The Big Red Carp Fishing Blog
After arriving at 5pm on a 40 acre pit in Devon that holds only six carp, I proceeded to bait up with Red Band particles with added Haith’s Hemp, tigers and Dynamite Baits’ boilies. I spoded out 7kg of mix over the fare margin in about 7 foot of water, then placed a 20ml “Crave” boilie - tipped with a tiger - on top.

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.
