It would seem that fashions in carp angling come and go and when you think you are the first on to something invariably you find everyone is doing the same. So who still does any of these and why?

 

Tipping your hookbait with plastic corn.

 

Fishing slack lines all the time! Madness when snag fishing but I see anglers doing it all the time and using backleads in snaggy situations.

 

PVA mesh tube of pellet or broken boilies.

 

Lets hear about any other trends, maybe we could start some new ones? Camo everything seems to have vanished or maybe I can't see them. :rolleyes:

I use the PVA mesh tube full of pellets and / or broken boilies

Why?

So that I can continue to catch more than anyone else  :bleh:

I have been doing that ever since hooks came in looped packets (about 40 years ago I guess)

 

It is nearly as long as that since I last looked at the carp forum !

 

PS, I have two sets for freshwater - one barbless and one microbarbed.  That is to comply with whatever rules apply at whatever place I happen to be fishing.  So far, I have always remembered to take the right set to the right place ..........
