Tommy Pickering’s top Autumn mix
IT CAN be a tricky business getting your pellets to stick correctly to a Method feeder, and not get stuck in a mould.
It’s very easy to get wrong, but follow my simple guide and you’ll get it right every time. The ideal scenario is to have your feed stay on the feeder until it hits the bottom. Then it can break down in a small pile and expose the hookbait.
If the bait breaks up when the feeder lands it will disperse over too wide an area. If you get a bite within eight seconds of casting in, your mix is breaking up too quickly!
7 Press the button at the back to release. The layer of groundbait stops bait sticking in the mould.
4 Take a pinch of mixed groundbait (slightly damp) and put it on the base of a mould.
6 Add another layer of pellets to fill the rest of the mould. Press the back of the feeder into the mould.
1 Soak 2mm micro pellets in water in one of the new Preston Pellet Wetters for two minutes.
3 I’d also mix some groundbait up, my favourite being Sonubaits Supercrush Expander.
5 Add a layer of pellets to the mould, then your hookbait, attached on a short hooklength.
2 Remove and put the pellets in a tub. Add a small scoop of Sonubaits Stiki Pellet and mix well.
