We recommend a short, soft braided hook link of around 4” (10cm) long to be used with the Mega Method feeders. A hook link of stiffer material such as coated braid or fluorocarbon has a tendency to loop up when used with the method. As the groundbait or pellet break down, stiffer hook links can actually dislodge the hook bait and almost spring it out of its strategic position on top of the feeder. This particularly applies to counterbalanced hook baits.
So to perfectly complement the feeders we have also launched a range of Mega Method Rigs. Also designed to be used in solid PVA bags, these rigs provide deadly effective presentation and hook holds and combined with the enclosed Extender stops, a wide variety of hook baits can be used.
The overall length of 4” (10cm) is just right for tucking the hook bait back inside the method mix moulded onto the feeder. The super strong, soft Camo Sink Link braid is really inconspicuous and does not loop up or be prone to dislodge the hook bait from the feeder as the bait disperses, an inherent problem with stiffer hook link materials.
The hair lengths have been kept purposely short to accommodate small baits such as artificial buoyant sweetcorn or small boilies and pellets, whilst the Extender Stops allow for the hair to be lengthened and larger baits or combinations of bait to be used.
The loop at the top end of the hook link allows for quick connection and removal from a clip link or swivel, very useful when ‘speed fishing’ on prolific runs waters.
Tied using ESP Curve-Shanx Teflon coated hooks which are super sharp, strong and their shape ensures excellent anti ejection and hook holding properties without the need for shrink tube.
