Boilies

Here’s our full range of boilies and matching hook baits and liquids. All boilies are made in the UK on professional rolling machines using high-quality ingredients.

With our flavours of boilies we try to stick to ones we know that work but twist them up to get an edge. This is exactly how we formulated the spiced krill flavour, we all know krill is a killer for catching carp in the summer and the added spice kick gives it an extra edge in the water. The spiced krill has accounted for numerous big carp this summer across the UK and over in France.

Carp fishing boilies – FAQS

What size hook should I use for each size of boilie?

This is a really common question and there is no hard and fast rule. Below is a general guide to what I’d use personally – the best advice is to play around with the rigs and see how they look and what you catch on.

  • 12mm – I’d usually use a size 10 or 12 hooks.
  • 15mm – I’d usually us a 10 or an 8 size hook.
  • 18mm – I’d usually use an 8, 6 or size 4 – but you can go to a 2 – this just isn’t something I’d personally do.

What’s the best hook bait to use?

Boilies are commonly referred to as bottom baits when we’re talking about hook baits. You can fish these on a standard hair over a bed of free offerings to great effect. In general, especially in the warmer months, I’ll fish a matching flavoured wafter on the hook over the free offerings.

What boilies would I use at different times of the year?

  • Spring/ Summer – The general guide would be to use higher oil and fishmeal baits in the warmer months – like my spiced krill flavour which catches loads in the summer.
  • Autumn/ Winter – When it starts getting cooler higher oil boilies aren’t good for the fish as the oils take time to break down. Usually, carpers, including myself, move over to sweeter flavours link the White Chocolate and Orange. My top choice of boilie to use in winter is the Pineapple, Butyric and Black Pepper Oil wafters, fished over a few free offerings, pellets and all soaked in boilie glug.

How do you put boilies on the hook? 

Hooking a boilie is done via a hair rig – if you’re just starting out these can be bought from any tackle shop or online – you’ll also need a boilie needle and some boilie stops. To rig it up you put the needle through the boilie and pull the hair back through, then put the boilie stop in the bit of the hair your pulled through and then tighten it up.
