The Daddy Longlegs Rig
The best anti-eject rig I've ever used says Dave Drought.
The Daddy Longlegs RigI invented this back in the 80s and it has accounted for numerous fish on hard waters.
Try this one the next time the little b******ds are just picking the bait up and ejecting without moving. It's the best anti-eject rig I've ever use on the odd occasions when I have had to use one.
Using 15/20lb mono, whip a loop onto the hook as shown in photo, then cut to length. This depends on size of fish, but the legs should be about 1/2 to 3/4ins. The legs fold flat as the carp sucks the bait in. Then spring out making it almost impossible to eject the bait.
Don't forget, if this rig pops up in one of the carp mags with someone else's name on it, it's not theirs, it's mine,
