The thing is Frenzy, lakes have nothing to do with these new rules and you will have other options than buying from the venue.

'I want to use my own bait' doesn't change the facts that are being discussed here.

Relevance being

i dont want to use a different bait to what ive used for the past 15 odd yrs.

most "supplied" baits ive come across (optionally) are silly prices. granted i dont pay over for my bait and i dont mind paying, but i do when it starts getting silly.

£10 a kg, when you use quantities like i do, it becomes very expensive. not just for me, but for others on the trip/s

Plus alot of bait firms i dont trust and trust is everything i my book.

What is your fishery Jimmy?

I'd imagine just holding off doing anything for now as EU/UK export is a complete disaster area right now and will most likely continue to be for a while. It may well become viable to produce a small range of baits if the demand i.e. UK angler numbers are there still and there is no work around the current regs. Time will tell..

According to a couple of the large bait firms, currently nobody can export bait, from what I've heard there isn't a suitable export document available yet. We're also in a situation where we don't know when we will reopen again so investing in stock is out of the question at the moment - I was intending to contact ABS at the end of the month to find out if they plan on exporting, everything has been so up in the air I thought it best to give them a few weeks to get to grips with the situation before asking.

Id like to be in the position where we can offer both a French made bait and a well known UK made bait, or a choice of two French baits if importing from the UK isn't viable. Long-term we'd like to roll out own but that will require quite a large investment.

Jimmy; do you have a plan for the future with ABS regarding continuation of supply?

I don't understand the relevance.

You will have 4 choices.

Buy bait supplied by the lake.
Buy bait in Europe
Risk it and take it through the border
Decide to stop coming to Europe to fish (or any other country outside Europe for that matter, many have even stricter rules).

Weve been supplying a tweeked ABS bait for the last couple of years, we sold it for about £1 more per kg than you could buy it direct from ABS.
Some lakes take the piss, they're in the minority, most of us are just trying to run an honest business.
Prices are likely to go up everywhere after this year though, the cost of getting British bait out here is likely to go up anyway.

An interesting point.

One thing for sure, this won't be the end to British bait being transported over the channel with anglers. We've only been talking about the rules and there is going to be loads of anglers who will risk it and attempt to bring bait - maybe even the majority. Whether the Douane increase checks and how severe the penalties will be for getting caught with 60kg of your favourite boilie nobody knows yet.
I wouldnt want to be the first to risk it as the Douane aren't known for being forgiving.

There seems to still be anglers travelling over here to fish by all accounts despite the ban thats been put on non residents travelling over. There appears to be a 'one rule for us and another rule for everyone else' attitude shared by many carp anglers.

I canít see what everyone is getting flustered about , their rules and all that .

Supermarket near venue stock up sorted .
Sort out some maize and get soaking sorted .
If venues wonít let you use particle fish the rivers as thatís where a lot of the stock in muddy puddles came from anyway .
Still the up side is no more of these # posts these caught on this bait that bait scenario .

All chill out it will all get sorted in the future 🤔

I wouldnít know, but I assume they sourced them in the EU. Would be interested to know otherwise.

So I'll ask the question again :

What did the non EU based teams of anglers at the World Carp Classic etc do in regards to their baits used in the competition? Would be quite useful to know..
