FAKE CORN METHOD FEEDER

Best for: CARP, F1s, BREAM, TENCH When you’re bag­ging up on com­mer­cial carp you don’t want to waste time with your rig out of the wa­ter. Us­ing a piece of fake corn on the hair means you don’t have to worry about adding a new hook­bait as you would if us­ing pel­lets, and as long as your hook is sharp you can keep us­ing the same rig. The hook­bait is also highly vis­i­ble and will stand out over ei­ther the mi­cro pel­let or ground­bait used to fill the feeder. As well as com­mer­cial carp, the flatbed Method feeder is a great tac­tic for big tench and bream.

LINK-LEG­ERED FAKE BREAD

Best for: CHUB This sim­ple set-up is a great take-any­where chub rig and can eas­ily be flicked into any likely-look­ing chub haunts. Pinch­ing a large split shot on to the hook­link will act as an an­chor, and the hook­link will waft around en­tic­ingly just off the riverbed. This set-up works well as a sin­gle hook­bait, but if you feel more con­fi­dent with a bit of loose­feed, swap the bomb for a cage feeder filled with liq­uidised bread. Be­cause the bread­flake is a big bait use a large hook such a size 6.
