    250g bags of fair baits natural tutti frutti boilies for 99p.

      i don't use boilies myself,just thought they looked ok for the price,maybe even ok for crushing up and mixing in with particles or groundbait etc.

            Just curious, why you say they are 99p for a reason? Why is that? Is it because they dont have a branded name on the bag? Are they made of different stuff? But then again dont all bait companies use this as a unique selling point? Or is it because they are sold in pound stretcher? Just curious thats all!

                Sounds good to me use them at a fishery u can feed boilles and fish pellet wag there a lot more accurate than feeding pellets and if its just the splash ur after then there spot on at that price.

                  I'd personally stay well clear of these kind's of boillies, this would be due to there normally low nutritional value, and poorer ingredients! But that is because I'm used to fishing low stocked waters 50/100 carp where a bait would be established over a period of months if not years if its good!

                  I would not doubt that these boillies would work on a well stocked commercial, would they be as good as say mainline I doubt it

                      Do they have a list of ingredients on the packaging? Might be worth looking and comparing with more expensive brands. I sometimes do this with normal food stuffs and often find no difference or very little between expensive and cheap brands. I will have a look in my local store later and see if they are stocking them.

                        I would doubt there is a full list of ingredients as there would be no unic selling point then! I'd of thought it would be high in semolina, as its a cheep bulk ingredient
