  • Question for Carpmagic

    Do you think that flavors for pellets is important

    Good question, i think flavours are important at certain times. I'll be honest and say i dont flavour pellets very often and when i do its mainly with VDE's liquid pellet which i add to hard pellets when fishing up in the water. Expanders are a pellet i have flavoured in winter with some success though. Mainlines activ 8 and VBDE's scopex have caught me a fair few fish. The advantage in my opinion that flavours give you is confidence that your bait is more attractive to a feeding fish than your neighbours might be. I do like my bait to be different to everyone elses as i believe it gives me an edge.

        I use a fair bit of banana flavouring during the summer months but not certain that it is a must, as me and a mate tried feeding the same hard pellet he used marmite flavoured and caught I used my banana and caught, we both struggled when we swopped baits, ok the flavoured pellets were of different makes so did they make a difference to the presentation, as soon as we swopped back we both started to catch again. I agree with Steve I think its a confidence thing.

                Peter you need a confidence boosting session on pellet, which can be indifferent at this time of the year, when it warms back up a bit try somewhere like Tunnel Barn or Manor Farm, or even up the Civils at Elmdon.

                      Whilst on the subject of flavours thought you might find this interesting.


                      Olfaction:
                      The Olfatory organs (used to smell) are located at the base of the nostrils called nares. Water does not flow to any other part of the body from the nares. They are exclusively used for Olfaction (smelling), are paired and located between the eyes and the mouth.
                      they are shaped like and can be thought of as small U-tubes into which water enters through the leading or forward hole and exits through the rear port or opening. just behind the forward opening there is a flap of skin that directs water into the forward opening of the nare as the Carp move forward in the water. The movement of substances through the nares is aided by diffusion and by the motion of small hair like structures (cilia) within the nares.

                      Taste
                      Taste buds are numerous in and around the lip, mouth and tips of barbles.
                      Regards Billy Boy :)
