      Default Rigs for Worms?

      I've been having a play with Dendro's as hookbaits with reasonable success by simply hair rigging half a worm, but feel I could achieve a better presentation. I've been thinking about using a cork ball with chopped worm glued on, Medussa stylie?

      So, has anyone used them to good effect before and found a particular way of presenting them successfully?

      Regards, Shrop

      Have a look at this months Carpworld. There is a very interesting article about the use of worms by Frank Warwick and John Banister.

      Also in the article it states the following:

      "Always use lobworms, as seven out of ten strains of dendrobeaena worm excrete a poisonous mucus, which fish and animals alike steer clear of."

      I got the Johnson Ross catalogue from this months ACF and have yet to purchase this months issue of CW as I was unaware that it was out yet.

      But thank you Adam, I'll have to venture out to WHSmith's tomorrow and have a look! Cheers!!

      I was led to believe that worms were stuffed full of amino acids, which carp, along with many other species of fish absolutely adore?!

      Stop press......................Frank Warwick descovers unbelievable carp bait...............WORMS.
      In an access all areas interview he reveals all and shows us how to hook them Truely groundbreaking.

      Who'd have thought worms would catch carp eh, next there will be some magazine expert telling me that maggots are a good bait too, nah thats just ridiculous.

      Stick a worm on a big hook Shrop, you dont HAVE to use a hair rig just because your carp fishing.

      Bit of an over reaction if i say so myself.

      Have you read the article yourself? Cause the article shows the preferred method, the kebab worm rig, and how they both like to fish it. Neither claim its a new carp bait, but they make the point of it being heavily unused which it is. They also talk about how effective it can really be if used in the right circumstances.

      instead of messing about with cork / foam ect hair rig the worm or hook it then inject half the worm with air to keep it from burrying itself in the silt / chod.
      i normally use a size 6 with a fake maggot threaded on the eye of the hook then the worm and another fake maggot on the hair , its similar to the magaligner ,
      i call it the "THE WORMINATOR"

      Yeah of coarse i have mate, i never miss a Frank Warwick article, they're solid gold
      I mostly love the "look at me wang a method ball 200 yards so i can catch a pasty" articles. If he's talking about using worms i'd wager there are rubber worms about to hit the shelves from enterprise tackle.

      Just another dig at me Adam, I've learnt to live with it! I'm not as stupid as some may believe! (oh my god! stop press!) I've been tying some rigs up with a ring whipped onto the shank which will allow a big bunch of worms to be tied on with bait floss as well as toying around with the idea of the, 'worm-kebab,' that just sounds awesome! I have some doubts about the effectiveness of the rig and the possibility of the hook blunting with a big bunch of worms wriggling around and doing all sorts of havoc with the presentation of the rig?! Tin hat on; dink, dink!

      think spiller was refering to cccccccarp-unit rather than your post shrop-an-oster.

      Surly anyone who isn't an instant will have fished with worms before? And heaven forbid should anyone have the intelligence to chop a worm up.

      I think Carp Units description of the article was pretty much bang on wether he had read it or not..... and I have.

      Shrop - I used to use Lobs for perch fishing, but always used dendrobeaenas for bream and tench fishing, a nice big bunch of them with hte tips chopped off.

      I used to novel method of hooking them straight on to the hook. With Lobs I used to put a tiny piece of laccy band on the hook afterwards to stop it coming off.

      I get enough stress form catching bream nad tench whilst carping without roach, perch and every other species under the sun interupting my sleep on work night over nighters hence I am not currently using them.
