Bait & Equipment

Anglers always feel the need to load the car up with tons and tons of bait and equipment for
fishing in France, but to be honest apart from some extra clothing and a little more bait you should only need as much as you would for a weekend session. The average angler uses around 10kg of boilies and 25kg of particles and you can always buy some more through us if you are running low.

Recommended bait

10kg of fruity flavour boilies tutti fruit, strawberry, banana, and cream have seen good results over the last 3 years.

Trout pellets or carp pellets 6mm to 8mm recommended. Hemp seed or particle mix works well.

Our Prices: 25kg of carp pellet: £3 per kilo. Boilies 10kg sack £4.50 per kilo
