To start mix together equal amounts by weight of hemp seed and Red Band and pour on boiling water.
Allow the seeds to steep in the water for 24 hours and then boil for 20 minutes.
You will note that the softer particles in the Red Band will have swollen considerably and have exuded a sticky gluten-like 'milk'. At the same time the hemp seeds will have cooked but only a few will have split. To me this is the way to get the best out of hemp without boiling all the goodness out of it by trying to make it split.
Now add a sachet (500g) of the SuperSoft Pellets of your choice. Here I am using the Robin Red & Chilli version.
Stir the pellets and seeds together well to distribute them evenly. As an option you can add an attractor of your choice such as Feed Stimulants' Liquid Betaine. This is highly soluble and will add further pulling power to the bait carpet.
Now for the crafty bit! Allow the mixed seeds and pellets to stand for a further 24 hours. The SuperSoft Pellets will then start to break down and blend themselves still further into the seed mix. Just look at this photo and judge for yourself the huge amount of attraction oozing out of the mix!
But it does not stop there. The final piece of this particular jigsaw is Liquid Robin Red. A generous glug of this will transform an already highly attractive bait into one that is simply outstanding.
I have written previously about using PVA mesh but what about solid PVA Bags? Well, they are an equally effective medium for introducing additional pulling power to the lakebed in the area immediately surrounding your hookbait, as these next two photos show clearly.
And while we are on the subject of particles, have you tried sprouting pulses or beans? This improves their nutritional profile and aids digestibility. It also releases the bound up sugars in the baits. Adding sprouted particles to SuperSoft Pellets produces yet another source of attraction that will draw fish into your swim from a wide area.
Finally, don't forget the SuperSofts when you are creating a general purpose groundbait. The Pellets can increase considerably the attraction over and around the bait carpet, adding to the existing pull imparted by other elements of the groundbait. Here those are Frolic, hemp seed, boilies in the form of barrels, and carp pellets. How can a carp resist!
I have been using the SuperSofts in the ways described above since their introduction in 2012 and they have done me proud ever since as this big forty from Le Queroy proves.
