The Big Red Carp Fishing Blog
I am an avid watcher of carp in the wild. In fact, I like climbing trees or parting bushes to look in on carp almost as much as I do fishing from them.
Alternatively: Hello! Hope you all had a great Christmas. I know we did! Can I wish you all a Happy New Year and great success in 2020. I hope you catch the carp of your dreams!
We are proud and honoured to have so many of the World's major bait firms as customers and all the top names in the bait trade use at least one of our products (in fact it is usually half a dozen or more). Our flagship product, one that identifies us, is Robin Red - if Carlsberg did carp bait!
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.'
There has been considerable interest in the new Robins since their release, and one of the main queries we have been receiving relates to how they interact with proprietary base mixes that currently have ROBIN RED® in them. Well if you read last month’s article you will note that we included a photo of the Nutrabaits base mix Enervite. This normally is blended with Robin Red, but in an experiment the company made up several kilos of Enervite, substituting the Robin Red for each of the three new Robins.
