Agreed people moaning about £8 a kilo for decent bait is stupid but I also understand where your coming from, if it needs to go up even more say £9.50 kilo youíll be pricing yourself out of most peoples options. Everyone will jump on me now saying decent anglers pay for decent bait and all that rubbish but the truth is the average guy wont be able to afford to use you. Doesnít affect me personally Iíve only used your hookbaits. Just my 2 pennies worth

Raise your prices if needed, proper anglers will always pay for decent bait.

People will pay for quality,the people moaning about £8 a kg need to give their head a wobble.

Well done to all of you lads below, some nice fish there!
Iím really pleased with all of the catch reports and our own pages are bulging with nice carp.
It has been awful at work mixing basemix and playing with horrible smelling liquids in this heat but the results are there for all to see.
There is one huge negative today.
The price of two of my most expensive ingredients has now got so out of control that Iím seriously thinking about taking one of my most cherished baits out of the range. The price to make that bait has always been high but now it is getting to the point where the bait will just be too expensive for the U.K. market.
Caseins, whey, minamino have all risen so much in 6 months that I can see an end coming for certain products.
The cruel thing about this is that this boilie has a winter track record unlike any other bait I have made before and itís a favourite of mine and the team.
And to see people on social media Saying that 8 quid a kilo is ridiculous, makes me wonder what the future holds for the bait industry.
And even blooming egg albumin has risen to 300 quid a box!

Just completed a couple of nights as a guest on my mates syndicate which was hard going in the weather but a switch of rig and bait to a sting wafter on one rod and a snowman with a dark sting pop up on the other saw me land 2 fish, an 18.5lb common and a lovely old 31lb 5oz mirror which is one of only 5 30s in the water. These were the only fish out during my session, so another glowing endorsement of the sting

Good news! I think the boilie fishing is really going Up a gear now. Iím away with family this weekend and the catch reports are piling in and a good percentage are being caught on 20mm hard bottom baits!
Herb sold out yet again
Tricknut will also sell out by midweek
I may get the rods out next weekend if this heat pisses off 😂

If any of you lads ordered over the weekend then Iíll apologise now. The bloody couriers never turned up to collect our parcels today and will be coming tomorrow. First time in 16 months that they failed to collect!!

First day back after a week off and it was blooming busy too 😩
