Korda Mouth Trap Chod Filament
The ultimate hooklink material for tying chod rigs is here!!
The key element with this is that it is easier to tie stiff rigs with. It is not only easier to tie but shaping a finished rig, imparting a curve for example, is much easier than other materials.
It doesnt need steaming either.
Finished with a nice natural carpy tint that will blend in with any background and in 3 key breaking strains.
Easy to use, easy to shape and form stiff rigs, doesnt need steaming, carpy tint, a genuine improvement on what is currently available.

FIELD TESTING MOUTHTRAP by ADRIAN SPRITTLES
April is our annual trip to Sandhurst and as a group of nine friends; we book the whole lake for a 48-hour session. After a couple of walks round, we had the draw and all headed off to our chosen swims.
As soon as I arrived on the island, which was my designated swim, I saw something carpy roll in front of me. That was enough for and I soon sent a hinged stiff rig out made up with the new Mouthtrap, chod filament, which will be available very soon.
Within 20 minutes that rod was away and I was really pleased to be off the mark with an 18lb common.
That kind of changed my plans a little and I soon had two rods out on this set up over a baited area. I had just about got sorted out and sat down when the other one ripped off - this time a 30lb 2oz mirror was the culprit. After having two fish fairly quickly, the word soon got round the lake and it wasn’t long before a few of the lads were also on the Mouthtrap stiff rigs.
Gary, who was on the island with me, grabbed a spool and soon had some tied up. After an hour or so, he had his first take on one! Over the weekend he became a “chod filament convert” having four 20s to 27lb and with 2 hrs to go he managed the magnificent Nige’s fish at 40lb 2oz after moving a rod onto a spot he had been baiting up over the weekend.
Dan was top rod in the end with 10 fish which also included two 30 pounders, after Neil had set him up with a quick stiff-rig school. In total, 37 fish were landed over the weekend including six 30’s and a 40 - all but one of the 30s coming out on the Mouthtrap. Maggots still put fish on the bank for us but by far the chods and hinged stiff rigs were out fishing them over beds of Cell. It was a fantastic weekends fishing with a lot of 20lb plus hard-fighting fish around.
For a couple of the “chod filament converts” in our group it was the first time playing around with stiff rig links - after seeing some of them since the trip they have now been well and truly converted!

Marc says: If you’re anything like me, then you probably go through stages when a certain rig is in vogue. For me at the moment, this is the hinged stiff rig and I tend to use this stiff material to tie mine.
Available in several breaking strains, I like the 20lb because it offers enough rigidity without being impossible to use. The colour, a translucent green, appeals to me and I find it easy to shape into a curve after tying the hook section.
