    Which Boilie?

    FYI: The stuff that is really buoyant has usually been cut with a cheaper shrimp meal, I use the Norwegian stuff which you can get away with up to 20% if the mix is balanced right, with the cheaper stuff (generally has a pinky tinge to it) anything over 10% can start causing issues dependent on other ingredients, major bait companies probably don't go over 5%

    Which Boilie?

    Might be worth naming the company as some one might have experience of them Also any bait maker that is worth parting with your hard earned cash for, will have no problem giving you a breakdown on request of what your chosen bait is made up from, just a side note Nash's ingredients are listed on the bag

    Which Boilie?

    How much do you value the fish you catch ? The boilie market is saturated these days so I can see why people find choosing the right bait very difficult. So will a cheap boilie catch fish most likely in the short term, but what about the long term a lot are made with cheap ingredients with no thoughts about how the fish will digest them or there long term health as most are devoid of anything that the carp can utilise once eaten, they catch by tricking the fish via usually a form of liquid based attraction, plus carp will not continue to eat stuff that is really hard for them to break down as it expands a lot of there energy to produce the enzymes in its gut to break these cereal balls (which what most are) down. For me if your going to put a fish through the stress of being caught at least feed them something that is going to aid there recovery and general health, but how do we pick something that will give them that which is tricky bit, first it would be worth finding out if the fish in your chosen water have a preference for say a fishmeal based bait or a nut based etc... . Are there any bait businesses near where you live ? if so check them out. You don't need to spend £14 a kilo to get a really good bait you just need to find a good honest bait firm. There are few mentioned in other bait threads in this forum. What sort of waters are you fishing, day tickets, tricky syndicate, rivers ?

    If its normal skimmed milk powder should be fine at 150 as it doesn't carry as much fat content as the lamb and calf replacers

    So rough workings to a kilo, as a starting point 400g Fishmeal (or 40% as Nick suggests, also pretty much covers a carps dietary requirements) 150g Skimmed Milk 100g each of soya, semo, tiger nut flour and maize flour 50g Bodybuilding protein (its normally a WPC variant) And if you catch you have to put it in the catch reports

    Have been told its a sweetish smell, probably loaded with molasses, I love the fishmeal is present bit on the bottom of the bags ... lol, the texture looks rubbish as well from the pics i have seen.
