Steve Renyard – My Krill Mix
31st January 2019
Towards the end of 2018, Steve Renyard made a return to the angling scene and whilst at the ever-popular Linear Fisheries, he absolutely devastated Manor Farm! In this simple step by step guide, Steve shows us the exact mix he used and how to make it.
Step One – With the help of a crusher or a blender, begin to crumb some Krill boilies. Be sure to vary how fine you crumb the baits so to avoid the carp becoming preoccupied on finely crumbed boilie, as this will only prolong the amount of time it takes for the carp to pick up your hookbait.
Step Two – With your crumbed boilie added to your bucket, you can now add a helping of 2.3mm Krill pellets. Along with adding a varied breakdown rate, the pellets will add an element of crunch to the mix which carp find irresistible.
Step Three – Following on from the addition of the pellets, it’s now time to add a dusting of Krill Active Mix. Not only will this coat all the individual food items and give them an extra kick, the Active mix will draw carp down to the lakebed as it falls slowly through the water column.
Step Four – Now for some liquid, a splash of Aqua Amino will help bind all the ingredients together and add some weight to this light mix, this will ensure that the bulk of what you introduce reaches the lakebed. Much like the Active Mix, the Aqua Amino will also pull carp in from afar as it pumps out attraction throughout the surrounding area.
Step Five – Finally, give the contents of your bucket a thorough mix so that all the crumb, pellets and Active Mix are dampened by the liquid. Once you have done this all that is left to do is apply it to your chosen spot along with a well-positioned rig!
Applying this mix can be done in multiple ways; if fishing close in down the margins it can simply be thrown in by hand or precisely placed with the use of a baiting spoon, if you’re fishing out in open water you can either use a spod or spomb to accurately bait up or if you wish, the mix could be compacted into small balls and introduce by hand or even by a catapult.
