Available exclusively from the Hook Bait Company, Flakey cleverly combines the looks and appeal of breadflake with the resilience and robustness of a boilie. These individually crafted pieces of flake made from our HNV paste mix then steamed to lock in the flavour for optimum attraction. At last you can trot a piece of flake or fish it on the bottom without fear of the bait being nibbled away by nuisance fish! You can fish-on knowing that your bait will be there even if you miss a tentative bite, no more reeling in to attach a fresh piece of flake!
The bait is pliable enough to mount directly on the hook but each piece is pre-drilled for mounting on a hair. As the baits are steamed rather than boiled, the flavour and attractor levels are much higher making them ideal for attracting chub for example when trotting. You can nip off pieces to change the shape of the flake and let out a bit more flavour. Tremendous for tempting the chub in the harshest of conditions in conjunction with our ‘The Big Cheese’ Gloop.
As with our Original Flakey, we also offer a pop-up version as well. As with all our baits, the pop-up flakey is available in all of our flavours in a mix of colours to suit all possible light conditions. The pop-up flakey can be used in a multitude of angling conditions, be it popped up a few inches from the bottom or fished as a unique bait for zig rigging or surface floater fishing. The fish will certainly not be used to seeing bread flake in the middle of the lake, and this could well be the edge you have been looking for.
