    Some of this weed you will inevitably be picking up when you retrieve the rig, so by the time you've swung it to hand it will look a lot worse than it probably is than whilst it's out there. Worth bearing that in mind. But nothing wrong with solid bags and pop ups, stick some crumb and micro pellet soaked in oil to really give the fish a reason to rummage in that weed !

    Chods are perfect for silk weed.
