Report Are we worrying about the wrong things? in Beginning Carping Posted March 21, 2016 Recently on the Forum, somebody started a thread titled " flavors" that had me thinking a lot about it. The member started the post by asking what were some of the flavors that people preferred at certain times of the year. it didn't take long for members from all over the country to list their top choices. I wont bore you with all the responses but there were manyyyyyyy. My point is that everything catches carp at some point. By everything, I mean reasonable flavors .... peach, pineapple, fruity, halibut, vanilla etc... And.... hook baits are the same. Maize, Sweetcorn, boilies, imitations, chickpeas, puffs. I know this is nothing new here but in my opinion... use what works for you at that given time. Use what you have. Don't go chasing the belief that Crayfish Boilies made by XYZ Bait Co. is the best in summer or whiskey flavored maize out fishes everything in the Fall. It just aint so.... Confidence is the key and presentation for sure. Carp fishing can be as hard or as easy as you wish to make it.
