First up is Fenugreek, first heard about it last year on a carp forum and have been meaning to try it out. On first inspection it doesn’t smell of anything but I have heard great reviews about it from other anglers adding it to there boilie recipes.

You can find it in the dry herb section of any supermarket and is white in colour.

Robin Red

This famous additive is one I’ve yet to use but is a very popular additive used by many pro bait companies such a dynamite baits. Accounting for many captures over the country it’s one try if you haven’t already.
