How to Tie the Chod Rig

Posted by in How to... on January 15, 2014 . 0 Comments.

how to tie the chod rigHow to tie the Chod Rig: The chod rig is a technique for carp fishing, it has seen a lot of publicity in late 2009 and 2010 for its fish catching ability.

The chod rig is consistently effective at catching carp, generally regarded to have two main advantages; the way in which it allows a bait to be displayed over soft mud, weed or debris is the first key benefit and secondly is the distinct shape of the rig itself and the way the chosen bait (usually a bhouyant substance) is attached. The latter benefit is also generally utilised in the chod rig's immediate ancestor, the well known and used, stiff-hinged rig. In so it revolves around a rig consisting of a rigid or stiff link, an aggressively angled hookpoint and the ability to spring 360 degrees around the axis of the hook.

The chod rig is widely used and developed by large fishing manufacturers such as Korda. Industry head-liners like Jim Shelley and Terry Hearn use the chod rig to great effects. Known carp like Benson and Heather the Leather have been captured by the chod rig

Overall the two key features of the chod combine to make it very difficult for a carp to avoid or physically dislodge the hook once being snared. Also, the hookholds that the chod delivers are generally very strong and secure, causing less damage to the fish's mouth. Not only do very few fish fall off with this set-up, but they suffer minimal damage.

Components needed to make a Chod Rig –

    Hook
    Teflon ring
    Stiff Line (Fluorocarbon is preferable)
    Swivel
    Flexi Beads
    Silicone tubing
    Leadercore
    Kwik Change Sleeve
    Lead or Casting Weight

During 2012 a version of this rig, called the Flying Chod rig, was made popular by Jim Shelley. He had a massive amount of success using it. On a normal chod rig the short hook length is held in place by a stop on the line, a flying chod does not use any form of stop, when a fish picks up the bait it can run freely.
