  1. i use a fake mixer most of the time, saves the constant changing of hookbaits
  2. the bolt machine from nash works exactly the same, I've actually done a couple of home made controllers made from old branches so they look more natural, they work well too plus they are free
  3. I've already got a few that work along the same lines, gardener lay flat and the nash bolt machines which I assume are based on your candle?
  4. I had to google the candle rig, its basically a flat controller?
  5. good bait mate but not quite suited to what i'm after achieving, I need a small mass bait I can feed heavily to get them going, dog or cat biscuits are perfect for that
  6. I ended up in a pets at home store yesterday, I went to get some mixers, it turned out to be an impossible job, they had so much stuff in there and in the end I gave up looking for what I wanted, I didn't have time to browse as I was on my way to a lake I did find some catfood biscuits though, purina 'go cat' in a yellow bag, I picked up 4k of tuna and herring flavour as that one looked the most fishy ;) I didn't do any floater fishing yesterday but I did fire a few out and I was most impressed by the oil slick they gave off, they had enough oil in them to flatten quite a big ripple and its easy to see why the carp would go mental for them its warming up a bit later in the week so i'll see if they are any good then
  7. I was thinking of gluing two (or more) same shapes together for the hookbait
  8. I might open my mouldy wallet later then they have tuna, chicken and beef in my local Tesco, I look at them every time I've been in for mixers but I've always passed them up I've always been particularly drawn to the tuna ones so i'll grab a bag on the way to the lake later
  9. any particular brand of cat biscuits greekskii?
  10. I've got a local livery/pet place where I get my particles, I know they sell mixers in big sacks but I've never tried them, I quite liked the Tesco biscuits, after chum mixers went down hill they were the only half decent replacement I could find
  11. I can't say I use boilies that often, its usually one of the particles, this year i'm on maple peas, I haven't used them for quite a while and i'd forgotten just how good they are £10.99 for a 20k sack so very kind on the wallet too
  12. my local Tesco has stopped selling mixers, first chum went, then their own brand, i'm struggling to find them myself at the moment
  13. sotas are putting a lot of work into astbury mere mate, there are some very decent fish in there these days
  14. i'd choose warrington myself, there's nothing wrong with your choice of club mate
  15. same rods I use
