Well, just sat down to drink a cold cider after what has been a very busy winter period (long may it continue)
I think the tricknut will be popular next year judging by what people (and you guys) have said so far.
Bait making seems to cause so much bitterness at times on the forum.
My advice to anyone is to buy a little bit of any bait that you are interested in (and I donít just mean handcraft) then use that over several sessions to see how the results go. Also if you do not have any idea if a bait is good or bad or have no understanding of bait then show it to someone who perhaps does. Always dip a finger in before going balls deep with a 100k order. One of the things that sticks in my mind this year is customers who tried us for the first time after sitting on 50-100k of bait they got in a deal that they didnít do very well with. Let the results do the talking.
And for all of those who come to the forum to stir or cause trouble. ÖÖ. Keep your nose clean and do things properly and repeat custom will come!
Everyone has a personal view on other brands, but if their bait is crap then folk will soon work that out. I donít see Mike Willmott on here defending himself cos he doesnít need to!!
If you canít be anything else then just be nice!!
Iíll write a book on what I know goes on behind the scenes one day 😂😂😂😂 that will be a good book!!

That sting has served me so well. The trouble is now that I have so many brilliant little products in my box that Iím not sure which one I want to cast out! It is also easy to see that the very venues which were proving tricky with bright hookbaits in the summer are now producing the goods on them again. The sting is still our biggest seller!

The Sting wafter saved me a blank this weekend. Moved to another lake on site for a few hours after struggling for a night in the main lake and managed to nick a bite and had a pretty mid double. Nothing special but any carp is welcome this time of year and the Sting seems to work everywhere I've tried it so far

I very much doubt that you will be stealing any of gav's customers. Handcraft is doing some really great things

I thought id put the name up. I looked it up because people were asking. A simple facebook search was all that it took
