Angler's Mail looks at some of the main types of meats used as fishing baits, with some top tips on getting the best out of them. Flick through all the following pages and you will become a bona fide 'meat master'!

The solution is meat stops.
These winged Fox stops can be pushed under the bend of the hook when directly mounting meat, or used like a conventional bait stop when hair rigging.
