European Customers

Many carp anglers across Europe have been astounded by the quality, ‘catchability’ and presentation of the Essential Baits range compared to other baits they have used in the past. We have received reports of some unbelievable captures of big carp from difficult waters due to the fact that Essential Baits offer a much higher level of quality than they have ever seen before.

Most UK anglers now accept that Essential Baits are the best quality food baits available, but now anglers throughout Europe are slowly beginning to realise that they can use a much higher quality bait to improve their catch rates.

Don't forget we offer good discounts on bulk orders, which will help offset the cost of shipping. For example a customer in Holland can purchase 25kg of boilies delivered to their door for about £9.00 per kilo delivered! Please see table below for shipping costs and if your country is not listed please contact us for a quote.

For further information you can email: mike@essentialbaits.co.uk
 

Delivery destination up to 29kg
Belgium, France, Luxembourg, Netherlands and Germany £15.00
Czech Republic, Denmark, Italy, Spain, Slovakia and Austria £20.00
Hungary, Poland, Sweden, Portugal and Slovenia £25.00

Note: Each additional box is the same price, for example, if you wanted two boxes sent to Germany (up to 58kg) this would be £30.00 shipping costs.


Unfortunately we are unable to send our freezer bait range to non UK destinations, however, many overseas customers use our ESL (extended shelf life) boilies with fantastic results. These can be put into your freezer on arrival and treated in exactly the same way as our freezer bait range.

For smaller orders such as flavours, additives, liquids etc, please contact the Tackle Box in Kent at  www.tacklebox.co.uk who offer very competitive postal rates to Europe for smaller items.

The benefits of Pellets

Team Essential member Lee Carpenter with one of his many big fish. Underwater attraction and stimulation plays a big role in Lee's success and pellets are one of the best ways to achieve this.
 
The use of pellets as a carp fishing bait has been well documented over the years, but their success isn’t surprising when you begin to consider just how many young carp have been fed on them during their early years. Most carp will instantly recognise pellets as a viable food source, and the fact that they break down quicker than boilies means that they release their food signals more efficiently. This will usually encourage smaller fish into the area first, but will often trigger a feeding response from the carp shortly afterwards.

Pellets are also an extremely versatile bait, that can be introduced in a variety of different ways. One of the best methods is to use them inside mini PVA bags with a few crushed boilies. The full package is no bigger than a tea bag, but leaves a nice little pile of food perfectly presented and difficult for the carp to ignore!

Larger beds of pellets can also be very effective, particularly on heavier stocked venues when trying to create competition for food. On lower stocked venues however, a few pouch loads of pellets sparsely scattered around your baited rig will undoubtedly increase attraction and keep the carp searching for food. This method will always keep a food trace in the area and increase the chances of pulling fish into the baited zone.
