MINI-BOILIES

Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

It is no sur­prise that 10mm mini-boilies have ac­counted for some of the big­gest roach in re­cent times. These rel­a­tively large, hard baits are very se­lec­tive for spec­i­men roach, as smaller fish sim­ply can’t fit them in their mouths. Scopex Squid and Tiger­nut-flavoured baits have both worked well for me.

It isn’t just carp venues where the roach fall for mini-boilies. I caught my big­gest roach from Lochnaw in Scot­land on a boilie, sim­ply be­cause it en­abled me to sin­gle out the larger fish from among the mil­lions of tid­dlers that pounced on more tra­di­tional roach baits in­stantly.
