WHY GOOD OLD LUN­CHEON MEAT IS STILL THE BEST!

All fish love it, and it’s so ver­sa­tile too

Angling Times (UK) - - SOUTH -

F I were forced to choose just one bait to use on com­mer­cials, it would have to be good old-fash­ioned lun­cheon meat!

Over the years I can hon­estly say it has caught me more fish than any other bait. Bet­ter still, it’s not only carp that will eat it – skim­mers, F1s, tench and bar­bel all love the stuff too. In fact there isn’t re­ally a species that doesn’t like meat, mak­ing it a highly ver­sa­tile bait.

And the best news of all? As far as carp are con­cerned it al­ways tends to pick out a bet­ter stamp of fish – a big ad­van­tage in a match sit­u­a­tion.

WHICH MEAT?

For me there is only one choice, and that is Plum­rose. It has a lower fat con­tent in com­par­i­son to other meats so it al­ways sinks, and it has a firm tex­ture for hook­ing.

How­ever, it isn’t so hard
