ANGLER’S MAIL is No.1 for tips and tricks! Here’s another one from Brian Gay, the man to follow in our magazine’s unbeatable Where To Fish section and tackle section too.

If you are like me you will probably end up with lots of partially used bags of groundbait, because you didn’t need to mix a whole bag during a session.

Well these leftovers are excellent for my variety mix which works very well on flooded rivers. I basically save these remnants and mix them all together for balling in off the rod end on flooded rivers and then fish a lobworm feeder over the top.

It’s excellent. True there are days when specific types of groundbaits are more effective than others but on a flooded river it’s more a case of using groundbait than what the flavour is. As long as the mix isn’t a lightweight cloud you should be fine.
