Stalk stop

ANCHORS AWAY 
...Meat can be anchored on a hair rig with various types of bait or boilie stops, but these tend to be on the small side and pull through soft baits quite easily. There are bigger meat stops you can buy from tackle shops, although there are plenty of impromptu stops you can normally find out on the bank. Short cut pieces of grass, reed and stalks make brilliant anchors and they don’t cost anything!
