In April 2018 I decided to try and catch some good roach from a local lake. For my first few sessions I used corn on the float. My first session produced 18 very small tench, a brown goldfish and only 3 roach. My results on the next few sessions were similar with the best roach weighing 1-15.

Something different was called for and after a chat with my local tackle dealer, Richie from Ringwood Tackle, I stocked up with 10mm Hinders Tutti Fruiti boilies. I used these on light ledger tackle and my first session produced 6 roach and also avoided the small tench, result. The first roach was what we now call a Desmond (2-2), my first two from the lake. This was soon followed by a superb specimen of 2-9. A great start on the Tutti’s.

The roach kept coming and I finished the year with 11 two’s and many very near misses so a very successful campaign.

As well as the roach other good fish were caught including carp to 23-8. I also caught some good tench, which I didn’t know were in the lake, while avoiding the small ones. In addition to these I also caught my first grass carp, which came in a session which included another 2lb roach, a 20 plus mirror and an 8-5 tench, quite a day.

My 2019 campaign hasn’t been quite as successful to date, possibly partly due to the weather, but I have still caught a few two’s, the first of the year weighing 2-6. I also caught a male tench of 8-0 on one of my sessions plus a few decent carp.
I have been trying something different on my more recent sessions and am using Tutti’s on the float. This has been quite successful so far but, unfortunately, I have lost a couple of big roach at the net. One of these looked well over 3lb.

I see that the 10mm Tutti’s have been discontinued. I still have some left and once these have been used will be trying the new balanced 12mm ones. Steve assures me that these should work even better!

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

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.

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!
