Short extract from a google:

"When I was getting more into making homemade baits in the late Seventies and early Eighties there were a few readymade base mixes available and these were rich in amino acids and other natural feeding triggers especially and were highly successful. Duncan Kay Slyme baits and the famous Black Magic among others were available. Last week I was making a special high protein paste based on various milk and marine proteins with low levels of seedy bird foods and very low levels of 3 flavours containing a tiny amount of solvent base and packed with natural esters"

Dunno if that helps Question

I should have also said before that, good post Kevin, always interesting to learn how the modern baits we perhaps take for granted first came into the carp scene.
Cheers

I wont even profess to knowing anything of the early days in carp fishing,being only a young buck.
Do feel I missed out on some great years,seems as modern anglers,were all a bit spoilt with the vast array of baits,gadgets,equipment and access to so many waters we can readily get hold of,and onto.
Cheers

it was certainly very difficult back then
i know Ken and stotty would both agree and say gaining the fundamental basic knowledge to get started in carping especially as it was a world shrounded in secretcy and anglers sculking in the shadows with there secret methods and baits
it was frustrating trying to find out stuff but boy!! when you did
you thought you,de found the holy grail but it was fun trying the latest tactics out but in all honestly by the time we found out it had been around for a few years probably


its was all them pioneering angler during the 60s 70sand 80,s that have made angling what it is today and i,m glad i was just around then.

but as i like to say angling is a life time of learning
