The Big Red Carp Fishing Blog
Last month I looked at my choice of the top five particle baits, so let's round off this article by looking at numbers 6-10.
Hi there, and welcome to my look at what I consider to be some of the best particle baits around. In this article I will give you 1-5, and next month 6-10. Let’s kick off with my top five particle baits with tips on how to prepare them and fish them.
To pinch a phrase from a mate of mine: it’s blog time! This month I’m going to run through my spomb/spod mixes; everything that goes into these mixes is tried and tested individually, over many years, but when added together they bring a whole new dimension to fishing with particles. Read on and I’ll explain what I mean by that…
There are many seed blends on the market that all seem to be lumped under the generic heading of particle blend. These are seldom if ever put together with anglers in mind but are in most cases are simply blends that are already in existence in the bird feed market, intended for use as cage and aviary bird foods. Red Band Pigeon Conditioner is a perfect example.
I first got interested in using what we generally call particle baits back in the early 70s when Rod Hutchinson first wrote his definitive series of articles in Angling magazine, and later in his first book.
