Bread paste for fishing

Bread paste is one of those baits that fish immediately understand as food Even on a river where the fish rarely see an angler they will take bread paste There are several ways of making this attractive bait, and I would like to tell you mine Use a fresh Tin loaf of bread and cut off all the crusts leaving just the crumb Bread paste is best made from stale bread Put the crumb somewhere warm and let it go stale over a few days Check it now and then, turn it over, until it’s thoroughly dried hard Before you start, give your hands a good wash in water don’t use soap Put the hard stale crumb into a plastic bag and crush it to dust with a rolling pin Add a little water to the bread dust and start to knead I find wetting my hand is a good way to slowly increase the water content Keep adding small amounts of water until a soft smooth paste is made The finished paste should be soft enough for the hook to pull through on the strike This paste will keep in a fridge for a few days, or in a freezer for much longer Stale bread, dust or otherwise, will keep for months, so long as you keep it dry You could put some into a container and keep it in your fishing bag For making paste at the water as and when you need it That’s how I make a plain bread paste If I want a simple cheese paste, then I just use one part bread dust to one part liquidized cheese Mix the two together dry and then add the water Because the cheese is liquidized, it mixes easily with the bread dust and produces a nice smooth paste Thanks for watching Please visit the amateur angling [YouTube] channel or the amateur angling website and blog for more films and articles on fishing
