The Big Red Carp Fishing Blog
As I have detailed before in these carp fishing blogs, you can increase the shelf life of the carp baits we made in part 1, by using Glycerin. At the same time, you can boost the flavour attraction by adding your preferred flavour to the Glycerin itself.
There's a NEW Robin Red® (UK/EU) from Haith's which contains a natural colourant rather than a non-feed-permitted synthetic dye. It creates a less vivid but more natural red colour in finished baits which contain it when compared to the original Robin Red® which remains available for hook baits and 'lures.'
I have recently returned from a somewhat chastening experience at Carp Quarry's lake in France, where I blanked (lost three but that doesn't count!). I say 'chastening' as I was quietly confident about my chances prior to the trip due to my prior experience of fishing deep lakes.
I just want to reprise a previous Blog I wrote about fishing small commercial venues, as it seems from my inbox that there are still quite a few anglers out there who need more answers.
OK…I know it's now May, but this Blog was started in April but I only managed to finish it today…I DO actually go fishing, too, you know!
I will be the first to admit that I turn into a bit of a hedgehog as far as carp fishing is concerned: I hibernate through the winter months only to be rejuvenated by the arrival of spring. So here we are in April and once again I am hard at work making preparations for the coming months.
