    Anyone know of a supply of good large Hemp that splits correctly?
    Looking to buy in bulk 15kg or so.

    Might have to be quick - seller says "Almost Gone" but that could be just sales pitch??

          and how does the seller know...My experience tells me that there are two types....One that splits, and one that don't, even after soaking overnight and boiling for about six hours...Oh....and by the way...It can't split incorrectly

            1) Seller MAY have tried boiling a sample!!!
            2) Seller has 100% feedback rating - + Life's full of risk innit.

              Now I've never boiled my own Hemp, I've always bought mine ready to go.

              Wonder if half a teaspoon of Bicarb' would help?? It works wonders for Mushy Peas.

                I personally would never use bi carb on hemp
                I believe it taints the bait

                  I have used bi carb many times and it dont seem to make any difference to be honest, but then again i always give it a sprinkle of brown sugar once washed off which may help the taint if it does taint it.
                  If you soak your hemp for a couple of hours theres no need for bi carb (if the hemp is fresh)

                    the bi carb is used to make the hemp go dark, if you think it taints the bait use iron tablets this will do the same thing, hemp that wont split is normally old , look at it and see if there are any slightly green seeds(fresh) this will tell you if its old as old hemp looses its colour and gets lighter as it dehydrates /ages.

                      Yet again I have been disappointed with the quality of the "Giant Hemp" ordered from online sources. Recently I ordered some "Giant Hemp", and when it arrived it was poor. Some seeds were little bigger than a pin head.
                      Where do you source your hemp ?

                        I have recently Ordered some Hemp on Line 20kg
                        The Seller listed it as "Mega Hemp" the Biggest Hemp we have ever Sold ,in 40yrs of Supplying the Fishing Tackle Trade

                        I have always used Vast amounts of Hemp on Big Rivers So when I start Fishing Matches on the Severn again I will fish to my strengths
                        Old School Hemp Caster / Maggot to Start with.
                        This Hemp was Delivered Today @ 15.30pm by the Seller on his Delivery Day to his Trade Customers @ 15.35pm it was back on the van.
                        The Hemp was mixed lots of twigs .Basically I have never seen such Poor Quality Hemp as this & Size wise it resembled Rice . Absolutely Crap

                            Giant hemp

                            It was Aldersons hemp that I bought . If this was giant, God knows what the normal sized hemp was . Rubbish.
