Notty – Big Dogs on Chods

25th March 2020

Our good mate Ian ‘Notty’ Mclaughlan is as mad as a hatter, and normally a bit off the radar, but he’s kindly shared some nice old carp he’s caught on our ready tied chod leaders.

It’s not uncommon to hear Notty ‘Woofing’ and cries of ‘Geoffrey!’ around the Berkshire area – a very eccentric and humble angler, but anyone that knows him knows his passion for carp angling, watercraft and location skills are second to none. 

Notty has been using our ready tied chod leaders for quite some time, which is a testament to their high standard! Tied to our own exacting specifications using our 45lb Olive Camo Leadcore, PTFE Size 11 Ring Swivel, Leadcore Safety Top Bead, 8mm Green Oval Bottom Bead, Green Boom Shocker and Small Oval Clip for changing a lead size quickly.

Six feet long, and 3 in a pack, it’s always worth having a packet in your rucksack for those times when you need to get a hookbait out into some unknown territory quickly!
