I don't see it up here in the North East for pleasure fishing....except perhaps surreptitiously on Derwent Reservoir (Durham) when lads are practicing tactics for Loch Ken.
However...go to Scotland and fish the bigger lochs...especially in a match and most use two
hooks as it is allowed in Scottish Match Angling Rules but banned in England.

A good few years ago now...a festival on Loch Ken was won with hundreds of pounds of large Bream.
I watched many anglers reeling in two 8 to 10lb Bream at a time from an 80 yard chuck.
Quite impressive.

I have used the two hook rig , 20+ years ago though , on startops and the king George ressi , the reason it was used , was the fishing was so hard , the extra hook/bait gave you another chance , never seen or used it with the hook below the feeder , both hooks were above it , Alan Wilson and many of the known speci anglers used it for roach .
10lb main line 3lb hooklengths , made it quite safe , safer than plastic baits ,that's for sure .
Would I use it now , no , but that's because I want to catch roach on the float , preferably trotting .
And another thing , most clubs didn't allow three rods back then .

Yeah no problem, thats why I asked as I thought it was rather strange. Have seen pics of people using it at LH and catching larger roach.

Using boilies would be a no go in my book, even if you are using 10mm jobbies due to the risk of a carp picking it up and getting damaged by the second hook.

I can think of articles by two "names" i've seen online (i guess in print it would raise eyebrows).

Would be nice to see an argument FOR two hook rigs from someone who has used them. I can't see how having a second hook just 6 inches away from the other would gain any advantage? One hard on the deck and one just above?

Could a catch at any cost sentiment be used here..?

I would not use this nor advocate it,.i fished with someone,a very famous carp angler...they used a two hook,boily rig..as soon as I saw this,instantly my respect was gone...


It is not in the spirit of roaching,its not good ...👎


Not a dig at you mate,just my feelings on this...ok..

I've seen in the past several anglers using a hook above and below the feeder.

Obviously apart from the extra 100% chance of a hook up, are there any advantages?
