Step 3: Then lace a hook stop onto the bend of the hook
Step 4: Cut around 10mm of shrink tube.
Step 5: Thread shrink tube up the eye of the hook
Step 6: Take quick change ring swivel and clip onto eye of the hook
Step 7: Pull down strink tube over the eye of the hook and onto swivel then steam over kettle.
Step 8: Take your chosen hook length material depending on the lake bed, If a fairly clean bed, our choice, Carp Spirit Combi Stiff – Stiff coated hooklink in 15lb (This will give you a nice stiff boom section).
Step 9: Tie a loop in the ring swivel then tie another loop on the other end to attach to your end tackle
Step 10: Attach your choosen pop up – An all year round carp catcher – Dynamite baits White Chocolate & Coconut Cream then add some tungsten putty to keep the pop-up on the deck
