Peter Green's Winning Fishing Combination: Tips and Techniques

Hi my name is Peter Green and I have been making my own baits for 32 years using various Haith’s products, Robin Red being a particular favourite along with Red Factor, PTX, Nectarblend and Haith’s CLO

I’ve used these in all manner of mixes from simple 50-50 split of bird food with semolina to more advanced recipes like the ones listed below and they have caught me a lot of carp including my personal best common carp at 38lb 12oz from the north west.

I thoroughly recommend using bird foods in all types of mixes; as they help give the baits texture as well as add vitamins and minerals to the mix; and by adding them it helps to open up the bait so your attractors can leak out more easily! Bird Food also provides roughage for easy digestibility so the carp can eat plenty of it without the fear of getting bunged up so to speak.

My particular favourite, Robin Red has been used in baits for years and seems to be one of those ingredients big fish seem to like, just look at the results of Terry Hearn - he uses a Robin Red based fishmeal bait and you can’t argue with the results.
