it tells you how to make them in this weeks angling times from the widget from cans of boddingtons and the good thing is you get to drink beer for them i told the wife i needed to drink lots of boddingtons for fishing, best excuse ever!

Drill a small bouncy ball, glue a swivel in then push pins in till its just past neutral bouyancy, if you want it to float take a few pins out . Simple and casts really well.

Thats a variation of what has been mentioned,this method used to be called fishing the grape as the plastic grapes that you used to see at such as Morrisons were used,but later were made out of the super bouncy balls that you can get at most toy stores,you weight them to almost neutral boyancy the put shot on the line to make them sink very slowly,you spray bait at it and if the fish are up for it you can get a lot of fish in succession.

the easiest way to make 1 is to cut the top off of a pellet wag.
