Rod Hutchinson – Winter Flavors

Rod Hutchinson – LEGEND MEGASPICE is ideal for the winter months.

Just a quick tip on winter flavors. I really like to spice it up in the winter and have found a lot of success in doing this. I know a lot of folks like the Rod Hutchinson Megaspice during the winter time. This is a pretty strong flavor and I do not add any other spices with it. I usually use one tiger with a piece of neon fake corn or with hard corn. Rod Hutchinson also has some alcohol based hi-leakage flavors in the range that are ideal for the winter months as well.

Give it a try….You will not be disappointed!

Head over to Big Carp Tackle and take a look at the full range of Rod Hutchinson baits and flavors.

Rod Hutchinson Bait & Flavors

Rod Hutchinson Legend Flavors – Tiger Nut Hook Baits – MEGASPICE

NGT 6 Pot Green Glug Bag


I have been looking for a quality bag not only for glugs but to put my jars of corn and tiger nuts in. The best part about this bag is you can lay them down to see the actual flavors on the labels. I have to say this bag is the same quality as the ones of a different name brand that are more expensive.

I was really impressed with this as the handle is really strong and has foam padding. The zippers are quality on this as well. As you can see in the pictures on the inside cover there are slots for baiting needles and the jars of bait fit very well. I have a second one of these and a few friends have also purchased for the same use.

This comes with six clear glug pots which I am not using but are nice as well. All in all, a very simple but nice piece of kit!
