Bargain Marukyu Krill (SFA 400 & SFA 410)

Special price of only £6.99 for the SFA 410 and £8.25 for the SFA 400 surely this is too good to miss!!

(write up by match fishing)
With Marukyu starting to take the bait market by storm, Joe Carass decided to take a look at one of its most popular products… krill!

Marukyu is still a fairly new name on the UK bait market. The baits are clearly very good but, never one to follow fads, I must admit to being fairly sceptical about them at first.

I mean, I have always been of the opinion that as long as the bait we use is fresh and good quality and the fish are in front of you, then you will catch them!

My opinion has changed somewhat of late, however, after going on several features with Jamie Masson, and also noticing the continuing list of results that Andy Kinder has been getting. With both of these top anglers using Marukyu products I felt I really needed to take a closer look.

If one product from Marukyu has really taken off then it has to be the krill baits. Now, for anyone who hasn’t seen or heard of krill before it is a type of sea crustacean that is incredibly high in protein and other goodness, that carp in particular find irresistible. Marukyu was quick to realise just how effective krill was for fishing baits and developed two products that make the most of this awesome fish catcher!

The first product in the range, and one that has become hugely popular, is SFA 400. This is a very fine pink powder – the pink colour is derived from the krill’s natural coloration – that comes in 400g bags. Although this is not a huge amount, it is very potent stuff and you don’t need much on whatever bait you wish to flavour. The powder has a very strong smell but because it is a natural ingredient you can’t really overdo it on your bait, as you can with some artificial additives.

But what can you use SFA 400 on? Well, some of you may have heard of the krilled-maggot method that has literally taken The Glebe fishery apart. Anglers are killing several pints of maggots, dusting them with the krill powder and then freezing them. This draws the flavour into the maggots and they have become one of the best carp catchers around. Krill-coated meat has also been a winner and to do this you simply need to dust some powder straight on to your meat.

The krill powder is also something that I hold close to my heart because I recently won the Kamasan British Open while using it. On that day I used micros around the Method, but instead of using Horlicks to bind my pellets I dusted my pellets with krill powder and EFG 100 to make a very sticky but very attractive mix. It worked an absolute treat and I can vouch for the effectiveness of the SFA 400 krill powder.

The other product in the krill range is the SFA 410. This is a concentrated krill extract in liquid form – very strong smelling and very attractive to the fish! This bait has many uses but ideally it should be added to the water that you mix groundbait or paste with. It is also great for soaking corn in and works well when added to a pellet pump for preparing expander pellets.

So the effectiveness of these baits is no longer in doubt! They have been catching loads of fish and are becoming increasingly popular now that anglers are realising their effectiveness. The one downside to the products is their price, however the quality of the ingredients used necessitates the high price tag!

Despite my initial reservations about Marukyu and its products, I am now totally sold on the ones that I have used! And I urge you to give these two krill products a go because you won’t be disappointed!

Stillwater BPX 12ft Carp Rods HOT BUY

Quite how three carbon carp rods can be bought for under £100 is beyond me, but Chapmans Angling have managed it with their Stillwater BPX range.

These rods cost a mere £39.99 each, with a three-rod bundle costing just £99.99. And that’s with a £29.99 three-rod holdall thrown in! 
For that price you don’t expect a premier built rod, but you’ll be impressed. The BPX rods have the looks of a high-end rod, along with the current fashion for minimal livery and fuss.

The slim, high modulus blank, coupled with a stylish matt black finish and abbreviated handle, also goes some ways to making you think that you are handling something costing a lot more, helped along by a laser etched butt cap and quality SiC guides.

A progressive through action offers suitable casting abilities, combined with the fish playing action that will minimise the chances of hook pulls at close-quarters. There are two 12ft models to choose from, a 2.75lb for general carping applications and a 3lb design for heavier loads.

Peanut Worms now at Chapmans Angling

It's been a long time since we have seen anything as exciting introduced to the UK sea fishing live bait market here at Chapmans Angling Hull Store, and we are sure the live Peanut Worm is about to become a very popular bait among sea anglers!

A hot new live bait for sea anglers - the Peanut Worm!
What are Peanut Worms I hear you ask? Sipunculans, or Peanut Worms, are a type of Lugworm, and are found throughout most of the world's oceans. There are an estimated 300 to 500 species of Peanut Worms, however, many of them are small and as they tend to be found in tough environments, such as the insides of rocks, and as such these small species are not of much interest to the angler. However the much larger Sipunculus nudus, found in all oceans from intertidal zones to 900 m depth, is the best known species of Peanut Worm and the one sought by sea anglers. Common and easily collected along the Atlantic and Mediterranean coasts of Europe, it has been studied for many decades by developmental biologists, physiologists, and biochemists. The surface of its trunk has a checked appearance resulting from the intersection of the longitudinal and circular muscles, and has an iridescent pink or sepia colour. They are found all around the coast of the British Isles and are sub tidal - living from the low water mark down to depths of hundreds of metres.

So what makes Peanut Worms such a potent bait? Peanut Worms are the vacuums of the ocean, they suck up bacteria and algae which creates a natural chemical reaction that generates a shiny sparkling skin in the day and a faint phosphorescent glow at night. More importantly the Peanut Worm is loaded with amino acids that attract fish like bees to nectar. They have two rectangular muscles which create an attractive movement and which also makes them a much tougher bait that lives longer once baited. This allows a longer period of time, compared to other similar baits like Ragworm or Lug, for fish to track down the worm before the angler has to re-bait.
Peanut worms are available in four sizes!
In France, Italy, Spain and other European countries they don't have the fish stocks that we do in the UK, and as such Peanut Worms are the bait of choice due to their ability to attract fish. French and Italian anglers call these worms 'Bibi' and in Spain they are known as 'Tita'. Here in the UK very few anglers have heard of Peanut Worms and those that have, have found them unobtainable, as a result anglers have had to settle for less. Now for the first time Chapmans Abgling can supply live Peanut Worms in absolutely perfect condition to your door step.

Our Peanut Worms are supplied live which means that degradation to skin and loss of juices is minimal unlike many "fresh" or frozen baits. This allows them to stay on the hook better and provide movement and body juices which are extremely attractive to fish like Bass, Cod, Pollack, Flounder and many more saltwater species. The best way to rig live Peanut worms is by threading them on to a Bait Needle from head to tail to preserve the juices, and always use a suitably sized Aberdeen style hook. Large Peanut Worms can be cut lengthwise with scissors and used just like you would with fish or squid strips.
Live Peanut Worms - delivered to your door!
