So Natural Black Roach

Part of the Traditional Groundbait range

texture 2

With the resurgence of silverfish fishing on natural venues we took a fresh look at the market and decided to manufacture some groundbaits to suit this style of fishing all of which could be mixed straight from the bag or mixed with the others in the range to tailor a groundbait for a specific day on a specific venue.

Designed by Des Shipp and Lee Kerry this dark roach mix is heavily hemp and coriander based, two of the best ingredients for catching Roach. It contains finely milled hempseed as well as a mix of coarser hempseed for texture so it is a great mix for the summer or if it is being used over winter where a finer mix is required some of the larger hemp can be riddled off. Coriander is also one of the best ingredients known for roach.

Mixing Instructions

So Natural Black Roach is simple to mix. Empty the bag of groundbait into a round mixing bucket, fill a 1-pint maggot tub with water, pour this onto the groundbait and mix thoroughly, then allow it to rest for 30 minutes, during this time the water will be absorbed into the groundbait. Then for best results; to remove any lumps and create an even consistency, pass the groundbait through a riddle and it is ready to use.

Alternatively, you can use a drill and whisk, this is now the preferred method of many of our consultants.

When fishing sun and wind may dry the groundbait out a little, to combat this you can cover the mixed groundbait with a damp towel or if it does dry out just add a little more water and mix again.
