      Always added couple of Egg cups of Anniseed to it personal prefference
      Wheat is quite filling so dont go mad with the amount you use .

        The best way of preparing creed wheat is to first of all buy the very best you can get hold of. It's dirt cheap.

        Fill a saucepan with water and then put in the wheat, about a third of the saucepan. Then let it soak overnight.

        Next day bring the wheat to the boil and allow it to simmer slowly until the wheat swells and just starts to split.

          Preparation & Cooking Times for Particle Baits


          Below is a guide on how to prepare and cook a load of different particles. The list of particles shows how long you'll need to soak each particle bait, along with how long it takes to cook them.


          You must always ensure your selected particle baits are cooked thoroughly as poorly prepared particles may harm carp!

          Soaking and/or cooking times may vary depending on several factors. For example, trying to cook huge quantities of particles together in one go may require a longer soaking time. This is because less water will be able to circulate around each particle due to the excessive weight of massive quantities. Also, adding too much salt may require increased soaking and cooking times because it can cause the outer skins to harden, and this means the water will take longer to penetrate the particles thoroughly.

          The best way to check if particles are cooked thoroughly is to pull out a few using a big spoon, let them cool a little, then see how soft they are in the middle. They should be soft and moist throughout the grain or kernel, and this is when they are cooked properly.

                    Any pet shop that stocks chicken feeds will have Wheat,so you should be able to buy it by the kilo.Pets at home used to sell wheat in 5 and 10 kilo bags.
                    Whats a commercial fishery ?
