I use a 15 inch QUICKSTOP Hair Rig for Maggot feeder & Bomb, & a 4 Inch one for Method feeder.
As I have had the unfortunate falling through of my childcare for the weekend, meaning I can no longer attend Wingham, I am consoling myself with a trip to a reservoir tomorrow to cheer myself up. I am planning on fishing a maggot feeder with dendrobaena on the hook. I was wondering what hook size and hooking technique you guys find most effective with worms? Do you head hook them or side hook them? Nip the tail off? Basically how do you hook yours and any other tips when fishing them.
Size 16 hook to 6 Lb for Tench & size 14 or 12 or 10 to 7, 8 or even 10 Lb (the BS goes up with the hook size on ready tied.) for the Big Boys!!!
Rightly or wrongly?? - I push the Quickstop through the middle. Carp anyway, don't seem to mind.
I often put two worms on especially if they're on the small side - also generates a bit more wriggle.
I sometimes also do a Worm & Corn cocktail - very easy done with a Quickstop.
I'll even load the hook its self with a bunch of Maggots.
