BEAUTIFUL BETALIN

It’s amazing when you look back how long we have been selling Betalin; we approached Keith for something special, initially to be added to particles, but as time went on so did the diverse range of applications grow, to the point where we can’t think of an angling situation where Betalin can’t be included!

We thought you might like a few of the tips and applications of Betalin in its various guises.

1. Make the fakes come alive.

Before going any further its massively important to realise that it’s your responsibility to fish any fake bait on a safe rig, these baits will fish for ever should you crack off. If in doubt don’t use them! Keith is currently working on bio-degradable fakes, so let’s hope in the future fake baits will break down as effectively as other natural type baits.

There can be no question that fake baits, boilies, corn maggots etc benefit from being soaked in Betalin, and the longer the better. Pure Betalin is a classic as it can be fished over any background feed, soluble it gets into the surrounding water column extremely quickly, whatever the weather. Come colder water temperatures look at Beta Nana, Tutti or XO Carp, as the esters in them are very appealing in such conditions. If you want though you can spray the hookers prior to casting, or every cast for that matter, meaning you can change flavours accordingly.

Betalin a great addition to fake corn

 

2. Stop the Nuisance Fish

One little tip particularly where there are nuisance crays present is to use the ESP range of fakes. They have a small hair stop recess on the end or side, this makes it much harder for the cray to get the bait off, and don’t think they won’t try! It also fools the tuffties and coots in the winter! Also try making a longer hair and carrot rig the fake corn on, a bigger mouthful, colorful attraction, and a gob full of clutter making rejection harder, oh and yes, its different! Soaking fake tiger nuts is also a good edge where tigers are banned, fishing them over hemp and tares. Use a small yellow tip on the tiger just to give it a little edge. Alternatively, if you want to balance off real tigers then also soak the cork pieces in Betalin, we suggest soaking in with prepared Betalin Tiger Nut Hook Baits.

3. Magaliner Rig dipped in Betalin

The magalinger rig and method is deadly, but it can be made even deadlier by soaking the fake maggots in one of the Betalin range and then over spraying the live germs (maggots) with the same flavour combo. It really does kick off in the winter when this approach becomes so successful. Beta Nana has really proven its worth in this situation.

4. Get Zigging

Don’t forget zig fishing either, soaking, over spraying foam hookers is really deadly using the Betalin range. Soak foams and then cut accordingly to get the hookbait sitting correctly. Imitation bugs and the like are best over sprayed prior to casting out, do this habitually to reap the rewards.

Hinders Barbel Blitz Elips Pellets

Popped my Barbel cherry.

After 3 previous trips in the Summer to the Wye using other baits I was still in search of my first proper Barbel. The 4th trip was much better conditions with the river dropping after a flood, but using double Elips Pellets I caught 7 Babel between 5 and 9lb. Very happy and still have some pellets eft for next time.
