Unfortunately thats paste fishing. You get lots of liners mate, all i would say is wait a second after the float buries before lifting into bites.
I still get foul hooked fish but practice does make perfect mate.
I tryed paste for the first time on a local pond with my pole with the best fish beaing a 2 1/4 skimmer. However i think i may have mixed my paste wrong in some way because it didnt hold together very well on my hookbait and kept falling off. In the end i started using it as more of a groundbait. How have i mixed it wrong???
Buy a bag of Ringers bag up paste it has instructions on the bag how to mix it and you use the bag to measure the correct amount of water then you will see the correct consistency you need for when you make your own paste 
Clive, I have no problems with the ringers paste, works well if mixed a damn sight more sloppy than the measurements on the packet. Works well for fishing the feeder at that consistancy. The other thing is that i can make at least 4 times that amount of paste for that price with my methods.
Try grinding expanders, they are better than any groundbait even using as groundbait. Mix with water from the lake on the day, for paste mix sloppy as it sets like concrete if not, try a little at first to experiment. I fish dead depth or maybe very slightly over depth. The bites I go for are a very sharp knock or dip, at first I was leaving these bites but they are the ones to hit, I thought they was the liners for a year or so but it's big wise fish sucking in and blowing out, usually the bits come when the paste hits the bottom (instant). Lift the bait off the bottom and drop it again, to induce the bites, feed the same mix, maybe with some hemp mixed in. Fish soft as possible, I fish close in and if I miss the bite it takes no time to rebait the hook and back in. Try it; you don't need to wait until mid summer, expanders are low in oil so it will work form April to October, maybe earlier with the warm winters. I have my first matches booked from April and I will fish this paste until October, I fish no other method if I can, it sorts the big fish out, cheap to fish, I buy 20Kg sack of expanders for around 20. I have used ringers and it looks very much like ground expanders.
I hope to change my name next year from "pool fodder" to "match winner" although it could be "talks ****e"
idiots guide to paste
just buy a bag a cats and dogs netbuster paste.
it comes with a small pot in it and all you need to do is put two tubs of paste powder to 1 tub of water, and it mixes perfect everytime!!
easier than faffin about with food mixers, boiling water,etc.
i've always used this and it has caught when all other pastes have failed!![^]
Swim stim is wot i use boiling water method mixed on the sloppy side if you have probs. keeping on the hook first hook a pellet size meat then paste around that added advantage if the paste all gone you still got bait on the hook but once they start taking it proper dispense with the meat. feed depends on the day
