How to tie the Mohawk rig
It has become a deadly rig for carp fishing in winter as Richie Leat proved recently when he banked an incredible 17 thirties and two forties in just six nights fishing. Here’s a step by step on how to tie it…
Step 1: Tie a Ronnie rig in the usual way. CLICK HERE to see how to tie one if you’ve never done it before.
Step 2: Thread a 15mm Monster Tigernut Foodbait pop-up onto a length of floss
Step 3: Now, carefully thread on the maggots, making sure you don’t burst them
Step 4: Pass one end of the floss through the eye of the sewing needle
Step 5: Push the maggots onto the floss and tie a few overhand knots to secure
Step 6: Blob the end of the floss so the knot doesn’t come undone
Step 7: The finished Mohawk rig will look like this – lots of smell, taste, attraction and movement. It works for Richie, it can work for you too!
