We all know how good the conventional chod rig is at presenting a pop up hookbait down over all sorts of stuff on the bottom; bits of weed, silt and leaves, giving the perfect presentation every time.
However, on occasions it can be a little bit blatant. The Roddie is a hugely effective alternative to the conventional chod rig, and it incorporates the super effective hooking mechanics of Ronnie end section. Essentially, you end up with a really consistent presentation that is a little subtler low lying pop up presentation that will fool even the wariest feeding carp.
Whether you are constructing the end section yourself or buying the readymade versions, all you have to do is mount them as a flying hook section on a conventional chod setup. Make sure whatever hookbait you use that the bait can settle down nice and gently, balanced to settle slowly under the weight of the Camflex leadcore or Leadfree. Or balanced with some Critical Mass putty moulded around the shrink tube if you elect to fish it ‘naked’ style on a Fluorocarbon leader or mainline.
