If it gets a bit of colour in, you can do the same with a 12mm boilie Dave. 5mm diameter bit of rig foam, 4mm drill bit, plug it through and hair rig through the boilie and foam. Will give a better waft for pressured fish. I am thinking the take on worm was yes because your bait wasn't fouled, but also because it presented more naturally. The same can be achieved with larger pellets if you are careful on the drilling, then hair through the foam. When it swells slightly it grips enough to stay on.
So you were in the right plaice to have a dab(ble ) best you get your skates on or your be floundering around when the river levels rise ( what do you mean I’m an a..sole ? )
Ive already got me coat on the way out !!
Well I called it a day around 1:30'ish as the river was still rising, rubbish was still coming down and fouling the lines, and the wind was bitterly cold so not pleasant sat out in it.
At least I didn't blank, my fully trained worms did me proud, and I managed to get back home to do a tip run that I'd previously booked but was going to let slide.
Needs Must episode 5 coming shortly, well next week all being well, there's a big Bertie in there with my name on it somewhere
