  • Chick peas

    Been using them for my carp fishing for years. Got to be one of the most under rated baits out there. Cheap and easy to prepare and flavour.

    Infact i know for a fact some very big carp have been caught on them in Britain by some very well known anglers. Just that there usually "awarded" to certain types of boilies for sponsership etc. And the same goes for tiger nuts.

    They were so secret at one time we used to call them googligarnas(best spelling i can come up with),but i think the secret is safe on here,you can lead a horse to water but you cant make him drink.you can lead an angler to water but you cant make him think.

      Sorry to sound thick but have never seen them, what do you do with them?Are they like Maple peas(Gray Payes as they are colloquially known), do you have to soak/boil them?

              chickpeas.. awesome bait for big carp.. had some fantastic results stalking and using them in the margins.. you cant cast them out as they are too soft.. use them in the margins or pva bags.. superb in a particle mix very under-rated and hardly used.. plus you can flavour them.. i had great results with curry flavoured chick peas

                  I wonder what a bit of humous stiffened up a bit with curry powder would be like?
