2. Press the Method feeder into the mix in the mould, and squeeze.
3. Add the hookbait onto of a little bit more the mix.
4. Re-apply the Method feeder and squeeze firmly.

TOP TIPS FOR METHOD FEEDER FISHING
It’s important to have a range of hook baits when fishing the Method. Adding some neat Goo to your hook bait before casting this adds extra attraction, colour and taste, to help yield a quicker bite.
Trimming the edges off a round boilie can sometimes bring a bite.
Pre-tied hooklengths stored in a wallet make sense in the cold days of winter when fingers can turn numb.
When faced with vast open water swims the fish could be anywhere, so have the right hardware to cover all areas of your swim. Adam uses Daiwa Tournament 12ft feeder rod with a 2oz glass tip, a Caldia 4000x reel loaded with 6 lb Guru Drag line.
