  • flavours

    hi guys I have tried loads off different flavours, I must admit it has not really convinced me that they make much difference, it seems to me the fish are there or not. do you have any success's with flavours I still be leave there is something in it maybe I have not found the right one.

    None at all, bin em.
    Fish eat things because they like em and are used to them being food sources, you don't see fish farms adding flavours to their feed pellets.
    I've got bottles of all sorts in my garage and anyone who wants to come round our house is welcome to em.

                    I know folk catch using flavours and like most I've dabbled, but I reckon fish are caught in spite of flavours rather than because of them.
                    I've even had a chap on another forum trying to tell me he could catch fish on a dipped fag end.
                    I have an incidental on my left shoulder, he's always there, he's my friend.
                    He says he gives me good advice. does he ?

                      A wise man once said " flavours catch more anglers than fish "
                      When I started 40 yrs ago with my Centerpin and Cane rod all we had was worms n bread couldnt afford maggots never mind groundbait
                      Dont think the fish have changed or read the marketing hipe that go with all the new catch everything that swims bait
                      seems funny only last week Angling Times where quoting that traditional baits are making a comeback

                        I think the key to it all is feeding and feeding what the fish want rather than flavours. The top anglers seem to get this right.

                          Traditional baits comeback, have they been away.

                            I think there probably is some place for flavours/additives, but theyre not the catch-everything-that-swims wonderbait that theyre marketed to be. And they are no substitute for correct feeding and bait presentation.

                            A couple of years ago, I tried using various flavours after seeing all the hype about them, in particular Marukyu krill powder on maggots. I had some cracking days fishing using flavours, but I had some rubbish ones too. And I think the good days were because the fish were there in the first place and I got my feeding right to keep them in my swim and keep catching them. Since then, I've decided I'm better off learning as much as I can about correct feeding in different situations, and correct bait choice/rig selection/shotting etc etc.

                            I know some top anglers believe 100% in using flavours. Steve Ringer is one of them. But again, he isn't using the flavour as a substitute for correct feeding, rather he uses it to try to gain an edge over other anglers who are also feeding properly.

                            I think, though, that there might be days in winter when it's really cold where using a flavour will stimulate fish to feed when they just won't take plain baits.
