Get your normal pellet mate without paying out your nose for the brand.

All the firms do is buy the same pellet, spread it out on a flat surface and really lightly spray it (using a fence sprayer type setup) with watered down glug, let it dry and repeat the process. Then get the average punter to pay through the nose for it.

You can do it on the same scale if you want the pellet smelling the same as you bait - just get yourself a small gardening spray bottle and thin down a bottle of glug that you want to use, add some other bits and bobs if you want.

Just make sure you spread the pellet out on a wide surface to let it dry properly, this is usually done in a heated environment but a warm room (or sun) will suffice.

Save yourself a fortune.

Be aware that pellets usually only have a 6 month best before from date of manufacture, so might not be at their best if using later in the season.

Buy your pellets now before they move. I heard April time, but how true that is I donít know. I think many Companies will buy them up in the next few weeks

I know this is probably a stupid question but it sounds like if anyone would know it might be you, any ideas when they plan on moving over there, ie. when should I make sure Iíve got the pellets I want for the year.

I used a few sacks of THESE last year, very impressed. They hold their shape in the water and I had a few lumps using them.

that is the question i am looking into. Skretting are still confident in the transition over the water but i guess the first order will be interesting. The league time for pellets has always been a major issue for me. we sell so many during the season and getting them replaced every time we need them has always been an issue. I wish i had a giant pellet machine!!

Are there going to be any uk based pellet manufacturers that will step up to take over at a more reasonable price (if skrettings do become much more expensive)

Yes all pellets are about to go up I just donít know when and by how much. Skretting biggest uk buyer pulled the plug last year. The skretting trout elite have been very consistent last year (I feed them to my fish) and they are better in my opinion (in warm water not winter time) than carp pellet
I use the carp pellet and feed carp pellet from about November through til April due to the lower oil content but I keep a close eye on each batch because my match team are very fussy about how the carp pellets work and take on water etc.

Thanks I thought they had changed, such a shame the fish loved those pellets. Are the elite the same as they were, and for those that use them, are they good ?

Skretting changed the recipe in royal horizons last year. They were one of the best pellets I have ever used. Basically they now have less oil to keep the trout farmers happy which is what the pellet is actually designed for in the first place.
Skretting carp pellets definitely change in batches. We sold tons and tons last year and they changed at least twice. Letís see what happens this year now that skretting is moving back to France

Potentially a bad batch then. Or a mix up with packaging. I normally use the elite pellet when I use skretting. But I buy mine from a feed store so I can check dates, etc on the packaging.
