So I finally got out last week and tried the 2-2-1 method - Managed to catch 4 nice carp, 3 commons and a mirror. All high singles / low doubles.
Although the mix didn’t fail me I’m not sure I perfected it. A lot of the time it stuck inside the mould and fell off in long sticky strips, so I reverted to putting it on the feeder with my hands. I can only guess I used too much water? Although I followed the 2-2-1 recipe exactly. Maybe where I’m using 1mm micros less water is needed. I’m hoping to go out again this Friday, I’m going to try 2-1-1 instead, so 2x 1mm micros / 1x Groundbait / 1x Water - See if that creates a bait that moulds better
