Well, although some of the lock down restrictions are now being lifted, including allowing angling to resume once again, unfortunately I am still stuck at home, being one of the people identified as having to shield due to my underlying health condition. It is, however, allowing me plenty of opportunity to really get prepared for when I can get out on the bank again. Part of the preparation has been making sure of having plenty of hookbaits ready. So following on from my last piece, in which I showed you how to produce your own custom cork-ball pop-ups, I thought this time around I should show you how I produce your own custom cork-dust wafters.
Just like with the cork ball pop ups producing your own, as opposed to the shop bought variety, not only brings a great sense of achievement, but also allows you to be different from everyone else as you can add what you like to give them that personal touch. I want my wafters to match the Carp Company ‘Icelandic Red’ freebies I am putting out, but to also be packed with lots of extra attraction, so they are hopefully picked up quicker by any feeding carp. I rarely use anything other than custom hand rolled specials on my rigs these days and am 100% confident in all my hookbaits.
The below step by step guide should hopefully show you exactly how to produce your own custom cork-dust wafters, and with so much extra time on our hands why not try and give yourself that little edge for next time that you are out on the bank.
