CAST­ERS are a se­ri­ously good big-fish bait, whether you are tar­get­ing carp, tench, bar­bel or roach. One prob­lem, though, is feed­ing them ac­cu­rately, but if Be­fore feed­ing cast­ers they must be com­pletely dry. I use a piece of kitchen towel to ab­sorb all the mois­ture be­fore With com­pletely dry hands, put two pieces of dis­solv­able foam in the end of a PVA stick. Gently com­press the cast­ers in the PVA mesh. Don’t burst the baits, other­wise the juice will dis­solve the PVA. you think about it, they are no dif­fer­ent to pel­lets and can be eas­ily fed in a PVA stick or bag.

Here’s how I pre­pare my caster sticks... I start. You can also add a small amount of ground­bait, as this too will soak up any resid­ual liq­uid from the cast­ers. Feed the cast­ers into the PVA loader and then shake them down the tube. I use wide bore PVA mesh and a 4iins stick for carp and bar­bel. Hook the PVA stick on through the dis­solv­able foam.
