Well it may be 'ready' for the lazy anglers who advocate this, but it certainly will not be ready for anyone who wants to get the very best out of this incredible seed blend. First soak for 24 hours, then bring to the boil and then simmer for 30 minutes. This releases the sugars and glutens from the seeds, which are what the carp and other coarse fish find so attractive.
Prepared correctly, Red Band will get so gooey that you will be able to turn the saucepan upside down without it spilling... and just LOOK at the close-up photo of the correctly prepared bait.
Remember Red Band gives you wins!
