We’ve covered a number of bait and hookbait rolling methods from spring and through the summer months, but with winter just around the corner, we’re now going to take a look at a very seasonal hookbait: High Attract Pop-Ups.

Yes these pop-ups will work very well throughout the year, and in a number of fishing situations - but it is during the colder months where tactics such as single hookbait fishing come to the fore - and your reliance on a small amount of bait but a mass of attraction is at its highest.

As you’ll see we’ve chosen some classic high attract fruit flavours and yellow colour, but there’s nothing to say you couldn’t go for a fish or spice-based combo. What’s more, we’ve also rolled the paste into both round and dumbell shaped baits – to easily add another hookbait option.

TOP TIP – DON’T MIX YOUR BULK FLAVOURS…

When your recipe includes multiple flavours or liquid additives it’s easy to transfer the syringe residue from one bottle to the next and end-up with odd flavours. To avoid this have a glass of water handy and pull some water through the syringe a couple of times to keep it clean between flavours.
