“Before I signed for Old Ghost, I was confident that I was getting involved with a forward thinking company, with some great products – but after fishing with the products over the last few months I have to say that they are even better than even I expected.”
These were the words of Daiwa and Old Ghost backed rod, Will Raison, following a great run of form on Old Ghost baits.
most recent victory came at Gold Valley, when a mix that I have
pioneered for fishing down the edge came up trumps in grand style.
be honest, the early part of my day was quite slow, and going into the
last two hours of the match I had just a couple of carp in my net – then
my edge line came to life!
I fed the swim with a mix of equal
parts Old Ghost Specimen Carp, F1 Match and Maggot Meal. This was
introduced loose with a handful of dead maggots thrown in for good
measure. When the fish turned up, it was quite literally one every drop
in, and I ended the match with 18 carp for a weight of 145lb – which
was enough to win the match.
If you are after a mix for
targetting carp, then I strongly suggest giving this a go. It is
particularly effective when used in conjunction with dead maggots – an
The difference between Old Ghost and a lot
of other bait manufacturers is that they understand the science behind
why a bait works, so when I ask them to produce a specific product, they
have a good idea of how to do so. The new range of mini match boilies
that are about to come to market are a good example of this. I think a
lot of anglers will be switching to them once they hit the shops.
be honest, I couldn’t be happier with the Old Ghost products that I
have seen up to now, and am enjoying working with the company in
developing new ideas for the future.
They are a switched on
company who listen to their consultants and are keen produce stuff that
really works - rather than just makes a profit. I couldn't be more
excited about the future!"
