Special is the most versatile groundbait in the whole of the Van den Eynde range. Basically it can be used by itself as a fine, cloud groundbait containing very little food value, or it can be added to any other groundbait to lighten the mixture. On canals, I use Special by itself mixed dry to create a slowly falling cloud, or over-wetted to make a superb slop mix that's ideal for gudgeon when I need to feed minimal amounts. Equal amounts of Special and Van den Eynde Supercup is a brilliant summer groundbait, especially for skimmers. If the water is over four feet deep, I'll also add a little sticky Van den Eynde Secret to take it down faster to the bottom where it will 'explode' to form a carpet over which the fish will feed confidently. It's also good for bleak fishing, mixed dry. IDEAL USES The finest and lightest of all Van Den Eynde groundbaits, it's a match anglers mix for use on its own only on special occasions. Having a very light texture it's the mix for surface feeding fish which are attracted to a cloud of regularly introduced groundbait. It can be added to any other Van Den Eynde mix to produce a cloud effect, making it a good bag to carry at all times. Indeed Special is the groundbait Marcel uses when ever he needs an instant cloud. PROVEN RECIPE SUGGESTIONS 1. 2 parts Special, 1 part Damp Leam. For use when the fish won't come right to the surface, but are taking on the drop 2 or 3 feet down especially bleak. 2. 1 Special, 1 Secret. For smallish fish in water upto 6ft deep.Gives attractive cloud effect in bottom half of water. 3. 1 Special, 1 Kastaar. Feeder fishing for bream on hard days. ( Mild winter days etc.) MIXING INSTRUCTIONS 1. For best results, place groundbait and additives in a round mixing bowl. 2. Blend the dry ingredients thoroughly before adding water. 3. Add water slowly whilst vigorously stirring the mix together. This procedure is made easier with a sponge, which allows even distribution of water. 4. The use of a round groundbait bowl means there are no corners to trap and leave dry groundbait. 5. When the mix begins to appear adequately dampened set it aside for 5-10 minutes. 6. You should find after 10 minutes the mix will require a little more water before it's ready for use. 7. If you are using damp leam add it to the mixture now, and not earlier.
