  1. Thanks for flagging, for now we only available in the U.K. due to bots slowing the site down from China and US, we were planning to activate France next, the only issue I’m working out is the cost of delivery to europe. Hooks I can get to you for around £2, everything else eg boilies would cost about £15. If you saw delivery costs like this would it put you off ordering? Thanks
  2. Yes mate even barbless are great hook hold, I had a 32lb common out on my first session using them which is my U.K. PB, couldn’t believe it! They’ve had big cats out too in testing which I was buzzing to hear about. I use them myself now on all venues & recommend them to everyone
  3. Great news thanks mate, you deffo won’t regret it! The more support we can get, the more we can grow our range, we’re looking at a range of hooklink material next!
  4. I’ve been reflecting and I wanted to thank my carp.com friends for all support in my fishing journey so far. Ive come here on many occasions not understanding something and left with a wealth of information. You guys are one of the reasons that I became inspired to set up my own fishing tackle business. I’m so proud to say that hookedgear.co.uk is doing well and as a thank you for all your support I wanted to offer you guys a 15% discount code that isn’t anywhere else online - please use Tightlines15 at checkout for 15% off your orders!

  7. Sounds good I would be interested in hearing from them mate, ask them to drop me a message on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/HookedGearUK/
  8. Good shout, thats what I'm trying to do with my bait to start with, making it a bit cheaper than you can get elsewhere, especially as bait is an essential! Then you're right I need another one or two things that are cheap and drive traffic to the website. Definitely, its the same with everything really, petrol for example, if the station across the road undercuts their competitors, they then have to match that drop and so on and they both lose out in the end I don't have the storage capacity yet for things like rods/bivvys etc but that's certinately a future plan.
  9. I'm sure I can give carp.commers a healthy discount
  10. Hey Framey, Thanks for your advice pal. I'm really pleased that I can tick those boxes haha I wont be playing any drum and bass music that's for sure! I will probably make some videos after selling the first few batches of stock, it will be good to get out on the bank and really test the range. I have a DSLR too so I can film it I would probably rather give some away and get someone more experienced to do it though! But we'll just have to see. Thanks, Jason
  11. Hey everyone! It's been quite some time since I've posted on here, I first came to carp.com when I was really new in to carp fishing, asked about 1000 questions and everyone on here was really helpful. Over the last 3 years I've been desperate to do more with my life and have finally decided to start my own online fishing retail company! So once again I come to you guys for your tips and advice but in a different nature this time. Here's where I've got to so far: Company started Sourced a manufacturer for my own branded hooks range! Got a trade deal for bait
  12. This is the kind of rig I mean, helicopter with long boom section I believe it does have a pop up on
  13. Hey everyone, long time no post! I’m going to France in September to fish a lake called Val D’or. I’ve heard it’s clay with patches of silt and gravel but also that there’s weedy areas so a bit of a mixed bag. For the last few years I’ve had quite a lot of success using inline leads catching me my PB 34lb in a gravel pit. Ive recently started experimenting with new setups using helicopter rigs and have had a bit of success. Fishing a new water I’m looking for some advise on your experiences using helicopter rigs, I was conisderIng Korda Kable chod leader with heli set
  14. Hey guys, Me and my mates are looking to go to France next year, it’s our 4th annual trip and we’ve always gone to the same lake but we want to try somewhere new this year. I’m looking for suggestions based on - Friendly staff - Potential for large carp and maybe sturgeon/cats - Don’t want a really hard water though where we’re going to blank or catch 1-2 fish in a week Any help would be really appreciated Thanks Jason
  15. Haha thanks mate! I thought I'd create a new account for fishing only people on there that appreciate what it's like catching a big carp!
  16. Alright guys Im just starting an instagram blog where I can post some of my best catches and wanted to mention it on here incase anyone wanted to follow it to see some of my catches its @JaseCarpFishing, happy to follow back
  17. Hi guys, long time since I've posted on here, I've been doing a lot of work on improving my fishing and have been to France a few times. im going again in September, it's a big gravel pit with some reallly deep areas (25ft) and I plan to bring my Spod/marker to find some decent spots to fish. When watching carp fishing on TV (monster carp) I notice that they will use the Spod to put out a lot of bait then fish all 3 rods on that spot. Do you guys think that's the best tactic? Or would you suggest two on the largely baited area and then one cast to a feature in the lake with a
  18. Worked perfectly thanks lads! Managed to roll 3.5kg of my own bait testing it next weekend!
  19. Thanks for your reply! I just got a new nozzle cut it to 14ml which rolled perfect dumbells (I changed the recipe as advised and they stuck much better) I then slowly made the nossle bigger with a Stanley knife until it rolled almost perfect boilies I haven't tried gunning out all the mix yet though so that's the next plan thanks
  20. Hey again, I rolled my first kilo of boilies this week using my own base mix, working hard on the recipe with the help from another one of my posts here my next job is to figure out an easier way to roll the baits - I have one of the large boilie rolling tables that does 30 boilies at once, but it needs to be screwed down. Even with the rubber stoppers it's still a nightmare to use - does anyone have any tips for how I could build a little frame without spending a fortune? I've seen a few pics where people have them screwed down at and angle and the boilies are dropping in to a litt
  21. Good shout I'll make sure I spend more time kneeding the mix it didn't break much when making the sausages it was more when trying to roll it I used a 16ml nossle though so it was all squashed when trying to roll, then found it difficult to get it all to stick, I did in the end when I added some more mix and another egg. all trial and error I guess!
  22. Perfect thanks, how much brewers yeast would you say? The peanuts were liquified in my mini blender so like powder. Ive taken the Nijer seed off and reduced oils to 10ml hopefully that will help. Should I increase semolina or is that not necessary? Thanks
  23. So I made my first kilo, learned a few things: Next time I deffo need to screw my boilie table down as that was a nightmare Secondly I need to order a new nozzle for my boilie gun as 16ml is too big for 16ml boilie table from googling it ahoild be 1-2ml smaller sausage than then boilie you want to roll finally my boilie recipe needs so amending, I had to roll the whole kilo by hand as it kept breaking apart - does this mean I neee more semolina/soya flour in the mix? Here's the recipe, next time I'm adding brewers yeast and swapping milk powder for lamlac: 200g semolin
  24. Thanks for your replies guys, I'm looking at lamlac but can only find 5kg minimum lol if I find anywhere that only does 1kg I'll go get some looks good though as I'm not putting much in it should last ages like you said
  25. Hey everyone, Bit of a random one, what are your thoughts on using baby formula as a replacement to milk protein in a boilie recipe to 50g/kg? im going to use normal milk powder anyway rather than any of the fancy stuff, and thought e.g. Hill organic baby milk at £8 for 800g would have increased protein/vitamins and iron in right?
