Dog bis­cuits to tempt carp

Trout Fisherman (UK) - - Advice Squad -

QWhat is the best make of dog bis­cuits when fly-fish­ing for carp? An­drew Davies PETER COCK­WILL REPLIES: If you mean the ac­tual dog bis­cuit, rather than the fly pat­tern, I hon­estly don't think it mat­ters much what make you go for. I now buy bulk bags of dog bis­cuits (25kg) from an­i­mal feed mer­chants be­cause I get through a lot of bis­cuits each sum­mer when guid­ing, and even oc­ca­sion­ally fish­ing for my­self. As for the fly pat­tern, one deer hair dog bis­cuit fly might look much like an­other but the colour can vary as well as how tight the deer hair is spun. The tighter it is the more com­pact and there­fore the more buoy­ant the fly. Carp are su­per smart and you will quickly find that it pays to have some va­ri­ety with your pat­terns.
