What is Ant's favourite Haith's bait?
Wednesday, 29th January 2014
So, why is this my favourite ingredient? Simply put I have never found a single ingredient that adds so much to a bait. CLO stands for Cod Liver Oil the mix however is a mix of egg biscuit, cod liver oil, seeds and much more.
There are several varieties out there and having tried several of them Haith's is the only one that I found that is mixed to a perfect balance, so much so that it can successfully be used as a bait all on its own with the addition of a few eggs to help bind it together.
To make a boilie using just Haith's CLO use the following recipe;
500g Haith's CLO
3 Large Eggs (Chicken Eggs)
If you want to make your boilie roll slightly smoother replace 50g of the CLO with 50g of Egg Albumin.
In my bait making I use 25% of Haith's CLO in all of my long term recipes as it adds protein, nutrient, texture, omega3 fatty acid (lipids) and binding qualities and is a good basis to start from. One of my favourite recipes also utilises the legendary Robin Red and I have included it here for you if you fancy giving it a try. This is the recipe I use to feed my own Koi Carp and they absolutely love it although I have to crumble the boilies at the minute as they are still only about 4" in size. I have also caught several common and mirror carp on this recipe, nothing huge the biggest being 9lb but I don't target big fish waters.

If you have enjoyed the article and use some of the tips why not upload some pictures of your bait and/or fish captures to either the Haith's Facebook page or my facebook page
