I originally developed this product whilst fishing a difficult pit where the carp would follow the bream shoals around after spawning simply gorging themselves on spawn.
It became very difficult to get a take whilst the fish appeared to be preoccupied on spawn so I set about trying to mimic it but at the same time make it stand out much more than the natural spawn already there. After all you could wait a long while to get a take from a cow on a blade of grass couldn’t you?
The result of my experimentations is the Micro Feed.
It has multiple uses, I use it in stick mixes all of the time combined with broken boilie and our Maximum Action Pellets it helps achieve a 3 stage lengthy leak off of attraction as well as giving different visuals.
Micro Feed on its own in PVA mesh is how I fish it at this time of the year when I suspect the carp are preoccupied on Spawn. I want to give a small pocket of spawn and nothing else. to keep it more natural looking. Hook bait I keep very small and light. The Pimple Pops are great for this and I simply aim at a critically balanced bait for this lightly lightly approach.
By wetting your hands you will find you can mould the Micro Feed into a ball which can then be catapulted easily or in turn moulded around a method feeder. Although it will look like a ball of paste after you have done this it soon breaks back down into it’s spawn like appearance again once it enters the water giving a good spread as it bursts apart. Even after 24 hours if the fish haven’t come across your baited spots Micro Feed will still resemble spawn. It doesn’t break down to dust the same as most other feeds.
This really is a favourite product of mine and is an important part of my armoury at all times of the season but for now it really does give you a massive edge when the carp are physically looking for those pockets of spawn.
