I thought i might try it this close season on my nearest open canal, but I wondered if anyone had tried the approach in a canal or slow river?

You can make up several batches, complete with different flavours, and keep them in the freezer for when you need them. Great for emergencies or spur off the moment trips.
Sometimes, dead maggots outfish live ones, sometimes it's the other way around. But they certainly do work!
Fantastic Feeder Fishing is an excellent book. Indeed, because of the section of flavourings, I'd rate it as one of the most important fishing book of modern times! Yes, I reckon it's that good!
Archie's also done a book called "Archie Braddock's Magic Book on Bait Flavouring". You can order it from Archie's web site, that also contains a lot of interesting articles. Go to http://www.braddocksbaits.co.uk

Did mess about using live, one cast and dead the next, bigger bream were tempted more by the dead ones by my reckoning at the end of the session.
