    I have never used paste, how do go on keeping it on the hook in the river at this time of year? (my local the Weaver is very high and quite fast at the mo)

  2. Hi Simon, the consistency of this paste is such that it will usually stay on the hook as long as you don't over do the cast. Then again you could put it in a feeder which should see it get out there ok. Some pastes break down when in the water but I've left this paste out there in my local river for some long spells and it comes in a bit paler. If you were still uncertain Korum make bait coils and screws which can be attached either on a hair rig or threaded down on to the shank of the hook. I'm waiting for my local river to go down a bit too. It's a good colour but probably 2 feet to high!

    Hi Paul , Roughly what size of a cheeseball would you hook up and what would be preferred hook size for Chub as ive never fished for this species before ?? Cheers

    Hi, it depends what size Chub you'll be fishing for. They are very greedy fish and I've taken them on size 6 hooks. Generally speaking I would use a piece of paste starting off at Pea size on a wide gape size 12 or 14 hook, but if I went up to a dice size piece I would use a size 10 or 8 hook. Also when fishing on the river, it can help if you use sinking putting along your hooklength, this will keep you hook bait down on the bottom where the Chub tend to hang around, especially in the colder months.

    Hi, cheese and cheese paste is a very good bait for carp, especially in the winter. Cheese use to be a common bait for carp before the rise of pellets and other pastes.
