We hadnít planned on it as thatís a bit small and niche but anything is possible. We can roll anything into a pop up. Any powder or liquids,
So a hard hooker is very straight forward
Itís just fitting it all these things in

Great news lads!! Itís gonna be fish frenzy soon (every day is a frenzy at the moment) but the catch reports are constant which is a good sign!
The only problem i have is Iím becoming an insomniac again as my mind is full of ideas and things I need to do!

I echo previous posts regarding the efficient service from Handcraft. The herb has already been good to me and my mates this year, and next week will be the first time weíve taken it to France. Keep up the good work Gav you hero! 💪👌

The barbel boys have kept us busy this week 😂
It has become very popular with the river boys and I have high hopes for the opening week! Itís a race to see who will send in the first double and from what part of the country it comes from!

Better off soaking in another more attractive liquid. Thatís one of the positives about our little pop ups, they will take on some nice things and still float. Betaine solution, minamino, squid sauceÖ..world is your oyster 😉
The carp will find your hookbait easily. Last summer I was catching lots from a silty spot on herb 15mm Wafters. They were bulk standard off the shelf Wafters, fished in silt that stained them grey but it was a productive spot for a few weeks. Even the lead and leader smelt awful but for some reason it was a good place to get a bite from. Not my first choice ideally but thatís where they were.
There has been a U.K. 51 sent in today that was caught on a single quid 12mm pop up on a chod over thick silt. Itís visual, itís made from powders, hydros, flavours and the carp love them! But let me be clear here, the baits do everything I ask them to do but we as anglers need to get them into the right location every day! No hookbait will drag them from 20 acres away!

Wouldn't pre soaking them in lake water help prevent them taking on the fowl smelling stuff?
