Spicy Peperami is tougher in texture than standard, processed meats, being popular with big fish anglers because it stays on the hook well and can also be hair-rigged.
Peperami is used extensively by specimen anglers for tempting carp, chub and barbel, but it also makes a great change bait for general coarse fishing. After starting a session with pellet hook baits, which are widely used on many types of venues these days, a switch to a segment of Peperami is a great way of bringing dying swims back to life.
This bait works wonders when fished over a bed of pellets, or hair-rigged with Method feeder tackle for carp. Smaller pieces can also be used directly on the hook in combination with hemp, smaller feed pellets or meaty groundbait.
Another good trick is to finely chop some Peperami and luncheon meat before mixing them in with groundbait, which works a treat for tench and bream. A similar mix of spicy, mulched meat can be used in open-end feeders for river fish, too. DYNAMIC TRAVEL
