    Default Cone method

    Gaz, take 50% 6mm pellets and 50% 3mm pellets (i use swim stim green) and soak them the night before. 4mins for the 6mm and 2mins for the 3mm.
    Drain off all the water and place the pellets in a plastic bag and tie the bag off ensuring you trap some air in the bag. Place the bag in the fridge overnight.
    To make the cone i use the off cut from a preston green winder bung.
    Set your rod up with just a snap link at the end. Tie your hook link i find about a 12" length to be right with a loop to attach it into the snap link.
    Bait wise i use double hair rigged corn.
    Firmly press the dampend pellets into the cone, then using a baiting needle push it in from the narrow end, pull through your hook link and bury your hook into the fat end of the cone.
    Remove the plastic cone, attach your lead first 1.5oz min and then your hook link.
    Cast out and hope for the best.
    Works well on resies.
    Hope this helps

    I did a write up for those who arnt sure on how it works heres a few pictures to help desribe it

    Tools needed

    Micro pellets
    Sweetcorn
    Long baiting needle
    Hooks
    Line
    Large nozzle
    Hacksaw
    Korum quick change beads

    First off we need to get the pellets to the right consistency which i'm not sure how to do properly myself but i added water to the pellets, drained it all off and the left for 15 minutes, seemed to work ok, pellets went fairly stickey and when they were compressed in the cone they went solid

    Next job, cut down the nozzle to the required size, smaller the section, less feed, so keep it fairly small unless you feel the carp are looking for feed



    Tie a hair rig up or use the pretied ones like are in the pictues, personnaly i would tie them up using the knotless knot and a decent eyed hook rather than these rubbish things i had laying about.

    When the pellets are ready, see how many you can ram into the cone, press them in as hard as you can, harder the better, should look like this when compressed into cone



    Then push the cone out from the thin end, like a sandcastle 8-)like this



    Push the baiting needle through the cone,and hook onto the loop like this :



    Pull back through :



    Pull all the way down to the ready waiting baited hook, dont pull the hook all the way into the cone as the cast will do this and if you dont want the point of the hook to be too far into the cone as it will be masked, summat like this will do



    Comparison to a medium sized grounbait feeder, lead in the pic, is a 1/4 oz (7gram)



    Tie you rig up as you would normally for fishing the lead and tie the korum quick change bead onto it, then the hooklength can be taken on off quicker and you can even have spare hooklengths ready on your tray to simply clip on to maximise time in the water.

    Quick change bead :



    Thats it! easy innit :P

    Ps, I used cut down yellow clothes pegs for the sweetcorn, as i wasnt opening a tin just to use for these pics, but you get the idea!

    I used the method today as an alternative to the t-bag, worked ok. I think it was andy finlay who invented it he has made a video about using it in conjunction with dave hall. I used his 4mm feed pellet soaked for 4 mins left for 15 mins befor use.
