Tad unfair..... The deal wasn't agreed until the 24th, so exactly how were they- or any other business- supposed to prepare?

I listened to a cheese maker on the radio yesterday who had prepared and can't export to EU countries. He needs a health certificate for every truckle, which is very expensive.

If the Scottish Fishing Industry are struggling, I can understand why boilie makers are.

Also heard that as part of the deal Johnson could have agreed to common food standards but chose not to legislate for that when it was ratified in parliament......

... and in the meantime their EU based customers are looking for and finding alternative suppliers, unfortunately.

In fairness, nobody knew what the deal would look like until days before the UK left. The bait manufacturers that spent the time ensuring everything was up to EU spec (baitworks may be one) are also unable to export currently and as far as I'm aware no company currently knows how feasible exporting intonthe EU is going to be. This isn't just affecting bait either, loads of companies are unable to export into the EU currently.

Baitworks

Hi Michael,


Unfortunately as it stands with new rules as of Brexit, we are unable to ship out to the E.U.†


We re not sure if or when we will be able to send overs back out to the E.U.


Sorry for the inconvenience.


Many thanks.

Lots bought it direct through ABS to bring here too, I never minded and weve always been pleased to recommend other alternative baits that work well too. The idea is to provide and promote a bait that catches well and is good for the fish, sales are a bonus and plenty of customers were more than happy to spend the extra to save on hassle or top up what they bought. We run a specimen carp lake not a bait shop!

Silverslayer... its a ludicrous state of affairs and as I've said before bait will be a drop in the ocean compared to the havoc being wrought on businesses as a whole.
I suspect your right regarding smuggling and a few friends have hinted that they won't be put off... its just a matter of time now to find out if the Douane are going to be strict.

Boilies will be more lucrative than cocaine or hash the way things are going

Jimmy,

There was an article in the Telegraph today (yes them who supported Brexit) advising British companies who export to Europe regularly to open 'hubs' in Europe.

Let's think about that. Those who wax lyrical about the benefits of Brexit and promised "sunny uplands" and only positives of Brexit, are now publishing articles advising companies how to overcome an inevitable consequence of Brexit!

James O Brien on LBC (I know not everyones cup of tea) ran a phone in this very morning on the subject. He was inundated with calls from small business owners who were experiencing
problems with exports. Some were either closing or moving to EU. (there was a T-shirt supplier who makes promotional T-shirt and merchandise for bands on tour that was moving his entire operation to EU zone for example).

I suspect Mainline to be the first to to exactly this, after all they have adequate connections to have a distribution site in northern France /champagne area.

If you do the numbers it's worth doing (importing British bait, doing the paperwork then distributed in FRANCE) but... I suspect once this all dies down, anglers will take their chances on "smuggling" it in. It remains to be seen how French customs will deal with it. If they take a hard view, which they might, I can see many anglers vans being emptied at Dover just to check if bait is present or not, especially if some anglers start to smuggle. That will go down well! Loading my van takes bloody ages!

A lake I fish in France used to get abs to ship out all of his bait in the past but most of the anglers used to take abs for cheaper than he sold it.

Thatís why he now gets his boilies either from Holland or Belgium

I've talked to a lad from ABS but as they're not sure whats what right now and are currently closed due to obvious reasons, I'm getting back in touch mid Feb.
I think making actual bait orders are the last thing on most French lake owners minds at the moment, spending out on bait orders is not a good idea when we have no idea when British customers can make it over. Ordering bait from the UK in smaller quantities for personal use won't be feasible going forward I shouldn't think, there'll be too much admin and costs per order involved to bother with anything but large orders.
UK companies are being advised to open hubs on the continent so that they can ship over in bulk, which minimises costs and administration significantly, and then dispatch to EU customers from inside the EU. It seems like this should be the model for UK bait companies or possibly a business opportunity for a middle man who's got the money to invest into something like this, they could also offer a selection of British foods including meat ect. If I was based near the ports and had money burning a hole in the bank it's what I'd be thinking of doing!
