When do I add soil to groundbait?
WHEN would I need to add soil to groundbait? What consistency should the groundbait be? Colin Trice, Bradford-on-Avon
MOLEHILL soil is used on deep and fast-flowing rivers to add weight to the groundbait mix, getting it to the bottom quickly.
Anglers add a couple of kilos of soil to the same amount of groundbait. Your mix shouldn’t be too wet to accommodate the soil, provided that you have stored it correctly when collecting it.
Try and find the damper soil and pop it in a tightly-sealed plastic bag to retain this moisture. If the soil is too dry it will absorb moisture from the groundbait and the balls won’t bind properly.
