TARES

Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

Tra­di­tion­ally used as a hook­bait when feed­ing hemp, the slightly larger and softer tares are easy to hook and stand out well as they sink through the wa­ter.

Tares are very cheap and easy to pre­pare. Just soak them overnight and then boil for a few min­utes un­til they soften.

Some an­glers add a tea­spoon­ful of bi­car­bon­ate of soda to darken the colour of the tares.

Tares don’t seem to have a great deal of at­trac­tion in their own right, so com­bin­ing them with hemp is essen­tial.

As a hook­bait, they tend to at­tract bet­ter bites than hemp.
