|A simple yet very effective boilie mix:|
|Boilies of any flavour including:
Cherry,maple,sweetcorn,tutti frutti,banana or any other sweet one that takes your fancy.
But check with your wife before boiling these!!!
Luncheon meat(spam etc.)
Prawn's (shrimp) whole
Bread,either crust or center
Dog-food mixer biscuits
Basically Carp & Catfish will eat almost anything!!!
|4 oz semolina (pasta flour)
2 oz corn flour
2 oz corn meal
5ml or 10 drops of colouring
5ml or 1 tsp of flavouring
3ml or .5 tsp sweetner or 1oz sugar
Sift the three dry ingredients into a large bowl.
In a separate bowl , combine the 3 eggs,colour,flavour and sweetner and whisk briskly for about a minute.
Now add the dry mix gradually into the liquid and mix to form a firm paste. (You will find that the best way to achieve a good consistency is to use your hand in the later stages)
Put a large saucepan of water on the boil.
Roll out mix into half-inch sausages and cut into quarter-inch sections.Now roll into BOILIES!!
When the water is at full boil, gently put the boilies into the pan about 25 at a time and boil for about 2 mins(1 min for soft,3 mins for hard)
Remove boilies from pan(i use a chip basket in my pan for easy removal).Get water back on boil ,then add the next 25.
Spread boilies out on a tea-towel and allow to cool for a couple of hours,occasionaly moving them around.
Place in air-tight bags,label then freeze,these will keep for years!!
Hopefully not though,you should be out using them to catch some great big
