Find a company and bait that suits your angling? What does these even mean. Every decent hookbait company does an array of baits for different situations. Iíd be amazed if one company didnít cover all bases. Your thinking about it more than you need to

Apart from 1 hookbait mix of my own which is very different to everything else out there, Bait Room hookbaits were my go to choice which I and two friends had done very well on over the last 3-4 yrs so when Mitch called it a day we were a bit gutted to say the least. My own hookbait had been catching really well but sometimes a more visual bait would get picked but this was generally by the smaller fish, though still good for a bend in the rod. Having been making bait since the mid-late 80's, I started to formulate some plans to produce something that could replace the Baitroom baits without directly copying them which proved to be very difficult to do anyway. We spent all winter working on these formulas, 8 of them so far and had several short test sessions on local rivers that produced fish straight away, then my first session out due to lockdown rules was last Monday to Wednesday, producing 5 fish, 4 mid twenties to 29, and a small common, everyone else had 2, 1 or blanked on 65 acre gravel pit. Encouraging to say the least.. Main point here is that if these do work as well as we are expecting (they are absolutely not simple baits), we may start small production runs and sell to those interested, or if you want a test batch pm me..

The task of choosing a pop up/hook-bait to use is becoming increasingly more difficult. We truly are in the ďage ofĒ the hook-bait company!

You will get many opinions and recommendations. Peopleís loyalties will have a factor also, as there are many affiliated anglers around today.

There has been some really good advice in this thread, namely making your own from an already manufactured recipe.

My pennies worth would be...

Every specialist hook-bait company will catch you fish. Find a company and bait that suits your angling, as this by definition will give you most confidence in your approach. Stick to the basics and you will catch fish.

Handcraft hookbaits seem decent 👍🏻 Iím a massive fan of ub baits. Ryanís a decent guy and the option to do customs pots is great and at £7.50 good price to. Done very well on mc nut , ting tongs, and a few customs 😏

That's a shame about the Bait Room, his baits were quality, just read his statement and reason for closing.

Anyway:

UB Baits
Handcraft Baits
Specialized Hookbaits
Proper Job Pop Ups

all very high quality products

Why not make your own hookbaits? Companies like CCMOORE do hookbait kits where you can customise to your own liking. Cork dust is available to make wafters and cork balls for pop ups. I can recommend ccmoore and sticky baits hook bait kits a couple of hours work will see you have enough hookbaits for the year at a fraction of the cost

There's also the newly formed company Handcraft Baits. The fella who worked at Blake's Baits has set it up, his username is keeperboy on here. There's a recent thread about them.
