“Making your own bait is simple,” explains Ken Townley. “Here's how you go about it.”
I first used Robin Red way back in the day when I was a member of a syndicate in Devon called Ockenham Lakes. My mate from up country was using it and had got onto it soon after the word got out and he told me it was the bee’s knees. Naturally I was keen to try it and used in not only in Devon but also on my Cornish venues and at Waveney. My first twenty was tempted by the allure of the red stuff as was Carole’s and catches on Robin Red were much talked about and discussed.
What else can we say about Robin Red®? You all know how well it works. Adding it can improve just about any bait; however, adding it to (already) nutritious and attractive groundbaits can result in magic.
Since the previous blog entry was posted online I have received a number of requests asking if the same paste cannot be made without eggs. Well the simple answer is yes, but I usually ask the question back, why do you wish to avoid eggs? Not all the folk I ask can answer this!
