GET BITES FOR DAYS – QUICK-BITE STICKS
Stick fishing seems to be somewhat of a forgotten art these days, but in these times of day-only fishing, when using a small, high-attract parcel of bait is the order of the day in an effort to tempt a quick bite, it is an absolutely deadly method!
In episode #01 of Day Tripper, Cal Gutteridge opted for a high-attract stick and hookbait combination to try and get a few bites on a partly iced-over Willow Park in Aldershot.
In this step-by-step guide, we detail how he put his mixture together.
Step 4. Scoop up a small amount of the finished mixture with the funnel and compress it using a plunger tool. The compressed mixture should ideally be about an inch in diameter.
Step 5. Tie off the stick and it is ready to go! The beauty of this system is you can make up a number of sticks in advance.
Step 8. Now attach the stick to the rig. You can either thread it down the hooklink or, for ease, just hook it on as you would a normal mesh bag.
Step 9. Cast it out and sit back safe in the knowledge you have a well-presented hookbait sitting amongst a small parcel of attraction.
