The Big Red Carp Fishing Blog
This can be a funny time of the year weather-wise…I remember the first time I took Carole to France… It was early-May and naturally I thought the weather would be fine and kind to her, but it rained for two days, then hailed for another two days, then snowed for a further day. She fell in putting a fish back so I have no idea how the rest of the holiday’s weather went as she insisted we came home!
Haith’s continues to deliver its promise - to make buying the genuine ROBIN RED® easier for European anglers - by enlisting the help of French bait giants, Starbaits®, to help clear up the EU Mainland retail supply with a new and easily recognisable 1kg, full colour bag.
I doubt if there is anyone reading this who has not heard of the famous Robin Red, arguably the finest carp attractor of all time. Discovered back in the late 60s, the red stuff continues to be effective to this day, as this recent account of a trip to France will show.
From its base in the UK, bird food manufacturer, John E Haith Ltd has been producing Robin Red® since the early 1950s. More than half a century on and Robin Red is universally recognised as one of the most successful carp baits ever.
March 1st already! Spring is just around the corner and the carp are starting to wake up after their torpid existence through the winter. As the sun climbs higher in the sky with each passing day so the warmer water stirs the rich soup of lake water into life.
Since it was ‘discovered’ by a certain carp angler in Kent way back in the late 60s Robin Red® has probably been the most widely used, most talked about, and most copied carp bait ingredient in the history of carp fishing. This astonishing little product is now used throughout the carp world in base mixes both commercial and home-rolled, and it shows no sign of letting go of its strangle hold on the carp bait industry.
