Boilies are the bait that perhaps causes the most discussion among anglers. Every carp angler has his own favourite boilie flavour, size and taste and swears by it. Boilies have grown from nothing in a few decades to become the number one carp bait for anglers throughout Europe. These 'dough balls' are ideally suited for carp fishing because of their ability to stay on the hooklink for a long time on the hair. Where earlier baits often had to be changed or were so soft that they fell off the hook after some time, with one boilie you can fish for days on end. A real godsend for many carp anglers and the arrival of the boilie caused a lot of developments, and more importantly, great catches in the carp world.
It's not unusual if you can't see the wood for the trees when you want to buy boilies. The choice is really huge. Boilies are first of all made in different sizes, often from about 8mm in diameter up to 30mm in diameter. The most common size of boilies is usually about 15mm or 20mm. Besides these round balls, you also have the dumbbell variety. This 'boilie' has the shape of a cushion and is therefore different from what the fish are already familiar with. In some cases, such a shape can make the difference.
The choice of flavours in boilies is absolutely enormous. Every flavour you can think of has already been incorporated into a bait. In general, you can divide the boilie flavours into three categories: sweet, fishy and spicy. The best flavour? There is a lot of debate about that!
