Spiced meat

All types of meat absorb flavours well and one of the most popular enhancers are spicy ones. Turmeric and various curry powder recipes work wonders with barbel, chub, tench and carp. Try dusting meat after you’ve cut or punched it into the right size for feeding or using on the hook. Apart from flavouring the meat, this creates a fine enticing cloud of extra flavour as your bait sinks.
