For the casting method I use a stiff leader made of high-quality fluorocarbon.
My favorite leader this season is ? The name of this leader is quite complicated but it’s very easy to make. You will need: high-quality Nihonto Prime 040 – 050 fluorocarbon, a ledger bead with a swivel, a hook aligner, a ring to mount the ‘hair’ and, of course, the right Musa hook (size 4-6). The leader should be 15-18 cm long. You put the hook on the ledger bead and secure it with the hook aligner – you have your ‘hair’ ready. Next, attach it to the shank of the hook and secure with silicone stoppers. Sometimes the silicone stoppers slide down to the bend of the hook during casting, which might make the leader less effective. A good alternative version is to attach the ‘hair’ to the ledger bead with a swivel. You take a ‘hair’ with two loops and a ring, which is attached just right taking into account the length of the hook and the size of the lure, you put it through the hook aligner and mount on the ledger bead.
There are a few different ways of putting bait in the fishery in the casting method. I use a groundbait rocket, and I think most other people do too. The one that I usually use has one flaw – the spring that is supposed to open the rocket breaks. This makes both baiting and pulling the rocket back to the bank harder. An easy way to get out of this situation is to put rubber bands on the quills of the rocket. You put two snaps in holes drilled (using a drill fro protein boilies) in the quills and connect the with a rubber band. This method has been working for me for two seasons! I hope it will work for you too.
