The best baits to catch specimen carp, from the Hook Bait Company. Best carp bait & boilies for carp 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:

Original Flakey - steamed bait designed to imitate breadflake but to be much more resilient

A true HBC original! Original Flakey was designed for the sole purpose of giving Darren confidence in knowing that his bread flake bait would not be nibbled away by minnows whilst trying to catch chub.

Available exclusively from The Hook Bait Company, Flakey cleverly combines the looks and appeal of breadflake with the resilience and robustness of a boilie. 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!

Made from our Milk Pro HNV boilie mix, each piece is individually crafted by hand to give it the flake look. The baits are then steamed so that the flavour is locked in and the Flakey is very durable. You can change the size of the Flakey by nipping off pieces with your finger nails which also lets out more of the flavour.

Available in either standard Cheese & Garlic or any of our flavour range, these individually crafted pieces of flake are steamed to lock in the flavour, for optimum attraction. Supplied in a handy re-sealable pot, The baits are shelf life too!

The Big Cheese Gloop - the perfect bait boosting accompanyment to FlakeyThe 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.

Flakey is also available in a pop-up version, Pop-Up Flakey.

Remember, only The Hook Bait Company Flakey is THE ORIGINAL Flakey! Accept no imitations.
