Meat shapes and hooks

When using luncheon meat don’t be afraid to experiment with different shapes. 
It might be easier to cut soft meat into cubes but on hard fished venues the occupants soon wise up! Try ragged shapes on the hook, which will often fool ultra wary barbel, chub, tench and carp. 
It’s also worth mashing or mulching luncheon meat into small pieces to keep fish grazing over your feed for longer periods.
