Exclusive Alternative Baits
in place and you lightly hook the
bait opposite to the shot. This has
the effect of making the hook stay
out of the water and not only does it
hide it from the view of the carp, it
also creates a very efficient hooking
arrangement without anything
potentially impeding the hooking.
The second item I like to have in
my floater fishing arsenal is a selection of cork balls and plugs, which
are easily used in natural form or
will readily accept your chosen
flavour or oil by putting them in
soak prior to fishing for that added
attraction. The cork balls and plugs
can be trimmed to naturalise their
look from the machined finished
products you buy and they can be
hair rigged or glued directly to the
back of the shank of the hook or
tied on with a latex band. Their
buoyancy makes them suitable for
using a slightly larger hook if you
desire, and they really are a great
edge for floater fishing or zig rigging to tempt those midwater
