Banded corn

Fished a club match yesterday and set up two lines, one pellet and one corn. Nothing doing on pellet, so I changed to the corn. Being a bit lazy I didn't change the rig, just banded the corn. Almost immediately I started catching fairly regularly (carp and skimmers). It struck me that the corn didn't really look natural so I changed to a plain hook and started getting a fish a chuck to the end of the match (which I won!!). Does anyone else use banded corn, and was my increased catch rate coincidental?
