The Withy Pool Rig was the invention of Steve Renyard who was one of the most successful anglers to ever fish Withy Pool in Bedforedshire. Probably down to this rig as well! Here is my version of the rig. A great fish catcher that has stood the test of time on a huge scale on a very many different waters...

Have never tried it myself but hard a search and found something that could help.

Try this mate for explaination of how to tie it and it has a link on there for problems with it. ;)

This page prefers to use a bit of shrink tube instead of a ring

Heres a video of how to tie it with a ring.

Is there anyone that ties their own and uses this rig but has another way of doing it? First hand experience and all that. ;)
Checkbook and pen......again!!!!

Only just noticed I never replied I'm sorry fella, I use a small ring on the hook as it acts as a blow back ring/ anti eject type thing
Just saw in a mag someone using it saying how they line the shrink tube up with the hook end etc feel like writing in as I was thought to do it that way when I started

To be honest i have never tried it. Have just stuck to the KD and using the knotless knot with a tiny piece of shrink tube on the arch of the hook. Fishing Drayton nearly all the time i dont need to fish too complicated and keep it simple but may look into this rig to try and reduced the odd bumped fish on the take.
