BALANCE IS CRITICAL!

Another little tweak that I find works well is having a large blob of putty or a tungsten sinker near the hook on the hooklink. This creates a kind of hinge where the wafter is lifting the hook slightly, but the sinker (or putty) is just holding it back.
If you prefer the hookbait close to the hook a good way of adding a little weight to wafter that will also add some movement is to pull the hookbait onto a micro rig swivel using bait floss. Simply trim and blob the floss to secure the wafter.
