Catch Reports

Merv the Swerv bags up again!

Posted in Catch Reports on 26th May 2014

Essential's Globetrotting carp catching machine Merv 'the swerv' Pennel has had another amazing weeks fishing in France where he has banked no less than 10 fish over 45lb and 4 different 50's!! All of Merv's fish fell to our B5 fluoro pop-ups (mainly white and pink 10mm's) fished over beds of B5 boilies.

Merv is in Hungary as we speak and armed with the B5, you just wouldn't put it past him to smash a few  whackers out! He's already had a forty within hours of getting there! Top Bombing Merv...

Making your own

The amount of anglers making their own boilies these days are becoming less and less. This is understandable considering time limitations, but for those wishing to venture out into making their own boilies, these Handy Packs definitely are the way forward because everything you need (apart from eggs!) is inside the bucket.

Making your own bait allows you to use your own 'bespoke' combination of attractors to suit your individual needs. You can also make different shapes and sizes, as well as having the option over soft, medium or hard baits, depending on boiling times, or if you wish to include additional hardeners. Further to this, many anglers find it extremely rewarding to catch fish on a bait they have made themselves.
