  • Imitation bread....

    I have been having some good results with this lately, so thought I would post it up.

    Its imitation bread made from a ladies make up sponge. It's not as durable as the enterprise bread, but unlike the enterprise stuff, it's mega soft when it's wet, and actually takes on water like bread, so good for casting weight. it will eventually sink sub surface unless a bit of floatant is applied.

    Because its so soft when it's wet you have to be carefull the hook doesn't pull out, but nothing like you do when using bread.

    I have been playing with hair rigging it by pulling through a loop of white braid covered in superglue, then whipping the tail on the hook shank.


    To get it looking a bit more like bread, you just nip the dimples into it with tweezers / pliers

    Its had the carp round here well fooled, I'm going to have a crack at mullet with it on holiday.

      Nothing is too much faffing! Doesn't take long to prepare, the fiddly bit is glueing the hair in and whipping it on.

      I have fished this against the enterprise stuff and it's miles more realistic. Let's hope the harbour mullet in Majorca think so !

            Well, you know what they say; women are ok....


            ...but you can't beat the real thing


            Anyway, to put the rumor mill to bed, I only discovered these by accident, clearly as a red blooded male, I don't wear make up. They caught my eye the other week in TK MAXX, while I was looking for a new bra.

                Ok, an update. Tried these bread things in Majorca on the mullet....no chance. They were fooled alright but just batted the bait around. The fish I could get to were only tiddlers, so it was even worse. There was no chance of one guzzling it whole, so no chance of hooking because of the hair rig.

                I had a change of plan, and wrapped and glued some braided backing around a hook shank, about 3 layers to build it up. Then, I coated the wrapped on backing in glue, and dipped it 'crumbs' of the sponge nipped off with needle nose pliers, worked much better, even got me a few finicky mullet
