The Cheb rig is a hugely versatile piece of equipment and is ideal in situations where the angler doesn’t stay in one spot for a long period of time. If you often find yourself moving from place to place, you will need a rig that is going to be able to adapt to this and the Chebrig can do this.
For anyone who will fish in various different situations, for example, if you find yourself in different swims, depths or conditions then a Cheb rig will be versatile enough to cater to your needs. Most importantly, it takes very little effort to make these adaptations from place to place.
The beauty of the Cheb rig is that it is ideal for fishing in all seasons and can be put in your fishing bag to be used all year round. This is ideal for perch fishing which is one of the few types of angling that can be done without issue throughout the entire year. Perch spawn in spring and so will be quite active but are also excellent catches in winter when they are at their largest.
The best time of day to go perch fishing during the low light of dusk and dawn. If you have had little success in landing a catch at these times, a Cheb rig could be something of a game-changer for you.
You may need to get used to using a Cheb rig as they are quite unlike anything else. However, one of the best tips we can offer is that once the weight lands, you will need to have a little patience since the bait may take a while to bob up. Once it has, try moving no more than six inches at a time before letting it settle again.
