I was wondering instead of keep buying the shop brought brands of groundbait. Does anyone make there own mixes up i.e use brown crumb and add etc to it. I dont mean use crumb and add secret or expo to it, i mean your own flavourings a mate and myself were wondering if we could put our own together to save some cash.

I buy in bulk and tend to use a mixture of brown and red crumb + crused hemp whole hemp micro pellets and even sweetcorn

I shall probably add fish meal or krill powder at some point soon :))

It's suprising what magic you can weave with a combination of a cheap German supermarket, an old food processor & a sprinkling of imagination[;)]

Stawberry essence...45p from Sainsburys. A whole bottle in your crumb makes it smell ace.

I also use Robinson's Apple and Blackcurrant (undiluted) for mixing my crumb. Nice and sticky and sweet smelling.

Why not dry your end of loaf bread slices? I hang mine in the green house for a few days, then put them in the blender and hey presto, a very fine bread crumb!

You can always get free bread from bakers at the end of the day or just use your own. Smash it up in the liquidator, along with some dry pellets, couple of cheap cans of sweetcorn (place on tissues and dry for 24 hrs), grate some cheese in and your away. You can even keep it in the freezer to retain freshness.
