    Just a quick question, which hooks do most use for fishing the method with maggot hook bait? I fish commercials for match carp & sometimes slightly larger.
    I’d use Tubertini 175’s but they seem to get blunt using maggot! Is it me?
    Regards Peter.

    like circle method hooks except for dead mag since the effectiveness of the circle surely is ‘tied’ to the hair presentation- which you’re not usually doing with one or two dead reds?
    therefore, b911’s or the guru p/wag hook or even lighter normal hooks seem more direct.

    I tried QM1’s (size 16) & found difficulty in penetrating the maggot skin. I caught but again had trouble unhooking. I changed to a Drennan Wide Gape Specialist & they suited me fine, so i’ll stick with those. Thanks for the replies.
    Regards Peter.
