We've had numerous discussions on our fishing forums over the years regarding supermarket baits and bait additives for fishing. You know the sort of things I mean; cheap, readily available bits and pieces that catch fish and can be obtained from Tescos.
Well, I spotted another such product the other day....and you get '5 for the price of 1' with this deal!
I was having a nice hot chocolate and egg muffin in great company at Costa Coffee when a visit to the counter for a top-up resulted in me catching sight of these out of the corner of my eye...
Sold as a product to flavour your coffee, this pack of five 50ml bottles cost me just £5.95. At just over a quid a bottle, that's a good deal for so much maggot....err, I mean 'coffee' flavouring.
Crème Brulée, Gingerbread, Praline, Caramel and Roasted Hazelnut – these syrups should be perfect for maggots and even groundbaits. I know one guy, at least, who would probably add them to his boilie mixes (he's already published a Christmas dinner boilie recipe on his Home Made Boilies page on Facebook - http://www.facebook.com/HomeMadeBoilies )
So, if you fancy spicing up your baits and giving them a Christmas feel, pop along to Costa Coffee.
I bet you never thought you'd read that on a fishing website.
