THE EX­PERT’S VIEW

JAMES HIBBARD

Angling Times (UK) - - CARP NEWS -

THIS year I’ve been us­ing solid PVA bags and get­ting great re­sults. These small, highly-at­trac­tive parcels of bait are per­fect for short ses­sion fish­ing, and I like to add a few lit­tle liq­uid ‘ex­tras’ to mine to give them a bit of ex­tra pulling power.

Peo­ple have been ad­ding liq­uid at­trac­tors to solid bags for years, but those I like best have con­trast­ing make-ups and con­sis­ten­cies. But be­fore the liq­uids are added, I like to add a small amount of CCMoore Milk and Nut Crush to the bot­tom of my bag.

This is a blend of nut par­ti­cles and fine water-sol­u­ble pow­ders.

Next I add my lead and hook­bait, and the bag is now ready for the liq­uid el­e­ment. First I add a thick, dense liq­uid called Roasted Nut Ex­tract. This hugs the lakebed when the bag breaks down. On top of this I pour a slug of CCMoore Hemp Oil. This liq­uid is much thin­ner and re­leases at­trac­tion up into the water lay­ers.

By com­bin­ing the two, you can cre­ate a spread of at­trac­tion across the lakebed and up into the water col­umn, and the com­bi­na­tion of the two is a big edge, es­pe­cially go­ing into the cooler months of the year.

This pretty mir­ror fell to solid PVA bag tac­tics.

LIQ­UID AT­TRAC­TORS Us­ing liq­uids of dif­fer­ent den­si­ties helps to spread the at­trac­tion from the lakebed up through the water lay­ers. THE PER­FECT PACK­AGE Us­ing pow­dered bait ad­di­tives in a solid bag helps to keep the carp grub­bing about for ages.
