Maybe you will be right! I'm quite looking forward to trying this tomorrow though. Some things that I think will work in my favour although I agree with your points.
- I'm fishing in an eddy along the edge of a crease in slack water and I hope the mash and to a certain extent the liquidised will swirl round and settle where I'm fishing rather than end up downstream.
- I have just bought some new Punches size 6mm, 8mm, 10mm, and 12mm so can go up to a size 12 hook if needed with the 12mm punch which hopefully will expand on the hook as usual and be a pretty big bait like Flake for the Roach and Chublets (with the hope of bonus Chub)
- I have seen good a good catch on here reported on the Severn with 6mm and 8mm punch that fills me with a bit of confidence it should work on the weir.
- I feel the small fish here are too ravenous for feeder fishing, you cast out, get a rattle on your tip almost on the drop and the bait has been shredded.
All good points though the above we will see tomorrow if it goes to plan! I have maggots and casters for back up so...
