Many of our Field Testers and Consultants have landed barbel over 15lb on our baits – as have lots of our customers! On popular rivers like the Trent, Severn and Wye, our baits can be relied upon to produce the goods in all seasons. View some of the many barbel captures on our baits here.

The popularity of barbel fishing on rivers is increasing year on year; as is the average size of fish in many rivers. Whether you’re fishing a popular and pressured day ticket venue or a quiet syndicate stretch, offering a barbel 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, and in all seasons, it fills anglers with confidence knowing they’re fishing with a high quality, nutritionally balanced, highly palatable bait – which is why many serious barbel anglers choose boilies and baits from the Hook Bait Company.

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

We designed our Tincaberry baits from scratch (in conjunction with Drennan Cup winner, Iain McDonald) specifically to catch tench and bream. And boy did they hit the mark! The reputation of Tincaberry is growing each year and it has already accounted for tench to over 12lb! Tincaberry has quickly established itself as one of the finest tench baits on the market, and is used & endorsed by many members of the Tenchfishers specimen group.

Tincaberry boilies are available right down to 10mm in size and we have pop-ups available too.

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.

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.

The Big Cheese range - cheese paste base mix specially designed for catching specimen chub. Also availiable as paste, chops, Flakey, Pop-up Flakey and GloopCheese paste is widely recognised as one of the fundamental baits for catching chub in the colder months. Grated cheddar and blue cheese are the preferred cheese and are often bound together with the inclusion of pastry. The downside to using pastry is that the fat content causes the cheese paste to become firmer in cold water making ‘striking through’ the paste on a bite, a bit hit and miss.

The Big Cheese

The Big Cheese is a soluble milk protein base that has been formulated to enhance the pulling power of the cheese itself, without the need for adding pastry. The Big Cheese is supplied with our own The Big Cheese flavour which you add to the base mix and grated cheese to give it a supple texture that stays soft even in the coldest conditions. Buy The Big Cheese range below.

Check out our video below with Christian Barker’s demonstrating the process of mixing the perfect mix.

New Additions to our The Big Cheese range for your convenience is our ready made paste, 12mm chops (available in 250ml pots and 1kg bags) and The Big Cheese Flakey to go along with our old faithful The Big Cheese and Garlic Original Flakey in both bottom bait and pop up .
