For feed, I have a mix of red and white mag­gots, but tend to use reds on the hook, un­less the wa­ter is very clear. It pays div­i­dends to vary how many mag­gots go into the feeder. There is cer­tainly no need to stuff the feeder with mag­gots, as fewer will empty much quicker, and also pre­vent over­feed­ing the fish. Once we move into win­ter, a pint of mag­gots may be more than enough. For now, I am be­ing quite ag­gres­sive, in a bid to feed off the small roach and arouse the in­ter­est of carp and F1s. I have one fresh and one float­ing mag­got im­paled on my size 14 Ga­makatsu Power hook. I also like to try two floaters and one sinker, for a slower fall.
