The Big Red Carp Fishing Blog
There has been considerable interest in the bait world over the announcement by Haith’s SuperCatch that three new ‘Robins’ would be added to the range of carp bait additives to supplement their flagship product ROBIN RED ® . The idea behind these new ingredients is to allow bait makers to utilise much of the attraction of the original product, Robin Red, without the subsequent – possibly unwanted – consequence of having the bait finish up a deep red colour. Thus naturally yellow birdfoods base mixes can be coloured orange, green or gold, and still maintain some of the taste and attraction offered by Robin Red (which would otherwise create red baits). The New Robins all have their own unique flavour to keep Carp guessing. Today, though, I want to concentrate on their colour.
We’ve used ALL that we know about ROBIN RED to create three NEW ingredients, and they’re all based on what we fondly call “ROBIN RED TECHNOLOGY” but what does that mean?
When the first birdfood baits were discovered way back when Noah was a lad, Haiths® was right there at the front when it came to sourcing ingredients. Of course, you all know about the discovery of Robin Red® but I doubt as many of you have heard of such classics as Nectarblend™ , PTX™ and Prosecto™ . These birdfoods have since become firm favourites of the bait trade and a great many proprietary base mixes are now formulated with one or more of these ingredients in the recipe. Indeed, Mark McKenna of Baitcraft fame was fulsome in his praise of Haith's® products in his definitive bait series in Carpworld entitled Bait: It’s a Four-Letter Word.
