    Default Liquidised bread for roach fishing

    I’m interested to know from our river and canal specialists how they prefer to make their liccy bread. There seems to be two schools of thought, allow the bread a few days to dry out before blending or blitzing the bread fresh from the packet.

    I always used to hang the slices in a landing net in the garage to dry out before blending it really finely.

    These days however I put the slices in the oven heated to 140°c and then once in the oven I turn the oven off and the residual heat dries out the bread perfecly for blending.

    At the bankside I use a spritzer to mist water over the crumb with a few drops of tangerine flavouring in the water . . . . it works for me.

    Scholars have long known that fishing eventually turns men into philosophers.

    Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to buy decent tackle on a philosopher's salary. ~

    I use the other way. Fresh sliced bread, crust removed and blitzed. I do a big batch and freeze it in smaller quantities. I like to squeeze a tiny pinch which explodes in the canal.
    You have reminded me with this post that I need a new blender as I burnt my old one out.

    Forget the rest, this is the best, had mine four years now and it’s still going strong. Noisy but very powerful.

    Mine packed up but Lidl gave me my money back, all £9.99. It lasted 18 months but only used for liquidising fresh bread. Yours looks good John but it also looks big. I keep mine in the garage and I'm running out of space and there are no cars in it.

    Who keeps a car in their garage nowadays Mike?

    Yes it is big, but that suits me fine, nice and heavy too, allows me to blend larger quantities in one go.

    I like mine to be reasonably fresh before I blitz it in the blender then simply bag it and freeze until required.
    I love to see it explode in water as it sinks slowly in a gentle currant .
    It must be exactly the same when exiting a feeder on the river bottom, poof! And a tempting cloud goes drifting downstream that no fish can resist exploring and if lucky a lump of flake on the hook soon becomes the main meal!

    Straight from the bag, crusts removed in winter, do enough to last a few sessions, put into food bags then freezer, remove after a few days, back in blender and sieve to remove lumps, finer the better in winter for canal, use atomizer on bank if required.

    Ground bait mixes for roach:

    CANALS - 5 slices of bread, 5 very big spoons (heaped) of ground up corn flakes in one pint of filtered water. Mash and mix in bucket using a potato masher. Add flavour (if required to water).

    RIVERS - normal liquidised bread (inc. crusts) with seived layers mash. The amount of layers mash depends on current, if fast use less layers mash to make it stiffer. Add brown sugar and flavour to suit. This mix is also good for plugging open ended feeders or for going in cage feeders. Adjust speed of breakdown with the layers mash.

    LAKES - use either above two mixes dependant on type of lake.

    Mix the groundbait the night before going fishing. These mixes are also ok if frozen for future use.

    Do you blitz straight out of the freezer or let it thaw first?
