This is my favourite go to rig when fishing through the summer months. It’s most effective when casting to an island margin or any feature out in the pond.
This time of year 2mm pellets seem to work the best with an enhancer liquid which will help to draw the fish down through the water column. Sometimes mixing ground bait with the pellets can really be an edge if the fish are being tricky to catch. I normally use a bright colored Bandum bottom bait or wafter which I think helps the fish pick up my hook quicker especially if the method feeder gets knocked around. I’ve had some really big hits of fish using this method; from Carp, F1’s and Bream, the action can be explosive so remember to loosen your drag!
