A dark version of the massively popular Match Method Mix with the benefit that the darker colour can be an advantage when fishing in shallow water or up to features such as islands or far marginal edges as fish can be less wary of dark groundbaits especially in clear water as it allows them to settle and feed.
Designed for use by the modern match angler who wants to fish a flat bed Method Feeder on commercial match fisheries with confidence.
This mix is contains the highest quality crushed pellets and fishmeals and its consistency is such that it stays on the feeder through the cast, the impact with the water and the drop through the water of most commercial venues. Once the Method Feeder hits the bottom it breaks down quickly building up the line and keeping the fish there and competing without over feeding them. Every bag comes with a free Preston Innovations Method Feeder inside. Perfect for all species of coarse fish especially Carp, F1's and Bream.
Andy Findlay (Inventor of the Method Feeder) says "Match Method Dark is a great mix for fishing into shallow water up against islands, it binds well to the ribs of the Method Feeder but it breaks down quickly which gives you the perfect presentation every time. Being a dark colour is ideal as fish will feed more easily over a dark colour in shallow water."
Match Method Mix is simple to mix. Empty the 2kg bag of groundbait into a round mixing bucket, fill a 2 pint maggot tub with water, pour this onto the groundbait and mix thoroughly, then allow it to rest for 30 minutes, during this time the water will be absorbed into the groundbait. Then for best results; to remove any lumps and create an even consistency, pass the groundbait through a riddle and it is ready to use.
When fishing sun and wind may dry the groundbait out a little, to combat this you can cover the mixed groundbait with a damp towel or if it does dry out just add a little more water and mix again.
