Fine ground 'Reds' - part three

Fine ground 'Reds' - part three

Just to round off this look at the various applications available to us after creating a fine powder out of our top groundbait mixes (namely SuperRed, MarineRed, HoneyRed and NaturalRed), we’ll close by looking at using both eggs and water to bind the fine powder and some of the useful applications to which the products can be put.

I guess it is no secret that I am getting on a bit! In fact, I started carping in 1963 – albeit, VERY badly! Logically I guess that it follows that not many of you Supercatch fans were around back in the days when birdfoods first became popular, but if you were you may remember the very crude mixes we used to use then. Basically it was a matter of mixing Robin Red with any of the egg-biscuit ingredients, grinding the whole lot down and then throwing it at the eggs and the flavour. Astonishingly enough, this crude bait actually caught fish!

At this time of the year carp are busy feeding up on just about anything they can get their teeth around in order to replace lost salts, vitamins and minerals that have become depleted during the long winter months.

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.
