Boilies are the most popular carp bait around. They are extremely versatile, coming in a limitless range of flavours and scents. They are also very effective (i.e., carp love 'em) and most carpers rely on them as an integral part of their carp fishing armoury.
The tackle shops, and on-line angling merchants provide a huge range of boilies in a countless array of colours, sizes and flavours.
But why give them all your money? Making your own boilies for carp angling is simple, effective and will save you money. It is also great fun and brings you a step closer to the fish. In the same way that the best fly fishers tie their own flies and the best predator anglers catch their own bait, the best carp fisherman make their own boilies.
This site will give you step by step instructions for making your own boilies at home.
