How to make a tiger nut snowman hookbait
Follow these simple steps to learn how to tie a tiger nut snowman hookbait thanks to Ian Poole

1 To make this hookbait you will need a nut drill and some cork plug.

2 To start with, choose two tiger nuts of roughly the same size like so.

3 Cut a piece of cork equal to the length of one tiger nut as shown here.

4 Drill a quarter to a third out of one tiger – this will be your bottom hookbait.

5 Drill the second three-quarters of the way through – this will be your top nut.

6 Drill the second three-quarters of the way through – this will be your top nut.

7 Push the other nut over the cork plug and the hookbait is now ready to use.

8 This is how a normal balanced double tiger nut hookbait would sit.

9 Ian’s tweaked version sits upright like a snowman hookbait. Perfect!
