It took quite a while for us to track down a proper Dairy Cream essence that ticked all the boxes. Many of the modern flavours smell and taste a bit too artificial so we kept looking until we found one that reminded us of the ones we used to smell back in the day… and eventually we got there! It was well worth the wait, old school classics don’t come much better!
Once rolled and air dried for several days we give our hookbaits an extra boost with a light soak in more flavor before packing into our special foil packs. The sealed air-tight packs are designed to lock in every last drop of flavor which can only go one way – into the bait! This ensures that when you open the pack, you (or more importantly the carp!) get a proper smack around the chops!
We add a small amount of liquid bait preservative to our hookbaits during the rolling process which means you can use them session after session with no need for special storage or freezing. Just keep them sealed in the handy zip lock foil pack between sessions. We recommend using hookbaits within six months of purchase to get the best from them, however, you can always use one of our glugs or bait sprays to revitalise older hookbaits.
