What is your favourite hookbait shape.

Is it either the good old round boile or the dumbell.

what do you catch more on?

I'm still a traditional round man myself, but like to introduce different sizes in my free offerings.

barrels for me! remember boillies are only round so you can get them out at distance at accurately..but we now have spods to do this.i dont use pellets atall now as most are rubbish..especially trout n halibut ones! the ones made 4 carp are good though, i prefer to use barrels instead of pellets

I like to use boilie pellets - I take the boilies and chop them into small pellet shaped sized (Big ones for hookbait), that tends to work really well on my local water

So that must take an age Robert to chop up all your free offerings as well, or do you just do this for your hook-baits, what do you do with all the off cuts as well then

Excellent, nice tip.

I'll need to give that a go, does sound time consuming, but if it puts a fish on the bank its worth it. thanks.

yeah when that chunk is in the net it makes it all worth while lol, it can be harder with smaller boilies but having 3 or 4 from smaller boilies seem to work aswell. No problem mate, happy to help Very Happy

wot i do to make make my own is as follows...if im using an 8mm nozzle i fire the sausage straight into the boiling water..when cooked i let em cool down then cut to size using household scissors..its so easy and you can do loads in minutes!!! you can make bigger size's aswell just by using a bigger nozzle...but if you want a neater hookbait barrel all you have to do is use a rolling table 1 size bigger than your sausage when rolling!
