Thread: Flavours

  1. Default Flavours

    When using flavoured pellets such as band'ums is it better to use fruity or spicy in summer. many thanks.

    It depends on the species you are trying to catch and type of location that you are fishing.

    If I were fishing for Barbel & Chub in a stream or river or for Tench & Crucians in my local estate lake then I might choose a spicy flavour as first choice, but there are days when the Tench & Crucians may prefer a fruity flavour.

    I’m not sure if the Carp prefer either fruity or spicy but overall I catch more Carp on spicy flavours.

    As for silvers like Roach, Rudd or Dace I much prefer to use naturals or some form of bread so flavouring isn’t really that relevant.

    Many thanks keith . I normally fish on a local commercial which has a mixture of everything.
    I normally fish just plain carp pellets for feed and on the band. Just thought maybe using
    a flavoured pellet might give me more options. I have some bandums in tutti fruity.

    I gave up with flavours in Band-ums, instead I go on colour. The white-ish Scopex do well for me, but then I also do well on Mainline Cell wafter mini-boilies - also white.
