John has been carp fishing for over 45 years. He has a wealth of experience and unrivalled depth of knowledge in all aspects of bait, not only for carp but also for other species like barbel.
John started the very first commercial bait company called Bait ’78 in 1978 and he is rightly known as a real specialist when it comes to bait. Over the years he has formulated and developed some of carp fishing’s most effective flavours and base mixes. Some have become real classics like Plum, AlaSalar and Bio Shellfish mix. John is just as enthusiastic about bait now as he always was and he is still eagerly researching, developing and testing new ingredients. In fact, I know for a fact that he has a couple of stunning new products up his sleeve, so watch this space.
