Feeding liquidised hemp
Feeding liquidised hemp can be very effective when roach fishing , in particular, when your are on clear canals, rivers, stillwaters and drains. You’ll need some cooked hemp and a liquidiser.
Step 1 Don’t fill the liquidiser more than about a third full with the hemp, as it can clog things up. Give it a blast on full power for about 20 to 30 seconds
Step 2 It’s important to use a liquidiser with a sharp blade. This will split the shells and give the hemp a good mashing.
Step 3 The result should look like this – a sticky mix of broken shells and liquidised hemp kernels.
Step 4 If you fed the mix like this, it would simply sink to the bottom and create only a shallow cloud over the top.
Step 5 The trick is to add water to the sticky, liquidised hemp. This can be done now, or at the liquidising stage.
This is more like it – now a milky, hempy cloud surrounds all the broken shells.
Step 7 Now, when it’s fed, you get a lingering cloud through all layers of the water with the bigger bits on the bottom. Perfect!
