USING a pole pot puts groundbait and free offerings inch perfectly at the length of pole you choose to fish.

Tight feeding like this nearly always brings better results.

A decent sized pole cup is essential gear for depositing larger quantities of bait less frequently (requiring its own top kit), while smaller pole pots are often lethal for regularly dribbling smaller helpings around the float.

The latter can be installed on the actual top kit you are fishing with.
