Our world-famous Red Band Pigeon Conditioner also makes a great fishing bait!

An effective, yet inexpensive, blend of slightly larger seeds flavoured with aniseed oil. Red Band is highly attractive to carp, tench and other large coarse fish. It’s perhaps one of the best seed mixes of all time (according to some) and it's outright famous for fishing! It makes great Make Your Own Boilies, and was one of the best-kept secrets of the 1970s and 1980s. Why? Because it’s a nutritionally balanced, medium protein/high energy seed mix, supplemented with high-attract mini balancer pellets and topped off with aniseed.

Red Band definitely benefits from a soak followed by a boil. It is one of those special seed mixes that starts to exude a glutinous milky substance following the boiling process and carp find this sticky liquid practically irresistible.

Bait making tip:

Make five kilos at a time to get the best from the seed blend. Leave the Red Band in soak for a minimum of 24hrs, then I boil it in a Baby Burco for 15mins. Switch off the heat and allow the mixture to cool. After a further 24hrs, the Baby Burco is full of sweet-smelling seeds swimming in a juicy soup of thick glutinous liquid. Don’t worry if you haven’t got a Baby Burco as you can prepare smaller amounts on your cooker in exactly the same way. Red Band is one of the best seed mixes going.

red band� Review

"Been using Redband for years when tench fishing. In my opinion it is THE best loose feed to use. I pep mine up with some mollasses liquidised corn and whole corn. Easy to spoon or spod out and when margin fishing you can throw it out by hand. Ground down and then blended with any Nutrabaits base mixes makes fantastic boilies. I've found 30% Redband to 70% base mix about right, though it's worth experimenting."

The Best Particle Bait Out There

"I have been using red band for over 30 years now and have not found a better particle bait.I mix it with the new haiths super nut powder with a sprinkling of tiger nuts and your boilies of choice,topped of with 25ml of robin red with garlic liquid. a deadly combination which has accounted many good fish from my syndicate lake."
