Red is a very popular bait colour, after all, red maggots have been best sellers for many years. I can also remember catching well on canals using red pinkies and squatts, baits that are rarely used these days. Then there was bloodworm and jokers, bright red midge larvae, which in my early match fishing career were very important baits for getting bites on rock hard venues. So, all this got me thinking. A lot of fishing these days entails using pellets, so why not try the red approach here too? After much experimenting, I have found that Dynamite Robin Red feed pellets work wonders on both natural and commercial fisheries, particularly if you damp them down a bit the day before use. Apart from softening the pellets, pre-wetting also makes them break down quicker in the water, which fish like bream, carp and tench find very attractive. Lately I have been combining Robin Reds with the new Dynamite Red Krill Durable Hookers, resulting in some interesting bagging sessions.
