The Big Red Carp Fishing Blog
I have always tended to use boilies in my fishing as a whole and only really dabbled occasionally with particle hook baits; that was until a couple of seasons ago.
A few small tweaks to try and get the edge needed to unlock what has been a very difficult water producing no more than a handful of carp since the last week in October. This needs to be small but effective as I didn't want the carp getting preoccupied from over baiting the swim.
Many anglers rub their hands on hearing a gale forecast, but I believe that 'big winds invariably bring good fishing' is something of an old wives tale.
A good angler never misses an opportunity to observe the water and the carp therein, as he knows he will not be successful if he spends most of his time camping and sleeping.
In the past I wrote a short piece on here about using glycerin - aka glycerol - to help preserve a batch of bait with photos showing some treated high attract hookbaits which I glugged in Glycerin on the 20th November 2015.
