Id lead around until i found the firmer areas and then wang out my normal setup. Leadclip, coated hooklink jobby. Ive never found it matters much.

Like someone else said, if they are feeding hard or at all for that matter then the food is in the silt anyway.

If it really bothers you, you could use a heli setup and adjust the top bead accordingly but i could never get on with such an arrangement - plenty do though.

Not keen on the nasty smelling stuff myself.

Hi Danny

In my opinion there are 2 types of silt.
The first would be a build up of decaying matter leaves etc which you're probably experiencing in eastern Europe
The second would be a sand type mixture which you'll usually find closer to dams or narroways.
The best way to find the depth of any kind of silt is to tie 6 inches of white knitting wool to a lead and leave it out in your designated spot for an hour.
The colour of the wool when you reel it in should give you the depth and the type of silt
You can present rigs acordingly
Best

Silt is very forgiving imo, you can chuck almost anything in it and catch.
Watch for signs of feeding. If they're troughing balls deep in the stuff it'll look like a Jacuzzi. If they're just grubbing around gently or feeding on harder areas it'll look more like tench activity, little pin ***** bubbles.
A heli set up is as good as anything, set the top bead to suit the signs of feeding and the drop you get on the cast. Don't be afraid to bury the hookbait if that's where the carp are having it.

You need to look for harder silt.. have a good lead around, you'll know when you find a patch.
