rig is, basically a pop up rig, enabling anglers to present bait
over a choddy bottomed lake. The chod has proved to be a very
successful carp rig and has been used by many specimen anglers to
catch a lot of big fish.
Although a Chod rig can be used when fishing for most species of
fish it is predominantly known for its use by anglers when carp
fishing over weedy or silty bottom lakes.
If using the conventional ledger fishing technique on a lake or any
water with a weedy or soft muddy bottom your bait could get buried
and therefore not seen by a carp. The Chod rig was specifically
designed for fishing in this situation. Using buoyant baits this rig
will present your bait above the weed or silt no matter how thick
the weed or how deep the lead sinks into the the soft mud.
rig can be adjusted so that the bait can be positioned higher or
lower on the line according to the depth of weed or silt.
