BREADCRUMB is an excellent groundbait for attracting fish into your swim but in fast flowing water it will often break up before reaching the bottom, taking the fish downstream with it.

Here’s a trick to get a great breadcrumb and fishmeal groundbait mix on the bottom where it’ll break up nicely to draw fish into your swim…

1 Gather the ingredients and put the brown crumb in the mixing bowl.

2 Add an equal quantity of fishmeal feed and mix it in.

3 Water is added and mixed in by hand to give a stiff groundbait.

4 Take a large stone and place it in the middle. This makes it sink even more quickly.

5 Finish the balls off by moulding them into complete balls. These will sink to the bottom without breaking up on the way down and then break up on the bottom.
