The result of combining the two key elements; mounting hookbaits on a ‘D’ and creating the aggressive hooking action with the Hook Aligner kicker, means rigs using these components will react faster and hook more carp. The unique Covert Pop-Up Hook Aligners can be used with almost any hook and hooklink combination as well. This means that you can now use D-Rigs with either coated or uncoated braids or even light monofilaments.
Mounting the hookbait a couple of mm off the back of the hook shank on a free moving hinge ensures that when the hookbait is inhaled or mouthed by a browsing fish, then the weight of the hook forces the hook point to drop. In combination with the angle created by the Hook Aligner the two factors work together so the hook turns aggressively taking a firm hold on the fishes bottom lip or in the scissors.
Gardner Covert Pop-Up Hook Aligners can be used to mount most hookbaits, including balanced hookbaits and bottom baits – they’re not just for pop-ups!
They are quick and easy to use – no need to steam, shrink or shape before use! Just follow these simple steps:
Mount a Large Covert Rig Ring, Flexi Hook Swivel or Hook Swivel onto the preformed ‘D’ and thread the Hook Aligner onto the hooklink using a baiting needle. We find it is easiest with a Braided Hair Needle as it doesn’t catch pulling through the rubber compound used in their manufacture.
Position the Pop-Up Hook Aligner (as shown on the diagram) by pushing the Hook Aligner up over the hook eye.
