I bought this for my son who is starting out as an angler, he lives some 130 miles from me so communication is via phone or messenger - not the same as showing by example. Anyway, today he went fishiing at Emerald lakes and foundvthe fish to be a bit preoccupied with spawning. However, right from the off he started getting line bites and quick dips on his float. He set up a polaris rig, not perhaps what i would have recommend for fishing a method ir cage feeder but the activity this method mix triggered helped his confidence and he persisted and eventually caught a good number of carp. He was delughted and put his success down to the method mix. His sort of son fishing nearby failed to get a bite - this perhaps indicates the fish pulling power of your mix. He also loose fed tutti frutti pellets throughout, hinders of course!
Confidence in what you are doing is so important especially when starting out and i am perhaps guilty of persuading him that using the best bait gives an edge. Of course the best bait being hinders - i have used it for many years.
