Is it rolled fresh Ken (freezer bait) or can you get it air dried?

My mate was out last month and he said the only checks they were doing is the usual swobbing of the door handles and steering wheel so I think I’ll just do what I’ve been doing for the past 20 years and chance it. It would be nice to know if anybody has been checked with their bait in clear sight and got the all clear?

My experience is no they are not but, there is no certainty to that so if you do risk it you need a back up plan.

Does anyone know if the customs are really enforcing the no boilie rule?

Union Jack Baits for me. They will create bespoke baits and deliver it to you chosen venue. The owners, Andrew & Ben BERNARD know their stuff. They rolled for Nutrabaits back in the day and Bill wouldn't use any two bit organisation.

Thanks for the heads up, they are based near Vitry le Francois which is where I’ll be in 2 weeks. Works out perfect for me

I have been reading this thread with great interest as hopefully heading out later in the year. I searched a few bait companies in France making some enquiries including some mentioned in this thread and they are all roughly the same priced which worked out about £10 a kilo plus delivery on top, which with no bulk order discounts seemed pretty expensive to me as most companies in the Uk will give the discount buying in bulk and the delivery cost seem a tad high!.

I sent emails out to several companies in the Uk, but to be quite honest they were pretty much useless, just saying ‘due to restrictions they havent been sending it out’ Angling trust seems to be pretty poor with only update being back in January that they are trying to fight the case!

The only company that seem to have mastered it at the moment is mainline baits, they were able to direct me to a lake owner who stocks the Cell and have a chap at Calais on Friday and Saturdays to deliver to anglers at a cost of €20 an order. They do of course do particles which seem reasonably priced, more so than the quotes i was getting from the French companies! At the moment though it is just Cell bait in stock but this may change in time. If anyone is interested the website i was provided was https://www.levasion.co.uk/copy-of-t-c?fbclid=IwAR0UvQ82zmbFfMIbHqATiYADeBXUzTh7c8aRHPXbjOlUpOeAxq5uLW8vPWs

Please note i have no links to this company, just merely wanted to share my findings, as i recon i have spent countless hours reading the forum posts, googling bait companies and sending emails, so just my pennies worth!

I agree , those prices are a bit much for me as a lone angler , £1.50 a kg postage 😂
I haven't asked where they are based , I'd imagine , very near to Calais , well that would be the obvious place to set up .

Looking at those prices I feel people will still take the risk with taking their own bait over

I guess the only people that can answer that are those that have tried and failed to take boilies on a reasonably small scale to France. Other than that it's all conjecture. Not sure if anyone on here has been caught and is then happy to relay the experience on?
