Dunno about you guys but that filled in a couple of holes in my knowledge. Unless he's making it up as he goes along of course :)

It is also a good thread to point out how some anglers over complicate methods, that already work, trying to seek out that ultimate rig.
I should know i have been there when i was seriously in to Carp Fishing (well i thought i was anyway).

Sorry for my late post, but i just went through the article and have something to add:

The Hair rig was first described in a german Angling magazine in the late 1930´ies , along with another method of hooking a piece of potato which was first tied with two strands of line in packet style.

I will rummage through my magazines for the article.

I just looked and didn´t find it. I will add it, when i do.

There was a paste mentioned as well, which was made from Potatoes and semolina and eggs added, then cooked in water = Boilies ...

And the Hair rig was used to bait those cooked paste-balls ...

Nothing new ... ;)
