If you have watched our video we shot with Jamie previously, you will have seen his little trick of using a stot on the hook length to prevent the wafter from ‘wafting’ off the pile of bait. By nailing it in position you will find you get bites far quicker.
Whilst this works, it is a bit fiddly, the shot can ping off or weaken the line, so it seemed sensible to produce a ‘method hookbait’ to Jamie’s exact specification.
The result offers all the benefits of a traditional dumbbell wafter, in that it is super simple to use on both bands or spike and are available in a selection of colours allowing you to mix and match during the session. The key difference being that it sinks, totally getting rid of the need for any shot on the hooklength.
Working with Jamie we settled on one flavour across the range, a beautiful citrus number which smells good enough to eat. This is available in four key colours, a pellet colour for those days you want to match the hatch and then pink, yellow and orange when you are looking for a bright standout hookbait.

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
