HOW do I hook hemp cor­rectly?

Stu­art Jarvis, Roys­ton

IT LOOKS fid­dly but is easy with the right tools. With a bait­ing nee­dle or the wire stem of a pole float, punch a hole in the base of the grain of hemp (the flat­tened part where it was at­tached to the plant).

Feed the hook through this hole and out of the split in the grain, giv­ing the hook a solid an­chor­ing point to make sure that the grain stays on, even when you miss a bite.
