Ive just started making my own boilies and they work just fine. I buy a ready base mix from a local bait specialist for 2.50 per kg and go from there. Today i blended tinned tuna, sardines and mackeral together with my eggs, a good splash of tabasco, some chilli flakes and some salmon oil. My house smells vile but the boilies look great! Once you have all the gear to make them it doesnt take long and i get about 2 kg for 6 quid. You can make what ever flavour you fancy, im toying with the idea of some cooked like meatballs in a chilli con carne with the beans and everything for spodding

In essex we have a number of companies (non fishing) that sell boilies one such farm shop called marriages i would recommend .they are in chelmsford (on the one way system next door to tescos )and i think a kilo of boilies are 8 another shop (tackle ) which i can recommend also is in Russel way chelmsford.Big fish tackle and they are opened 7 days a week. they will be haveing a late opening once a week. please check for details.. not shure if marriages are open sundays but are open the rest of the week. Neither shop does deals on large amounts. But at those prices you can go wrong particular when you want a couple of kilos at a time. (maybe worht giving them a ring anyway)

Best bait to use is a bait that you make your self a lot cheaper than buying baits from some of these companys also you can afford to use more as your costs will be less. Buy Being differnt and not following everone else this can also at times give you an edge. When you make your own bait you start to see how much money these companys are making .Dolton

Top tip, make yor own boilies. I put a base mix together and add some top flavours, all for 3.50 a kilo, competes wiv the main baits as well, at a fraction of the.price. one of the best bits is that wen I bait up with 30 kilos over the.course of a season it costs 95 quid instead of 300, if yor paying the ship prices!! Quite a difference. If yor interested take a luk at the cc Moore site for a few build yor own base.mix.ideas. happy hunting!

Hi
Second post since joining the forum so be gentle lol I may be teaching some of you old carpers to suck eggs here but has any one tried the old trick of soaking there Bollie or baits in C S L? work's a treat. I have had many successes on this method. I use well known baits Mailine, CC moore, but I dont think they are any better than a brilliant locally produced bait that I cannot beat.
On a recent rip to a local lake I shared the C S L soaked local bait I had with a retired gent and a young wippersnapper who because of his age could not afford the well know baits. I caught several to 12lb not big I know but pleasurable the older gent caught a very nice 18lb common and the lad who had only fished twice before had a beautifully marked Mirror of 23lb. it was quite noticable to me that the half of the lake that was fishing with CSL soaked baits caught and the other half of the lake fishing with just boille had to my knowledge nought. Coincidenc I have no idea. But just recently I fished my lake with a bait that I had been waiting a very long time to come out 2hrs with out a sniff I retreived the bait replaced with a CSL soaked boillie 10mins and the run produced a 18lb Common the bait was in exactly the same place as the one I retreived. re baiting and a further run 20mins later produced a huge fish that I was unable to land coincidence again I dont know.
