THE PER­FECT PILE

Angling Times (UK) - - UNDERWATER SPECIAL -

A SMALL PVA bag is a great tac­tic for carp, tench and bream, pre­sent­ing a din­ner plate-sized spread of pel­lets with the hook­bait right in the mid­dle. The air trapped in the bag also helps to cush­ion the fall of the rig, so that it does not sink into silt.

One thing to bear in mind, though, is that small pel­lets can very eas­ily be moved around by the wash from pass­ing bream and carp.

I find that it is worth re­cast­ing with a fresh bag reg­u­larly so that there are al­ways plenty of pel­lets around the hook­bait.
