    But technically it's not a leader just mono tied with loops in end , but I see your point .

    Stupid rule though ! Allowed leaders on spods though

    ive fished solid bags for years and to get over the issue of wet leads and clips etc i would have a mix of pellet sizes, micro, 2, 4mm and also some trout pellet powder. a quick dry on an old pub beer towel [removing the tail rubber to ensure that little bit of awkward moisture is removed] then dunk into pellet bucket and roll around.
    same with fingers if the hands are damp.

    You don't leave a baited spot out though, do you?
    You're born, you take sh*t. You get out in the world, you take more sh*t. You climb a little higher, you take less sh*t. Till one day you're up in the rarefied atmosphere and you've forgotten what sh*t even looks like. It's just a shame I'm still on the first rung!

    Ah the penny drops. I see. I am not really up to date with the mags anymore so I often miss all these new & novel ways to sell more tackle to the unsuspecting.

    I recon they missed a trick however ..surely even quicker would be to have 4 new rods all setup with identical tackle ready to cast...

    I don't follow a lot of the tv series that try to sell you gimmicks I mainly watch matt Hayes and the like . I only thought a few pre tied bags as what got told in tackle shop and makes life easier but I surpose bites are not fast carp fishing so you have time .

    Don't think I would have both rods on pva bags , other be straight ledger with pellet boile etc over a scattering of bait ... This is where need to learn about marking and spodding

    keep it simple and solid bag both, mixed pellets and 3-4 broken boilies in the bag with a small scattering of boilies. also dont ignore 3-4 bait stringers.

    more important than spodding is using the marker float to suss out where the carp are likely to be. only then is it worth putting some more bait out.

    i wouldnt bother spodding too much of there are many bream roach and tench about as they'll soon mop it up. if getting pestered with nuisance fish then go boilie only with small bags just to get the small handful of bait tight to the rig, a couple of full baits and a few halfs and quarters with a small handful of pellet just to fill the voids so the bags are solid and tight.
    20 boilies per rod is a good starting position and if getting nuisance fish dont be worried about going up to 20mm freebies.
