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.

Corker Pop-Ups

Cork dust pop-ups have a number of advantages over other pop-ups.

1) Made with identical ingredients/attractors to free offerings and send out the same food signals.

2) More durable and less prone to ‘theft’ from nuisance fish, crayfish and birdlife!

3) They can be pierced with a baiting needle without losing buoyancy.

4) Brilliant for ‘snowman’ presentations where you can trim down the corker pop up with scissor blades to achieve the perfect level of buoyancy required.

5) Ease of use.

 

Top tip for long term buoyancy

When fishing pop-up rigs in deep water for long periods of time or on waters where bird life can be a problem, drill out a cavity in the corker pop up with an 8mm drill bit then plug it with Gardner Tackle’s cylindrical high density rig foam (yellow). Then pierce the corker pop up on to your hook/rig, making sure the baiting needle goes up through the yellow foam first, then secure with boilie stop. I guarantee you that you can leave your pop up out there for 3-days if needed with no loss of buoyancy! Further to this, in the unlikely event that a diving coot or tufty unknowingly pinches your pop up, you are still fishing a nice visual yellow ‘fake’ bait.
