Thanks dave i think that may have been my problem.I`ve not had a lot of experience fishing with soft hooking pellets as most places i fish ban them.I must learn not to strike at bites!i was fishing the pole with size 12 hook from the off and just could not hit the carp!
Hi, Don't strike when using pellet. let your pole do the work as a bolt rig, carp hit bait
hard and self hook, have a float to pole line
distance of six inch

only use 18 or a 16s thats with most bait
corn/meat, try the Preston NU carp barbless
they look like a bent pin but have the staying
power, or the B911 series,The reason i don't
use hooks much bigger a lot of venues have a
limit to size 14s,I use a 20s B911 up in the water,with pellet and have found out that they
hold better than a larger hook, fish 3,lb +.
