Thatís a shame I will need some bait for the lakes soon, was hoping to try and use the same bait for both Carp and Barbel this year.

I'm happy to pay for some to try on a modestly stocked lake in France at the end of April if you are looking for more testers in a range of circumstances 😁

I am hoping that it will be this summer. It has worked in the cold which was my biggest worry and the whole reason I wanted the new bait was for my own winter fishing (selfish huh 😂
Nutriplex was awesome in the cold but the fact that is more expensive (milk content) is what holds people back.
We as a company need another boilie like the herb and Tricknut if we are to move forward so Iím working hard on this one.
I have had to strike certain deals with two big bait companies to find certain ingredients that I canít get anywhere else but that has now been sorted through my friends in the industry.
Also Iím working with some new ingredients that I havenít used before and I need to check how they perform when you feed small or high volumes and that takes time.
On paper itís incredible, but as we know, that isnít always good enough.
Itís high in protein, tastes lovely, has some very new things inside and itís working so far.
Boilie season isnít far away now!

Yes I am thinking the new squid bait might be a good Barbel bait to use?

Hello mate, it is no secret that we at handcraft have close ties to Martin and solar seeing as Pidge rolled them for him for decades!
Yes we had kept back a healthy supply of koi rearer that is very precious to us but it was always blended with modern squid flavours that we have had produced. There are some lovely things in those pop ups and Wafters hence why they are on our catch reports nearly every day.
God knows how many go out in an average week! I am actually sick of the smell of squid and squid additives as it makes everything stink but it is no secret how effective it is mixed up with nice powders and liquids.
The new bait we have been working on since last year has taken these concepts one stage further and we already know it is going to be one hell of a fish catcher.

The 20mm squid Wafters were popular
Requests for sting 20mm Wafters flooded in and deep c is right up there with the two big sellers now so I donít see why not!!
