How to rig the Combo "Bomb"

Rigging Trace Combo to the reel line.

Tie the line from the trace to the line from the reel using a "Uni Knot" (You can google this knot to get various techniques to tie.)

Hook rigging: Alternately thread 2 / 3 mielie kernels and oozing floats on each hook * Choose your own flavour combo, you never know what the fish are going to be interested in... 

Bomb/weight rigging: Take a small palm full of the ground mielie feed and mix with some water and a few drops of the flavoured dip mix up into a relatively solid paste. Then cup the pasted around the mushroom weight until the weight is all covered. Then you all set to cast.

Tips for mielie weight bomb:  Be careful not to make it bomb too big as it may break up while casting. If your bomb paste is too wet it will slip off the mushroom weight while casting, if your bomb paste is too dry it will come apart and fly off the weight while casting. (There is quite a bit of trial and error here... but this is part of the fun of this type of fishing technique)
