Thread: Ground bait

    Pretty sure that Collant and pv1 are exactly the same stuff. Always carry a small bag of it for stiffening up a mix in deeper water or fast flows.
    Terre de rivière has a similar effect and is heavier ... think it’s mainly clay .... as is leam. I haven’t used the latter in years as I don’t fish bloodworm at all.

    Picardie I’ve came in paper bags didn’t it! Seem to remember something about garlic and gudgeon.

    I don’t fish any tench venues really, so can’t give advice on that.

    I’m more of the school that consistency, colour and action are more important than flavour and smell. But then again, fish meal works wonderfully well!
    I use various mixes of
    Sensas lake black
    Sensas Gros Gardons
    Sensas River
    Sensas terre de riviere or terre de Hereford (molehill soil from The bank)
    Pv1
    Brown. Crumb
    Fish meal
    White crumb (to stiffen up liquidised bread)

    Picardie,wow,i remember using that on the canal as slop,all that practice so as to be able to flick out a bit around twenty pence piece size to the far side,used to catch plenty of roach and skimmers over it,sensas black lake is an exceptional groundbait and always worth having a bag in the car....

    Collant just means sticky in French; VDE and Sensas have versions of it.
