Since Gardner Tackle started producing videos and writing about the Ronnie Rig it has established itself as an amazingly effective low pop up arrangement. It’s a sensationally effective pop up presentation that will rightfully stand the test of time, like other classics such as the Hinged Stiff Rig, Chod Rig, Magaligner, Blow Back, etc.
Each pack of ready made Ronnie Rigs includes three perfectly constructed ‘hook sections’ that have been constructed to exacting standards here in the UK and their launch now makes this rig available to everyone!
These Ronnie Rigs use our exquisitely sharp size 4 and size 6 Covert Dark Mugga hooks attached to the new dedicated XT Flexi-Ring Kwik Lok Swivel. Essentially, the combination of the Mugga hook’s in-turned eye, swept shank and amazing razor sharp point is particularly effective in getting the most out of these rigs, as it creates a fast and aggressive reacting hooking mechanism that takes a firm hook hold. Each end section features a mat finished sliding Covert Hook Swivel, held in position with a Covert Hook Stop.
This phenomenal rig has been tried, tested and proven time and time again on big carp waters across the UK and Europe with truly devastating results!
To get started, all you need to do is tie your favoured hooklink material onto the Flexi-Ring, tailoring the hooklink length and material to the nature of the lake bed you’re fishing over and the lead arrangement that you are using. As a rough guide we recommend monofilaments like our hugely successful Trick-Link and Invisi-Link for Helicopter rigs, and softer hooklinks like the awesome Ultra Skin on Covert Lead Clip (or similar) arrangements.
Finally, all you need to do is tie on a pop up that is buoyant enough to hold the rig section up. You should add a small amount of Critical Mass (Tungsten Putty) moulded around the shrink tubing, that holds the XT Swivel in place, so the rig sinks slowly to the lake bed. If the hookbait is not buoyant enough the hook will not be able to rotate freely and this will detract from the rigs ultimate performance.
We generally prefer to use and recommend a small pop up. The easiest way to attach readymade pop ups is to thread a section of main line or dental floss onto the hook swivel and pull the two tags through the bait. Pull the dental floss through the bait whislt pushing the pop up onto the Covert Hook Swivel eye (which helps keep it in place). Finally, tie a number of granny knots flush to the outside of the hook bait, trim the floss to 1cm and blob the tag ends to secure the hook bait firmly in place.
