Hello all, I've been away to Brazil again for the past two weeks on a last minute impromptu holiday (paid for by Ladbrokes). If you are waiting for an order from the last two weeks, it is going out in the next couple of days.

I've been having the odd look on here as a guest from my mobile, I can't log into the forum from my phone... My password is saved on my Mac, but not on my mobile and I cannot remember the log in.. Jeez it really kicked off whilst I was away... I see poor Josh got banned. A bit of a shame that is, I thought he was a stalwart of this forum in the short time that I have been a member and an all around good egg. To be honest, when we launched out Garlic hook baits earlier this year, I got into a fair few tangles with the same crew, all from another forum who turned up en masse. The same crew all seem to be connected to a certain liquid sold by Dean and Pete. I have nothing against Dean or Pete, and wished them both well with their new product and still do now. But some of their scientific based followers from that other forum, got stuck right into us about our GPB1 when it was launched. Many threads were deleted, because I will admit I took offence at the same gang having a slight agenda. In the end I just answered them with photos of big UK carp because I could not be bothered. I personally think it's very unfair that Josh was banned. I could not see that he did much wrong. It would seem that while I was away, most of the folks who were very vocal about our products, are all from the same 'other' forum, and all wrapped up in this E liquid now. I would never dream of going and questioning them on that thread, like they did me repeatedly. Have no need. We do not have any 'team', or need anyone to come fight our battles for us on here, or anywhere else. It's a shame that it kicked off so much whilst I was away, and a big shame that Josh got banned because of it. Why can't everyone just get along eh? We all love the same thing, carp fishing. I'll say it again, I have nothing against Dean or Pete, and hope their business does well for them. I repeatedly said on here Pete should be un banned. But some of their followers need to calm down just a touch. They talk like they are quoting the gospel most of the time, with very little to back it up results wise. Talk is cheap...

I wanted to post this a week ago, when it all seemed to be kicking off, but could only access the forum as a guest from Brazil. I am not a MOD, so it is not up to me who gets banned or not. I got back to England this morning. So I've said it now, a week to late

There has been some incredible fish caught on our hook baits while I was away, now I am back I can share some photographs on here.

Hello Phil.

You are very much best off, starting again from scratch mate. You can make up a solution and try to work the egg alb into your paste... But it's not going to be as good as it could be mate. Get some base mix powder from your supplier. The paste you have will not be sieved, it may well have a bit of preservative in there to, and the whole egg will have been used (if it's real egg). Start again Phil.

Sieve the base mix you get through a fine sieve, to remove the larger bits. Depending on what your mix is, fish meal or nut etc, will determine how much egg alb you should add. Approximately 5-1 is a good starting point. So 5 spoons of base mix to one spoonful of egg alb. Mix that up in a bowl. Soak whatever cork balls you are going to use in egg white for a couple of hours, then dust with egg alb and allow to go tacky. This will weld your paste to the cork ball when you start rolling them. Only use the egg whites to make your paste, dispose of the yolk. Once you have made your paste, pop it into a bag and leave it on the side for an hour tightly sealed up.

When you boil them, bring the water to the boil, then knock it off the boil before you put the cork balls into the water. You are most likely to 'mess' them up at the boiling stage, when you first start, it's very easy to over cook them and pop the paste from the cork. 15-20 secs in water that is approximately 90-95 is perfect. As soon as the water stops bubbling, pop them in. Keep them rolling in the water, it's easiest to use a chip pan insert or similar to do this.

Job is a good un Phil.

Cheeky question for Mark - (or anyone else who can help for that matter )

I need some advice - I do own some of your baits so please don't think I'm just punishing you for information haha!

I have some paste that matches the boilies I'm using this year - how can I use this past to make corkball pop ups?

A couple of folk on here have said about egg albumin and whey gel - but further reading leads me to think that these ingredients need to be added at the dry stage - can I knead it into my paste?

Cheers

Brace of 40's for Ken today. The fourth time he has caught this big linear on an S2, over the past two and a half years.

Yes mate, but not yet. We have been very taken aback by the demand for the garlic this Summer... We are in a great place at the moment though and cooking on gas... I must not muck that up! Yesterdays and todays orders, have just gone out for delivery.... Next day service for those who ordered this morning. .

We will be moving to much larger premises this winter... Then the liquid cures will come too.

Hi Greg. Neither are being put onto the website mate. Both will be available second half of September, as special orders. We are in a much better place with our waiting time, since we narrowed our range. For the past couple of months despite being incredibly busy, every order is going out within a week. We'd like to keep it this way.

The hard coated F1, 16mm white crushed cork pop ups & 13mm balanced bottom baits. A pre digested fishmeal/GLM version of the Garlic will be available in 16mm crushed cork pop ups, plus 16mm & 13mm balanced bottom baits. A white S3 crushed cork in 16mm & 13mm CC pop ups, plus balanced bottom baits in the same sizes.

We have done very large batches of all of these hook baits above, they will be sold on a first come, first served basis during September. When they are gone, they are gone, until next time.
