I suppose sweet corn is biodegradable but it doesn’t really stay on the hook for long so I thought I would improve on nature and use some biodegradable plastic to make some fake baits.  Fake baits are nothing new but very few of them will actually break down over time or could be considered harmless should a fish actually make off with them, leaving the hook behind. Polymorph is a low melt plastic that is easy to work with just requiring a cup of hot water to shape and when cooled its as tough as old boots, maybe tougher.

Using it with a method feeder means you could probably fish a whole session without changing your hook bait, and as I am a lazy old git it works well for me.
