    Gardner tackle suspender float.

    I made the same thing nearly 30 years ago with a pike float ... lead on bottom to keep anchor , It was like casting an angry monkey out ... rig bits spinning etc , hope its improved ,

    ABS

    Hi , The bait arrived , excellent service by abs , bought a box of bacofoil zipper bags and separated the 5 kilo bag into 1lb bag's ... that's a really good idea Smufter , thank's for the tip , I'm not too sure how to store the paste , I'll probably make 4 ball's , wrap one sheet of clingfilm around each one and then put them in airtight pot's , no idea if you can freeze it , I'll post some shot's soon of pre baiting with this on a small lake I'm fishing this season , It's only about an acre big and hold's a mid twenty, not massive to you guy's but My biggest is only 20 lb so would be nice to see if I can get him on the Hydra K Thank's so much again , can't wait to use these

    I rang them last Week and I think his name was Geoff and he could'nt be more helpful , I ordered 5kg of Hydra-K with matching glug , popup's and paste , He said around 40 - 50 popup's depending on size , He also said to freeze them when they arrive too , Thank's again Smufter for the help too , really appreciate it

    Thanks so much Smufter , I'm so clueless on boilies to be honest , I've only ever bought them off the shelf in 1kg bags and usually use them in one session , I'll just order them and the popups I think ... I hear such good things about ABS Huge thanks again

    Hi , I've messaged ABS on the hydra-k and matching pop ups but had no response yet , so wondered if anyone on here knew my queries , Can you freeze or keep the boilies for a month or two as I won't use a 5kg bag as quick as most , Also how many pop ups do you get for their price of £10 ? , Many thanks

    Hi Crusian Even though I've been Carping for over 35 Years I took a break for many Years and come back to 100's of different types of boilies ... thats why I bought the samples , When I first started all I could get was Richmond boilies , and Tiger nuts and luncheon meat were My next bait ... I use to use kitty kat and weetabix but that stopped working after a while , I'm very interested in buying some ABS boilies but have no idea what Ones to get , I was thinking of the Malarky but they have now brought out Hydra-K so debating which one Anyone recommend a good abs boilie please ?

    Soft Floaters

    Hi All , First off apologies for the title , Anyway I luv surface fishing for carp and usually use pre-soaked , on the band / hair or artificial dog biscuit but last session was a bit miss and go with pre-soaked ... the middle alway's seemed tough or they were too spongey and came off easy , I would also like to add flavour / oil as " some " say it works , So do I just add oil / flavour ... or do I add water and oil/flavour ? , hope that makes sense and would appreciate knowing how others prepare dog biscuit , Thanks again
