improves fish safety. All in all they are a fantastic little product that will be a must for solid-bag advocates!

Running rigs are best suited over a cleaner lakebed to prevent the lead from getting plugged in the weed potentially defeating to object of having it free running.I did not want to give the impression that I thought what was being suggested was dangerous. I was trying to make the point that the looser the swivel was coming from the lead the safer it was for smaller fish. Often I have wound in and found something small on the end that not only has wasted all the time that rig was in the water but, if it had been a breakoff, would have killed that small fish. My best carp and catfish rig is a super simple semi-fixed inline lead rig that converts to a running rig for great results. It would be advised to use a hook link with some sort of coating to help with the anti-tangle properties of the rig to ensure on the cast the rig is separated from the line eliminating tangles.

Like all anglers, I have spent hundreds of hours tying carp rigs, tweaking them and looking for the best rig set up and presentation. When I came to France and became the owner of the Beausoleil fishing lake, I realised that I needed to make a bottom bait rig that was easy to tie and suitable for estate-type lakes with big carp, large catfish and sturgeon. Standard Rubber Inline inserts pull out of leads when set-up to allow all leaders/tubing/knots to pass safely through the lead, for fish safety Gemini Tidy Stems are available in two sizes (5mm or 5.75mm) Each size has a specific diameter, designed for use with an inline lead that has an internal diameter/bore that correlates to the Tidy Stems diameter.Have a look at the fox tadpole insert set up, perfect for inlines and PVA bags, they have a ridge on them so initially they stay on, but will easily detach when playing a fish so they are safe to use, the swivel always stays put btw the lead detaches from the insert, I totally agree that confidence is everything. I never go fishing without knowing I am going to catch a fish. Of course, sometimes I am wrong in my convictions and then I learn something new.
