Try hair rigged caster or meat over a bed of hemp and caster.
This seems the more popular formula.

You can also try boilies over a bed of hemp and crushed boilies or
pellets.

Hope this helps, and good luck with the match!

Pellets with hemp works too.

Barbel, meat is probably the best bait try using pieces ranging in size from a piece the size if your little finger nail on say a 12/10's hook up to say a 1inch 25mm cube on a hair. You could try sprinkling some turmeric over the meat and leaving it to soak. A bed of hemp is always a good idea from a feeder.
Alternative baits to try sweetcorn up tp 6 grains on a size 4/6 hook, hot dog sausages, pepperami garlick sausage the list goes on. I forgot to include maggot and caster to oh and worms big lob worms 2 on a size 6 works wonders.

chill out go fishing
