Haith's Baits Robin Red® - since the 1950s - has earned a global reputation as a carp-catching legend. However, as with anything of significant value, there are fake Robin Red's available on the market, and there are plenty of products imitating the red stuff - some claim to be better, but none of them have stood the test of time and competed at the high-level of Robin Red. Only Approved Bait Firms are licensed to sell Robin Red products - always look for the Robin Red logo...
Robin Red can be used in a number of ways; visit the Haith's Baits blog and search for Robin Red and you'll soon see what we mean. It's versatile; it's adaptable; it's effective; it's probably responsible for helping anglers to catch more carp than any other bait ingredient in the world. That's a big claim. And it's because it's so effective that it's copied throughout the EU.
The first thing you should know is that not all red baits contain Robin Red. They may simply contain red dye. Robin Red is a complex blend of high-quality ingredients that anglers have speculated over for many years. Every year someone launches a product to compete with Robin Red and yet it remains one of the most popular carp bait ingredients ever!
Buy Robin Red direct from Haith's Baits or from one of our Approved Bait Companies - the list can be found on our website from the main navigation bar, at the top of the website page. Approved Bait Companies have been issued with a unique logo and licence and have made a commitment to use Robin Red at sensible inclusion rates. We don't think anglers should pay extra for Robin Red baits that contain ridiculously low level amounts of Robin Red in them.
It's true that Robin Red wasn't created as a fishing bait - who was fishing for carp in the 1950s? It was created to help bird-keepers get their cage birds through the energy sapping moult, whilst helping the birds to retain their colour and grow new feathers - a very demanding process. What benefit is this knowledge to anglers? It confirms that Robin Red has been fed safely to birds since the 1950s and fished safely with for many years...it's been tested by time. It's been tested across the globe. By many of Europe's leading bait firms. Ask yourself this question: who's tested the Robin Red copies? How safe are they? Would they be safe enough to feed to a delicate canary? Who knows! SO before you consider buying a Robin Red copy, ask the bait firm to confirm what laboratory analysis has been done to guarantee the safety of the bait.
