Angling Times (UK) - - ADAM PENNING -

Q Would you use Krill boilies all year round or should I con­sider a switch?

A I will be us­ing Sticky Manilla boilies be­tween De­cem­ber and March only.

Q Would you use hemp oil through the win­ter?

A I don’t use any oils in win­ter as they don’t leak off in cold water.

Q I’m think­ing of try­ing to make some boilies my­self and was won­der­ing where to start, ingredients-wise?

A It’s best to buy a proper base mix from a good com­pany and then ex­per­i­ment with flavours, dyes and sweet­en­ers.

Q Any sug­ges­tions for liq­uids to store plas­tic baits in?

A I’ve al­ways found Hin­ders Be­talin to be a good glug.

Q Would you use two high­qual­ity boilies to as free of­fer­ings or stick to just the one flavour for the ses­sion?

A I tend to stick to one. Noth­ing wrong with a bit of ex­per­i­men­ta­tion, but I al­ways think they’ll have a pref­er­ence for one of them and I’d pre­fer not to over­com­pli­cate mat­ters.

Q Any tips for fish­ing Par Fish­ery in Es­sex?

A They love float­ing baits in there. Good old-fash­ioned hemp and tigers are also good.

Q Can the knot you use when ty­ing zigs cause line twist with the Fox Zig Alig­nas? What your ap­proach?

A The knot shouldn’t cause line twist. I use a lead clip and a tail rub­ber with an anti-tan­gle sleeve at front. That’s all I seem to need to keep the rig tan­gle-free.

Adam opts to ditch the oils in win­ter.
