I managed to get out last night for 12 hours of angling and I have to say it was actually quite enjoyable!
In typical summer fashion the carp fed in the darkness and up to about 9 am this morning. A scattering of 20mm herb and matching Wafters or deep c Wafters made sure I didnít get much sleep! Biggest fish was a known common of upper 20s (forgot my scales)
If you go out angling this week then Iíd say bait lightly and make the most of the darkness! Roll on next weekend when itís a little bit cooler

Letís just say it has been a bit of a mission to get away from the common pellets but I have some samples that are different gravy.
The supply line is an issue but Iím working on it and itís going well!

As long as they are fresh ones with a date and batch number label.

cereal based? only a few and it leads back to the sustainability argument to be fair.

I mean for example, semolina, soya flour etc are in high demand as well as maize meal in third world countries via charities, Im sure to some seeing it go into baits ( never mind fishmeal) would be appalling.

But there is a glut of decent pellets in the UK now especially as two french companies have now invested, namely aller aqua and le goussant. although to be fair the guy who sells the la guossant also sells cereals lol. you can get it cheaper direct in france and ship it over.

as most would say, smaller levels of quality is key.


BUT when it comes to boilies that in of itself is still a problem for smaller producers, its all well and good upping prices but if you sell less and less it can start to be a problem.

To put it simply tonne sacks are cheaper, and to order sacks and keep product fresh you need to sell a lot of it, multiple tonnes a week, and so selling less buy keeping good quality gear can mean with some products buying in multiples of smaller sacks, which cuts down the margin anyway.

so its make 2 quid a kilo and sell ten kilos or make a quid and sell 20 sort of scenario. it totally depends on capacity / storage / labour costs etc as to which one is beneficial.

Ive just had an email from a courier that the fuel surcharge is going from 8 to 12.5% on carriage which basically adds 50 pences to the p and p charge on a 10kg box.

And much like Gav is finding, multiple price increases a day is a new reality. and Im not sure what his forecasts and projections are but after every few price hikes mine become invalid and its more work to figure out what you need to do to make a living, then some more go up and you repeat. plus there also the head ache of not getting long term price assurances from suppliers anymore due to how the world is, and even after THAT, there is also the issue of actually having product to buy. there will be shortages of a LOT more ingredients come summer, and its all wel land good stock piling but if you like fresh ingredients, you're pretty much f*cked.

Putin is clearly a tigernut man.

Yep, we can only do so much regarding costs of trade or retails supply chain trends and products, but quality costs.

I can almost see some anglers going back to rolling fresh bait/base mix and 4 to 6 or 12 eggs, on the bank.
Like the good old days.
Make it as you need it, if you have a result and have it off, roll more. Minimal waste, and you know it is quality bait.
