I love fishing a top 2 +1 and feeding a constant stream of bait, half a handfull every few seconds, on a commercial you often get into a rhythm with small fish and then every so often hit a lump. It is not usually a match winning method but will often get you in the frame and it is so enjoyable. My problem is, I find it most effective when I throw in a very small nugget of cloudy groundbait every minute or so but, most fishery rules state that groundbait can only be introduced via a feeder or pole cup. I once had a seperate pole set up with a cup and used this to feed over my float but the bailiff told me this was not allowed; very frustrating!:cry:

I used a set of 3 or 4 clip on cups of varying sizes to do this & that was about 15yrs ago so I’m sure they are available somewhere.

Tiny cups for bloodworm on the canal up to one that would take a golf ball sized offering of groundbait - very soft plastic too so no risk of damaging a skinny top section.

In fact these may have been them or an earlier incarnation: Maver Squeezee Pole Pots

The two venues I fish most regularly ban groundbait (one allows in feeder only, the other totally) so I have got used to fishing without groundbait. Micro pellets make an acceptable alternative.

But you should be able to throw sloppy groundbait at +1 distance. You may not think so but it is possible and something I do on the canal with liquidised bread.

That was the problem Neil, rules stated cup or feeder only, throwing it in by hand was not allowed.

Make your own for nothing. Use any cap or container from Fruit Shoot caps to aerosol tops.
