They are so stupidly attractive to all fish.

You have seen with your own eyes the sort of thing that you will not see on any underwater camera set up. Not one's for selling Chinese plastic or cardboard balls. I'll give them all some stuff for their underwater cameras... Trouble is, the cameras would likely never see anything whatsoever, the water would be so clouded up with fish in a complete feeding frenzy. When the sediment settled, the camera would probably be knocked over, and one foot of gravel stripped from the spot. But they would have a lot more big carp for the photographs.

But that will not sell to many brightly coloured cardboard balls, or £50 worth of plastic rig components either will it.

I've been doing really well since the beginning of July on the GBP2 CC's over Bug. Not had a decent nights sleep since using them! Considering the pond hasn't been exactly fishing it's head off, once again everything that swam was having a go the other night, to the point where I had a recast at midnight just to make sure the hookbaits were still on as I've had occasions when the roach and skimmers have been smashing the hookbaits. I even caught a tench on a ball of bare crushed cork, the external coatings had been completely stripped .

Andy said similar too. A few others have said same thing to me last week or so. I have not seen the K2 yet.

That was quite an irregular result Andy had for that lake, to get 7 bites in 24 hours.

We will do exactly the same thing as we did with the Mainline stuff previously mate. We will add a few of our own bits and pieces, and then put them through our curing process five times. They will look and smell the same as the Bug that you know. But they will be very different to a carp.

They are already an incredible freezer bait, going by just the catch results alone. We will turn that, into a hook bait, that the carp cannot not leave alone.

Forum member John (Slim). Got his stuff on the 27th July, after a problem with RM. Today a week later, we got this lovely message back. Well done John.

Hello Andy. I already know exactly what will be happening mate. We will be doing a Bug hook bait at some point. The top photograph, is waiting for me at the Tackle Box. It arrived just before I sodded off to Brazil. It's to work on some Bug hook baits, and see how they react to our process in a physical sense. I have not had a chance to go get it yet. I will likely get it sent over, I have been so busy since I got back. I have been working since 5am, and it's Sunday. I won an absolute fortune this week at Goodwood, as anyone on my personal Faceache knows. The last thing I really want to be doing is working 16 hours on a Sunday... But needs must. If someone came up with a great offer for SHB, right now today.... I'd likely take it, show them the crown jewels and let them go forwards with it all. But that's because it's Sunday, and I don't fancy working every single day for the next six weeks right now .

Our waiting time is around a week, but I am scared to post anything else on the other social medias. Rich, off this forum became our most liked post ever on Faceache with 3.8k likes. That broke the record from the day before, of 3.2k likes of Matt's photo of that London mirror. Things have exploded a bit.

I have the hook bait part of my ramblings ready to post online... I posted a very small part of it on here before. But I cannot do that yet either until things start to calm down a touch. I already know what that is going to do, well in advance. I talk a little bit for the first time about our curing process, which I have never done before. The two boxes in the photos below are smothered in liquified S2. Pink and white S2. It's become fashionable to use hydroslates recently... Liquified foods. Well, we have actually been hydrolysing real food in our own way for 15 - 20 years, via our curing process. You can't do this with cardboard/rubber balls. . The photo of the dead blue bottle flies.... I have spoken about them being attracted by what we do before. They liquify their food before they eat it. They are incredibly attracted by what we achieve with our curing process. Just like the carp, and all other fish.

One of the photos below, is me sitting in someone else's god awful Nash bivvy at Fen Drayton, long before SHB was even a thing. Even back then, I never wanted my photo taken. That's just me. I have always been far to secretive about the hook baits as well. Because right from the very start, every silly sausage has wanted/tried to rip us off everytime I opened my mouth. . We are long past all of that now. Me talking about the hook baits this year, is a good thing. It's time to reveal a bit more to the carp world, about exactly why the magic beans do, exactly what they do. Not all of it obviously, just some of it. But we need to wait until things calm down a touch first before that gets posted. Just like the Bug hook baits. Otherwise, we simply get over run.

Jason of DNA will get some first. We might then end up doing some as specials on here maybe straight away, because we keep constantly getting messages about them ever since I first mentioned them. I also had a good conversation with Geoff Bowers before my holiday, about HydraK maybe being another. I need to speak to Geoff again at some point this week. To many things to do, never enough time.

We are also going to release the Cheese this year. That has been ready to go for nearly two years now. That is epic.

Please, do not message us asking for any of the above. We don't have them. I am likely to completely disappear from online again for a little while. Including from on here. WhatsApp or Text is the way to get hold of us regarding a missing order.

I was so clueless to all of this mate, until I started SHB. We have never discounted anything. We have never had a sale. We never will either. If that means we will lose a small proportion of custom. Oh well.

Our product sells itself, so we do not need to sell it cheap.

Some people will only buy something they perceive as a 'bargain'. They will buy something only on low cost, that something has to be 'discounted'. The product quality itself does not matter to them, as long as it is cheap. The concept of real value is often lost on these people.

I have worked in the food industry for years.... i once had a conversation with a sales person who had worked for all the major retailers.... they termed this type of person a magpie shopper and in essence supermarkets are layed out to catch them. Its why the end of the isles always have the saver deals on them. Ive seen first hand a product that sold for £1 and as a example sold 500 cases a day, same exact product was still sold for £1 and had a bit red sticker saying a £1 on it and the amount sold over doubled... people perceive a bargain.

The supermarkets have finally started to get shopped for it now - they purposefully make it difficult to compare prices of products then use promos to trick people into thinking it cheaper
