Hi, we are still sending parcels to Germany yes (3 this week). We have only had one problem where an employee marked the customs form wrong and said it was bait. That was returned.

It’s definitely going to get bigger. It was 55 before spawning last year. 55 after spawning this. It has been a 6-7lb dropper after spawning previously. Everything in there is piling on the weight so fast. Im convinced this common was over 60 a few weeks before. Brutes, is a great description for the fish in there.

There’s two mirrors that have always been bigger than her. All putting on a steady 5lb+ per year.

Incredible.

That's a brute of a common! Looks like it could easily go bigger too.

Looking at some recent photos today on a rare day off this year where I'm not working or fishing. Some photos of that common off of my phone, that I’ve not even looked at previously.

The unhooking mat, is a Cotswold Aquarius Le Graviers XL mat. It’s 4ft x 2ft. That common is def wider across the back than 1ft.

23lb scaly Thames fish laying in exactly the same mat for comparison.

Turns out I am allowed to post these after all.

All balanced S2, with a small fermented tiger on top from last couple of weeks… All since he first tried the fermented maize, tigers & peanuts using the high fructose corn syrup I recommend on the fermented maize thread. This is only the biggest ones he has caught. He’s absolutely ripped a pretty tough lake to bits to be fair.

That sounds really interesting mark

What's the crack with custom orders? Is it possible to get different shapes?
I like to use pillow shaped bottom baits on the rivers, when you just squash the sausages on the table rather than roll them, is that something you'd do at a quieter time of year?

I've written a quite extensive piece for our bait page.... It's coming up to a decade now that the S2 has been on sale. It's literally decimated lakes all over the UK, over and over again.

I spoken about the S2, the sugars, blah blah blah in the past. But there are still many secrets about the S2 that have never been mentioned. I've never spoken about the fat content in the S2. How those fats are made water soluble.

It's actually one of the biggest secrets, of the S2's success. It encompasses why hemp, tiger nuts, peanuts, fish meals and natural oils are all so attractive to carp. I stubbled across this long before SHB was ever created, by the curing of hook baits for my own fishing. One of the greatest byproducts of this process, is fats being made water soluble. Although it was never the intention, it was the ultimate prize.

Did you know.... Hemp contains virtually 40% fat. Peanuts are nearly 50% fat. Two of the most attractive things there are for a carp. Carp love fat. The tricky part is making that fat more water soluble.

I might post it up on here now things have calmed down in this bait section.
