Fished a brand new water yesterday, bright sun and really struggling Along comes the manager's granddaugter and catches a small carp first chuck, I know that that is what fishing is all about, but when I asked what she was using, it was some smelly old corn that someone had left on the bank from the previous day. Makes you wonderOne corn variant I have good results with is fermented corn. I often leave leftover corn in the fridge untill it starts to ferment (bubbly and smells slightly alcoholic, not sour). Its a killer when tench/bream/carp are in the mood for it. Worth a try if you want to experiment, tight lines.
