The mag-aligner has not only proved devastating for carp but also for tench, bream, chub and barbel. Invented by Big Carp editor Rob Maylin.
Maggot fishing can be a deadly tactic for carp particularly in the winter months when the small nuisance fish are less active.
It was Rob Maylin who discovered that by sliding one of our fake maggots over the eye of the hook, it not only created a line aligner effect which ensures the hook turns in the fishes mouth, resulting in very efficient hooking, but also helps to disguise the hook. With 2 or 3 real maggots nicked on the hook and fished helicopter style in conjunction with a large PVA bag of maggots, Rob had created one of the deadly carp rigs ever. He named it the Mag-Aligner.
Our Mag-Aligner grubs have been developed specifically for the rig to Rob’s exact specification. Made from a much harder material than our imitation maggots to maximise the line aligner effect, they are also straight in appearance which helps when threading them on the rig.
