Black Snail (short preserved)

This is the bait that has secretly been doing the rounds and catching an astonishing amount of carp in recent years. This bait is totally unique and different to anything else you would have seen with the key ingredient being the aquatic snail meal that sits alongside fishmeals (including salmon meal) and crustacean extracts.

It has the aroma of fresh snail meat with Caviar and is VERY different to anything else available. Further to this, its black colour very much ties in with most of their natural food availability – including snails! The dark colour is also very effective when it comes to avoiding the dreaded tufties and coots!

An extremely high quality food bait that will give anyone a massive edge over other boilies being used. Note: The black colour is permanent and will not wash out or fade.

Attractor Profile…Aquatic Snail meal, Liquid Caviar, Betaine, GLM and Red Salmon Oil.

Available in 16mm, 20mm and Barrels

Short term preserved boilies

Andy Clark successfully used our short term preserved boilies to tempt this awesome 67lb giant from Gigantica in France.

Many anglers love fresh/freezer boilies, whilst others prefer the convenience of shelf life boilies for those extended sessions or trips abroad. We therefore decided to develop a 'hybrid' between the two and our short term preserved boilies have been used with remarkable success across Europe. Their 30-day shelf life suits many anglers, and if you plan to have your bait delivered a few days before your trip, they will not only be fine for the duration of your stay, but any that are brought back can be put in the freezer and treated as freezer bait thereafter.

These boilies are also ideal for customers ordering bait from outside the UK, because the baits will withstand the shipping duration and can be placed in your freezer ready to use as required. Due to a 'drying out' period they are generally slightly harder than standard freezer boilies.
