  1. Thanks guys some great comments....that fall into the general consensus of the majority of people I have spoken to....even native the fisherman are starting to be a bit concerned too...cheers Take care Paul
  2. Thanks guys....some great valid comments that fall in line with the general consensus with the brethren down here....one in particular..from a Victorian carper.... They seem to believe that the killing of 95% of carp will bring their waterways back to a pristine condition, ignoring the fact that most of the damage is done by humans. Remove the industrial pollution, urban and farming run off, bank erosion from cattle and ski boats, habitat removal, redirection of waterways and reduction of natural flows and then you can blame the carp.

    Capture dates...

    Just a quick one guys, I was going back in the archives and wondering does anyone know the EXACT dates the two very well known fish of the time were caught...Cheers Mary Mirror 55lb 13oz - Wraysbury 1 - Terry Hearn Mary 56lb 6oz - Wraysbury 1 by Kevin Cummins Two Tone 59lb 7oz - Conningbrook - Terry Glebioska Two Tone 59lb 12oz - Mark Toland Two Tone 61lb - Gary Bayes Take care Paul
  9. Just a little something to think about...I did some tests a couple of years ago to see how much moisture was lost through air drying...I found over a week from freshly made boilies left overnight....I weighed exactly 500grms of bait and air dryed them for exactly one week...after that I weighed them again and they had lost 150grms due to the drying process...so that then gave me a rough guessimate of how much liquid attraction I would need to get them back to their original moisture level so to say...but a quicker and easier way is to freeze them..take them out shake and exsess ice/frost off t
  10. Squid ink could be an option especially when used in conjunction with fish meal based baits...
  11. Whatever protein inclusion you are using its a scientific fact that adult carp cannot process anymore than about 33-35% ...the rest is pushed out the back....the one thing they are attracted to is amino acids, thats why fishmeal based baits are so successful in the long term....a combination of vegetable, milk, meat and fish proteins are a sure winner because a large amino acid profile is covered... Happy rolling Nails
  12. Blitz in a food processor to a powder....whisk up one egg add pellet powder gradually until a thick paste.... then add 50/50 mix until a firm texture that can be kneaded in to a dough like consistancy...dont make to firm as it will stiffen up after a little time...Happy paste making... Take care Nails
