ive seen some fish sauce reduced in tesco, its anchovy based, is it any good as a pellet/groundbait additive.

I bought a bottle a while ago. Whilse some rate the stuff, personally I found no difference with it added or not over a 3 month trial.
Bait and additives is all about confidence (yours) if by adding something you believe it makes a difference then use it.

The strength of flavour is nothing to worry about. Punping into expanders is a good idea. Also try liquidising a tin of cat meat. just add some water, give it a spin them put into pump with pellets. Absolute winner!! Use the left over liquid to moisten any ground bait used. One tin of cat meat is enough to do a whole bag of pellets.

If you want something a bit more pleasant to pump into expanders you could do worse than follow my example and try strawberry jelly. It smells far more pleasant than cat food and the pellets work well.

I use it mixed into the eggs when making boilies, great stuff! Also worth a try is Thai shrimp paste in a tub, Carp & Cats love the stuff!

What does Nam Pla mean RW???:j

I'm sure you'll be able to provide the correct translation though ;)

I was in no doubt you were the man to fill in the blanks N.K. :)
I've been using this sauce for a few years now, I like it even in winter I use it in paste as it soaks into the pellet better than an oil making it easier to mix, I see it as very soluble and quickly leaking off a flavour trail.
