MOUNTING A LIVE LAUNCE WITH A SINGLE HOOK
Pass the point of your hook through the mouth of your launce or sandeel, so that it protrudes from under the gill cover.
Pull the entire hook through, then rest the eye up against the mouth and mark where the bend of the hook falls on the belly with your thumb. Pass the hook point through the belly skin like this.
There you have it – a failsafe presentation with a lot of hook-up potential for summer bass.
