winter winners

solid bags & single hook baits


RIG MECHANICS. This rig uses an in-line lead and a small, supple hooklink of around three-inches long. This is very effective because it is a short hooklink with a semi-fixed in-line lead that gives fantastic hooking. It’s also great because it’s a ‘mouthful-of-food’ trick for the carp and it works incredibly well.

TYPE OF LAKEBED. The beauty of this presentation is that it can be cast anywhere, from clean gravel areas to low-lying weed. Thanks to the PVA bag nothing can get snagged up or mask the hook point and ruin your presentation.

WHAT HOOKBAIT. Small hookbaits are perfect because of the micro feed used inside the PVA bag.

Single Hook Baits

Single flouro high attract pop ups are and can be a devastating winter tactic. Simply add a very small PVA sock of pellets or crushed up boilie over the hook point for a quick & light snack. This can’t fail if placed in the right spot.
