Brilliant. Thanks pal. I do find videos incredibly helpful, if shot and edited correctly. Itíll make everyoneís answers a lot clearer after Iíve seen someone make it up. Half the battle is knowing which components work together.

Thanks as always for everyoneís input.

This is what I do. Everyone has there own ways I guess.

1. Fill bag quarter full.
2. Rig in bag. Lead sitting next to pva bag
3. Fill 3/4 with bait.
4. Puncture with small hole centre of bag. Feed stem through hole.
5. Lick down with saliva.
6. Pinch 4 corners with fingers and lick down.
7. Pierce bag with baiting needle.
8. Using syringe pump bag with chosen liquid. Needle optional.
9. Bombs away.

Great thing with bag fishing is right 100% tangle free!

I always make up a load of PVA bags before I go using bag stems. There are a few companies out there that do them now, Gemini tackle do some good ones that might be worth a look. Just get an inline lead, simply take the insert out of the lead and slip it onto the bag stem. Easiest things to work with, just loop to loop onto the mainline and good to go

I found the avid stems exceptionally poor quality with many having the eye loop near enough fully closed.

I now use around a 6inch lead free leader drop off style into a solid bag. I have a ait tight tuppawear tub and keep 6 pre tied bags at all times and 6 small mesh bags. The tub hold these and about a kilo of mixed mini pellets.

I always have a dozen or so pre tied, a mixture of the bag stems and 4 inch leaders, as previously stated, a simple loop to loop knot and you ready to get them out as soon as you arrive. This is a good way to try for an early fish whilst you get everything else sorted. You can cast them pretty much anywhere and know the presentation of the bait will be good. Keep the rigs short, between 3 and 4 inches.

As #3 said the stems are good.

Can tie up a rig with in line lead set up and use the stem to replace the inner sleeve. This allows for loop to looping onto your Mainline

leaders make the pva bag so much easier but if theres a ban you can do as stated below , loop to loop or many companies are selling bag stems which you just tie onto your mainline.

i do not often use PVA bags, but i have always used a short length of leadcore/leadfree leader material to attach the pre-tied bags. Even if there is a leader ban or leadcore ban, you are only using maybe 8 inches just to attach to your mainline so it would not be an issue

Simply leave a short length poking out of the top of the bag once tied and connect loop to loop from leader to mainline

Apologies if this has already been asked. Couldnít find any threads from searching for this particular question.

Iíd like to get into the habit of preparing between 3 - half dozen of pva bags made up. Iím struggling to find any tutorials (ideally videos) on how to.. mainly the mechanism that hangs out of the bag, how and what to use to connect to the lead section before sticking out the end of the bag. And then the components used to then connect to the mainline.

NB: Iím getting back into fishing after 10year out, so some tips/explanation would be great.

As always, greatly appreciate any advice/replies. TIA.
