Thread: method feeding

  1. #1
    Tom Butler Guest


    I have been fishing for about 2 years and i always find method feeding the hardest.I have been told that if the tip of my rod bends i should strike and others say that i should wait for the rod to just go. if any one can give me more advice please e-mail me.

    I would suggest the worst thing in the world to do when fishing 'the method' is to watch the tip.
    The whole idea of this style of fishing is to create a competitive feeding situation in a very small area. This will lead to fish grabbing at the feeder to dislodge the bait(that's why the mix needs to be very stiff) causing violent rod tip action. When a carp eventually grabs the bait it should hook itself and then you should see the indicators fly. My advise would be to not watch the tips as this can cause you to become agitated and end up striking prematurely.

    Carp Angler,
    The best advice i`ve heard in ages.The amount of people who do not wait long enough before the strike is enormous.The weight,and the use of a short hook lenght will do the job for you.Believe me Tom,you will know when the carp has hooked itself,so sit back,chill out,and wait for your reels to burst into action.

    Easier maybe is to click on 'search' type in carp column, and click the search button. Rik's Method article is the middle one of the three listed.

    Thanks to carp angler / graham, i have looked at the article "THE MATHOD".
    I have been using the METHOD for over 3 years now and with great success, winning 5 of 7 comps on it last year with my club.
    The mix that i use is :
    2x VAN DEN EYNDE method mix (I perfer the red mix).
    1 bag brown crumb.
    crushed trout pellets.
    baby milk powder.
    Sensas pellets.
    I mix this all up about 5 days before going fishing and place in a bucket with a lid. this gives it time to start fermenting which i find helps.mix it on the dry side as it will sweat in the bucket.In the winter i have used this but i sieve the van dan method mix taking the large bits of food out and use crushed hemp and sweetcorn.
    If anyone trys this mix please let me know how you get on.
