Hi guys,

Do you usually just add some kind of attractant to a mieliebom when catching barbel or is it simply, adding a day old chicken (or any bait) and waiting for a bite?

I am looking for a good way to attract barbel to your feed? blood maybe?

Any tips would be helpful!

Dip your bait with Scott's Emulsion Cod Liver Oil (Regular type get it at clicks) and some ox blood powder, you will not be disappointed.

I second the cod liver oil.
I read somewhere on sealine that epol anchovy flavour works as well. Haven't tried it yet.

There are far less disgusting, more effective and more fun ways to catch barbel you know... look into the popping technique.
