Best for: CARP A great way of get­ting quicker bites is to make your hook­bait stand out from all the free of­fer­ings. Tip­ping a boilie with a small piece of ar­ti­fi­cial corn is an easy way to achieve this. The colour yel­low has a proven track record, but don’t be afraid to ex­per­i­ment with other colours such as white or red.


Best for: CARP, TENCH, BREAM Use a bait­ing nee­dle to thread a sink­ing mag­got on to your hook­link (mak­ing sure the hook­link ex­its the mag­got from the side just be­low the top) and push it down over the eye of the hook. The an­gle at which the hook­link leaves the mag­got helps the hook to flip over and catch hold of a fish’s bot­tom lip when it picks up the rig and re­sults in more pos­i­tive bites. It also aids rig cam­ou­flage and makes it harder for wary fish to spot the hook. Fish with a cou­ple of real of fake sink­ing mag­gots on the hook and cast out with a large PVA bag filled with wrig­glers. Visit www.nextgen­er­a­ for more in­for­ma­tion on Klone Baits
