  • PVA bags...

    Hi all,
    How do you guys set up your bags for casting out?
    I tend to make little bags and just hook them up. I've tried putting the lead and hook in the bag but I'm paranoid that the leads sitting on the hook or the rig just isn't sitting right! I guess it's just a confidence thing.
    What do you guys do? Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Chris.

    Lick and stick matey.. depending on how far your casting.. if i was going for a big chuck i would probably use small sticks or a big bag with everything in it like a cricket ball.. big shock leader though to avoid crack off's..

    I have though used them on the canal in Cheshire by placing big tunnel pva bags in the track with copious amounts of pellets and chopped tigers

    all depends on what your using and how far you are casting

      stick 2 peices of pva nugget on your hook before putting it in the bag, then get it all in there, if you use lead clips for attaching your leads then use the top one to wrap the top of bag around after licking it, keep rolling it round until it sticks to the lead clip... If you get it right it will be more than strong enough for a big chuck.. May take a bit of practice to get it spot on, but its a lot easier than messing with pva string and the like..

      Alternatively move over to pva mesh, then use it in short sticks and thread them onto your hooklength and use em to keep everything nice and straight.. by popping your hook into the bottom of it..

          Unless ive got a good reason not to i tend to stick with mesh,i find bags too fiddly and you can make up plenty of sticks in advance,heres a few we use.

            Hurricane, where is your hook in the 2nd photo?? I have never used PVA, something I will have to try in time. Just can't work out where your hook is.... :P

              Just above the boillie mate,its masked with a piece of pva foam to keep the hook clear of bottom debri.

                  Ahhh OK, makes sense. Good idea as well. I shall one day play with this PVA stuff...... Might even give it a whirl this weekend. Something else I will have to read up on :P

                    Solid bags do have thier uses but mesh is far more versatile and cheaper.

                        Thanks for the replies guys!
                        I'm gonna try the mesh I think cause I only make the bags for putting on the hook rather than putting the hook and lead inside the bag.
                        Hurricane you make the mesh bags look alot neater too!

                          It is very simple mate,thats the basis of all my fishing,at the end of the day its a feeder rig that melts in water,ive seen loads of variations and they all have thier uses but at the end of the day i catch my fair share of fish on the most basic of rigs,set ups and for that matter tackle,but 1 bit of kit i would not like to be without is pva mesh its so vesatile for so many methods and styles of fishing,(try to catapult mixers at 50 yds) get some you wont be sorry.

                            Sorry to bother you again hurricane... So in your pictures, that is all mesh? Not PVA bags? Just sort of mesh bags you have made up? Or I think you call them sticks? Also you do have PVA foam for your hook. So if I went into the tackle shop tonight, to make up the setup you have there. I would just need some PVA mesh and some foam? Not PVA bags? Thanks in advance.

                              Hi BarrieG,
                              The PVA bags look like small freezer bags and the PVA mesh looks like stockings! (the mesh is what's in Hurricanes pictures)
                              Hope this helps.
