Specimen chub like this LOVE our baits!

The Hook Bait Company began by developing River Secret to target chub and we’ve used our knowledge and experience in the years since to create and develop new flavours and recipes which chub will readily eat year-round. Our The Big Cheese Flakey and paste was a revelation for chub anglers – a cheese paste as easy to make as pastry-based mixes, but with a great number of advantages.

Many flavours and baits in our range have accounted for chub over 7lb and we remain the go-to brand for chub anglers looking for quality specialist chub baits.

Whether you are looking for a good bait to catch your first chub, or you’re a seasoned specimen hunter looking for a serious edge to increase your chub PB, the following ranges of baits have proven our best baits for chub fishing:

Big carp like this LOVE our baits!

Carp fishing these days is big business and there is a mind-boggling range of boilies and cap baits on the market. On popular and pressured day ticket venues, offering carp a bait that’s a little bit different can give you an edge. Often the larger, warier fish will slip up to someone offering a bait which is distinctive from the mass-produced boilies and pellets everyone else is using. On all venues, but especially on low-stock, difficult waters, it’s vital to fish with a high quality, nutritionally balanced, highly palatable bait – which is why many serious carpers choose boilies and baits from the Hook Bait Company.

Whether you are looking for a good bait to catch your first carp, or you’re a seasoned specimen hunter looking for a serious edge to increase your carp PB, the following ranges of baits have proven our best baits for carp fishing:

Pop-Up Flakey - buoyant steamed bait designed to imitate breadflake but to be much more resilient. Can be used legering or on a zig rig, and also as a surface fishing bait

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.
