Robin Red......Made in Australia

Recommended Posts

One of the all time bait additives has finally arrived in my kitchen,

http://www.fishforcarp.com/html/ingredients.htm

For many years now this has to be one of the must have additions to many boilie mixes especially fishmeal based concoctions.

Thanks to Brooklands[uK bait making section] for the heads up on the recipe, 10% of the total base mix should surfice so I,ll give it a go today in a batch.

All the ingredients where source locally from the local deli, cod liver oil was a little difficult as nowadays it is sold alot in capsule form, the good health shops should have the bottled form thou.

 

The recipe as follows:

 

200 ml Cod Liver Oil

400 grms Spicy Paprika

1 kg Brown Sugar

 

And whisk together with mixer...Bobs ya uncle....

 

Happy Red making.

The percentages are way off for making RR.

Strongly suggest:

400g paprika

50g sugar

 

Mix these two powders together, then add just enough oil to coat all the powder particles to make them shiny, but not so much that they all stick together and become a paste. This will be no more than 50 ml oil (possibly less), best to add a little bit at a time as you stir the mix.

 

In other words the result should still be a powder product, but oily.

 

Hope this helps :wink:

Thanks Brooklands, no worries for that I did have to add extra Paprika to the mix to get it to the right consistancy as it did start to stick together as you said.

As for the sugar I planned for a sweeter mixture as not having to add any additional liquid sweetener when knocking up a boilie mix.

It turned out quiet glossy in the end and seperated nicely once the oil was absorbed. Cheers.
