Ken, I've always understood tiger nuts should be soaked for a minimum of 24hrs prior to bringing to the boil, does this change whilst using a pressure cooker as you have no soak time in your recipe below.

Hi Ryan. Sorry for the delay in getting back to you...better late than never.

GTPSpice is very coarse with whole hempseed it it. I like to grind it down for a few seconds before using it in stocking mesh. Even ground down there is still an element of up-and-down about the blend, which makes it visually and well as olfactorily attractive,

Ken,
I want to ask a question on base mix.
Fishing a fishmeal oriantated water, and talking to a very good local angler, he has told me fish a good milk and honey base mix bait.
Have looked on line and can’t really find a recipe for a fantastic milk honey base mix. Ken the cost would not be a problem want to make the best base mix, and have a couple of flavours I am going to experiment with.
Always held you in high estimate when it comes to bait making.

Rally look forward to hearing from you, and receiving the best in your opinion milk honey base mix.

Tight lines.

Dave

This is a very quick and easy way of making lots of bait in less time and with less effort. (Not good unless you want to fish the margins, short to medium range, or have a boat or bait boat to hand.)

Hope you like it

@ Bryan: Yes the Euro Mix has been discontinued. However, can I strongly recommend Groats? These played a significant part in the success of the Euro Mix over the years.

Hi Ken,

Have Haiths stopped making the euro mix? I was reading an article of yours and thought that mix would be ideal as it didn’t need boiling, just an overnight soak and it was ready to go

Is there anything similar you’d recommend?

I am not sure what has happened at Haiths during the lockdown. Maybe it is a lack of ingredients that has meant some products have been suspended? I'll try to find out but communications between chez moi and Grimbly are somewhat disjointed at the moment.

By the way, the Blog on Dinner Plates should be uploaded sometime. The Blog so titled (Dinner Plates - Shhh. Keep it Dark) is actually about using light running leads and braid reel line! I have no idea how the title of one Blog has been used as the title of another!!!

There is a school of thought that argues that a single source of attraction is just as effective as a wide array; that attraction is attraction whatever the source. That is a very persuasive argument and has much to commend it. On the other hand there are others (myself among them) that take a belt and braces approach, hence my frequent use of pastes that are heavily (over?)loaded with a wide variety of attractors, as described HERE - scroll down for the recipe.

I have also blogged on the same theme HERE (link).

As I wrote, there is more than one way to skin a cat catch a carp, and if you read some of my other blogs you will see that at time I adopt exactly the approach that you suggest.

Enjoyed this Ken and got me thinking.

In relation to carp specifically searching out a particular food source within a group of food sources i.e. the corn amongst the hemp seed, would it not be beneficial to have as many food signals as possible when baiting up for example, rather than 1 or 2 types of pellet how about 10-15+ of different types, drawing in a variety of carp who may have a liking for one of the specific food items as opposed to just the 1 or 2 types where they may get passed over, basically hedging your bets that one of the types of pellet will be liked even if the others are not? Or am I over thinking way too much about selective feeding patterns?

The same can be done for particles, boilies etc...mulitple combinations over a particular one or 2.

Hope this makes sense.

Peanuts can be infected with a fungus, which produces a poisonous carcinogen called aflatoxin. Since there is no clear scientific evidence of what is a safe level for wild birds, Haith's® buy only peanuts that are declared ''nil detectable aflatoxin'' - the safest standard there is.

More preparation advice to follow soon. Here's a teaser for you!

http://www.haiths.com/peanuts/

I just used something called Google and it revealed that Haits do indeed sell peanuts.
You will find them cheaper elsewhere though! I'd personally make sure they were of a good quality, so it might make sense to just go with Haiths and pay a few extra £.

Whole peanuts need more prep than granules, I'm sure Ken can advise you on prep better than I can, but I'd say 24 hour soak and 15 minute simmer

Not only are they the best in the business, but their workshop is right next door to the Nutrabaits factory, which means they get raw materials fresher than any other company. In addition Haith's are only an hour away so again fresh ingredients are guaranteed.

Not just a cheap substitute like most of the rolling companies are


ive said it before and will say it again


Rollin baits supply genuine baits as they are supposed to be made Essential baits and Nutrabaits only let a few companies to roll there baits because they now the importance of keeping there customers happy with a consistant product

I mention Nutrabaits a great deal in my Blogs as they are an Approved Bait Firm, licensed to sell Haith's products. If you look at their Facebook pages you will note than a great many bait companies from all over Europe are mentioned, as Haith's are always keen to help the bait industry as well as the individual.
