Purple Haze caught me one or two fish on the hardest of days. Fed with a pinch of joker and worm extract for tiny Perch and Ruffe.
I know it’s still available but I rarely see pol vitamo anymore. It created a real stir many years ago.
I use it still. Anyone else?
Mystic. This was in smal tubes and you squeezed a small amount out on your side tray etc. See through red / burgandy in colour. Left to go dry for 10 minutes and then you'd roll it into what looked like a bloodworm. I've had quite a few pound of fish on this stuff. Not seen it for sale in tackle shops for years.
Wouldn't be without it
Mainly in Ireland, it doesn't seem to be as effective over here - maybe the Irish fish have a better sense of smell.
Whizzo Groundbaits went out of business many years ago - which was a shame 'cos they did produce some good stuff - Stench and Irish Bag-Up I remember well. There was an attempt to relaunch some of the products after they folded but other than the odd dusty packet in the back corner of a tackle shop somewhere I don't think you'll find it.
Picardie has disappeared from the shelves too - used to be the best gudgeon groundbait available.
Sensas Picardie and VDE Gudgeon Black.
Couldn't get the smell of curry off your hands after using them but gudgeon loved them- 4 whips set up at 1.5 to 4m, feed a thumbnail of it with a few joker or squatt in every three or four fish, Oxford Canal heaven....
