Can Fish See the hook + Rig etc, in Coloured Lakes?
Here a really murky "commercial lake" is chosen for the test.
A snowman rig is cast out into 4 feet of water and the camera slowly lowered until it is inches from
the bait. No lighting is used, although it was a fairly sunny day (10:00AM).
Notice how when the camera gets close to the bait how much you can see.
From a distance the rig is invisible. However, when a fish takes a bait it must by default be very close
to it, not from a distance.
So, how much of our tackle can they see?
See for yourself

Whats's in a rig part1. The poor rig
Some anglers say location is the most important aspect in Carp fishing. Others
say (including the tackle industry) rigs are important.
I decided to put this to the test.
Here a poorly construced rig is placed in a good location.

The rig has
not been sabotaged, all components are new out of the packet and the
hook is sharp. however, its all wrong. The hair is too short, the balance is wrong,
the lead is too light and the knots are reverse tied etc. This poorly constructed rig
was rejected by the fish about 20 times over 3 hours. Here are the highlights.
What do you think
