For real extreme pole fishing where larger carp are present and heavy elastics are being used, then look no further than the XS Carp pole rigs, which are tied using the spade-end X-Strong Carp barbless hooks. The size 10 will be sufficient for landing most fish you’re likely to hook as it is tied using 0.22mm line. The size 12 is on 0.19mm; size 14 on 0.17mm; size 16 on 0.15mm; and size 18 on 0.13mm. All three patterns feature perfectly tied spade-end hooks, as neat as anyone can tie them up themselves, and with a figure-of-eight loop knot at the other end for easy attachment to your line. They all come neatly packaged on cards that make them easy to use – no knots as you try to unravel them! – plus they will fit into the Guru Rig Cases.
