Top Tip For The Spring

I always like to be prepared and have my pva mesh bag’s made up and soaked, all ready for my Spring campaign.  I have found a very easy way to do this without to much mess,  I prepare the bags before I soak them – instead of soaking the pellets with the oil first.


I very much like Bait-Tech Spod & Pva micro pellets, as you would not wish to over feed the fish at this time of the year, as it all about attraction.

I then start making up the Godman Angling mesh bags in various sizes, to combat all my fishing situations.


The one’s the bucket are full.


I then add the Oil of my choice.



Any of these are just perfect to get the liquid evenly distributed.  I first put a handful in another bucket and some oil a put the lid back on and shack well.


Repeat the process, until the bucket is full and add more oil if needed.


Once full, leave to soak of a couple of weeks.


And they just look perfect, with the oil soaked into the pva and pellets.

Hope this helps

About richardhandel

I would like to give a brief snap shot of my life and introduce myself; My name is Richard Handel and was born in 1965 in Suffolk. I have worked as a UK Operation & Intermodule Manager for a shipping company. I live in Hampshire now and am married with 2 young children, both girls so I am a bit outnumbered even the cat is a girl! I have been fishing since I was about 7 years old. I started on small local rivers in Suffolk, then moved onto gravel pits and then carp fishing. My personal best is a 39.08 mirror, over recent years I have started river fishing again, on the Hampshire Avon, this is a nice break from the carp lakes. My life has turned a big corner this year, the company I was working for relocated their Operation centre to Estonia. I was offered a job at the head office in London. This would have meant a 5 day commute and working in Stratford. As a family, we did not fancy this, as I would hardly spend any time with the children (and the Mrs). So after 22.5 years, I was given a nice redundancy package and with my wife is working full time. I became the house husband. This has meant a complete turn around in my fishing, as I can pick and choose when I go. I have found a splendid new syndicate to fish this year, which includes 5 lakes and some 8 miles of river with only 150 members. It's an amazing change to the way I am able to fish. I am now trying to start my own tackle business and make a bit of a name for myself in the world of fishing, as I have retired from real work. Richard
