Favourite Hinders BaitBlitz Boilies - I've caught loads of Carp on them and now added a number of Barbel to the tally as well.

Most memorable sessionHome Pool, Wednesday 28th December 2017: when I arrived at the lake it was all frozen except for the two corners at the bottom of the lake, I nearly turned around and put the kit back in the van but decided to stay and cast my rigs tight to the enclosing ice. The freezing fog was so dense you couldn't see across the lake and the line was freezing in the rod rings but within 45minutes of casting out the middle rod screamed into action resulting in a new personal best at the time in the shape of a 29lb 14oz Fully Scaled Carp...not quite a snow carp...more a frosty fish.

List of PB’s:   

Barbel - 12lb 9oz

Bream - 7lb 14oz

Chub - 5lb 11oz

Common Carp - 36lb 11oz

Crucian Carp - 3lb 6oz

Fully Scaled 29lb 14oz

Mirror Carp - 32lb 3oz

Leather Carp - 25lb 4oz

Linear Carp - 28lb 14oz

Perch - 2lb 11oz

Pike - 21lb 8oz

Roach - 2lb

Tench - 8lb 5oz

I'm an 'all-rounder' that has been fishing for over 25 years - if it swims I will try and catch it enjoying the challenge of fishing for any species on a wide range of venues. 

Mark with a Common Carp

Most of my fishing is carried out on quick day sessions due to work and family commitments but I try to get out at least once a week. A lot of my recent fishing has been on stillwaters but I also relish fishing running water usually on the Avon, Thames and the Wye.

Mark with a Bream

My target for the next 12 months is to catch a double figured Tench and Bream.

Hinders Elips Pellets
Steve Beale (Milton Keynes)
Hinders pellets great for Barbel and Chub.

I’ve used hinders off and on over the past 12 years with fantastic results.
I find them especially effective early season and again when the rivers are low .
Combined with a small PVA bag

C Food 5kg Bait Bundle
ALAN BOND (Harlesden)
Hinders C food bait bundle

Have always held Hinders particles and bait in high regard . The C food is quality and I am sure it will catch . I’m fishing a very difficult water at present with very little coming out at all but I have confidence in the C food and that it will catch before too long . I also enjoy watching Chris (Carp King ) in his very good humoured fishing adventures and to coin a phrase “if it’s good enough for him.” Very impressed with the quality of the bait . Thankyou Mr Jarrett and team .

Great stuff.

After blanking a few times on the trusty luncheon meat, I needed a change. 1st night using, couple of chub and a just shy of 9lb barble.

top quality bait

Beta'nana boilies have a superb aroma are of a soft consistancy and to date have been very effective, another quality bait from Hinders, combined with quick delivery, first class service.

Hinders Mini Combo

Great service

Original order dispatched next day but Hermes had some kind of 'major issue' which meant it still hasn't arrived but a contact to Hinders got a replacement order sent out straight away which arrived by TNT next day no problem. We'll done Hinders, not your issue but you resolved it! Thanks!
