Welcome to the latest instalment of FAQ Tackle.
This week we going to talk all things Fox Tackle, Homemade Boilies and my next piece of tackle to add to my collection.
I’m very excited I hope you are too….first question!
What’s your favourite Fox Tackle product?
This is a tricky one as Fox have so many good products but I would to say my favourite would have to be the Black Label™ Indicator Slik® Bobbins. In my opinion these are the best and easiest to use indicators on the market.
I’ve been using mine for a few years now with no issues what so ever. I love how they have two functions of indication, a fixed to the line function giving you pinpoint bite indication but once you have a take, the line removes itself from the clip mechanism give it a free running motion.
The range comes in so many sexy colours making your set up super carpy. The range also includes the option for customisation to suit every type of fishing situation which I’ve never seen many tackle companies do. This range seems to have a lot of time and testing behind it and the quality shows.
If you’re looking for new indicators I highly recommend these indicators by Fox and by the way I have the purple ones they look so good!
Why do you make your own boilies?
I literally could write a whole article on this subject because I feel so passionate about making my own baits so I’ll list a few reason why I make my own boilies.
- To use a bait that’s different to what everyone else is using on the lake
- To experiment with different types of boilies
- It’s a challenge
- It’s fun to make them
- It’s cheaper than buying boilies from the tackle shop which is great for a pre baiting campaign
If you want to find out more about making boilies I highly recommend checking out my other blog Homemade Boilies Quest.
What’s the next piece of tackle to add to your armoury?
I’ve been thinking about this for a while now and I think it’s time to get a pair of chest waders. At the moment I’m not sure which ones to get but I’m sure I will find them very useful.
Theres a couple of reasons why I want a pair. You can cast while in the water to tricky spots and if I’m fishing a swim in which is very shallow close in, in term of fish safety netting them in deeper water will prevent the fish from being damaged.
One other great reason I’ve decided to get waders is you can get your waders wet and slimy, not your clothes so you keep nice and dry while on the bank.
Suggestion of the week
My suggestion of the week is this video by Korda all about carp fishing with limited time.
This is pretty much my current campaign on my local water, doing after work sessions and quick overnighters.
This video is a great example of how you should approach short sessions to really make them worth it and catch plenty of carp.
