Bait flavouring proves key to winter wins

A brand new bait flavouring has helped a top match angler put together a rack of wins at a series of popular commercial fisheries.

Ultimate Barnsley Blacks rod Tony Woods has been sampling a number of new creations from up and coming outfit Assassin Baits and his latest trials with a bright additive have thrown up a number of stunning results, including several big hauls of carp in freezing cold conditions.

“At this time of year attraction is key and this offering has the ability to tempt carp into feeding when the temperatures are below freezing. It’s the first item in my bait bag at the moment – it’s that good,” explained Tony.
