  • Baits and insects

    Hi, I work on a project at Keele uni and I wonder if you can help me?
    We’re looking at how different scents attract or repel insects. I’m realising that there is a whole wealth of experience in the fishing community of using scents not just to attract fish, but also, incidentally, insects. I’m hearing lots of stories how certain baits on the bank attract cloud of flies, for example. This is all great data for us!
    So, can I ask if anyone have noticed any particular bait that attracts the flies? Or indeed repels them? Either is interesting!
    Thanks for your time with what I know is not really a fishing question!

    Had hassle with corn and wasps on a few occasions. Always put it down to being to close to a nest.

      Take nothing but photographs,leave nothing but footprints.
