MY TOP FIVE PAR­TI­CLE BAITS

Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

Su­per-sweet Tiger Nuts

Tigers have a sub­tle taste that carp love, so I only add a few drops of su­per-sweet Tallin or Tan­gle­berry to boost this awe­some carp bait.

Salty Pop­corn

Pop­corn makes a small, firm bait. After cook­ing I add a ta­ble­spoon­ful of sea salt flakes and the same of sugar and soak for two hours.

Tomato-flavoured Black Eyed Beans

An old-school com­bi­na­tion that re­mains highly ef­fec­tive. Add a small can of tomato soup to a pan full of beans and then cook as nor­mal. The sweet aroma is a bril­liant carp and tench at­trac­tor.

Chili Chick Peas

Chick peas are easy to hair rig and the ideal size for hook­baits. I boost them by adding a tea­spoon­ful of chilli paste while soak­ing them.

Fruity Buck­wheat

As an al­ter­na­tive to hemp, when boiled this small par­ti­cle gives off a milky cloud. Sweet flavours bring out the nat­u­ral aroma.
