The helicopter rig is a perfect rig setup to use when fishing for carp in ponds and lakes with weedy bottoms. The helicopter rig has a hooklink that rotates around the leader like the blades of a helicopter when you cast out the fishing line. It is a great rig for avoiding tangles. The rig’s spinning motion causes the hooklink to stretch out, which stops it from getting tangled in the leader when casting and retrieving.
For this rig, add a lead weight on the end of the line, making the rig more aerodynamic. This allows it to work especially well for casting long distances. You also have the option of moving the adjusting the position of the top bead to allow the hooklink to present effectively even when retreiving across rough terrains.
