Solid PVA bags are excellent for getting a wide verity of baits and liquids out into the swim with your hook bait. However, when fishing at range, PVA bags can be problematic. The first problem is making a solid bag tight and aerodynamic such that it flies straight and true. The second is ensuring the bag is strong enough to withstand the cast and landing in the water as well as melting quickly enough once on the lake bed. The Fishing Bag Company makes a PVA distance bag that overcomes all of these problems. Lets have a look at how to use PVA distance bags.
What you need
Three sizes of bags are available. Here we have the small and medium size conical distance bags. Notice the card liner in the bag – this helps support and hold the bag open whilst we are loading the bag with our bait in this case pellets.
With the top of the distance bag fully sealed and the bag nice and tight, bring your hook up to the side of the bag and nick the rig into it.
All that’s left to do is to cast this effective rig into the horizon to those unsuspecting carp.
