Hemp Oil is the pure oil extracted from hempseed. It is extracted via a cold pressing procedure which limits any denaturing during manufacture. Rich in vitamins, minerals and a fantastic source of Omega 3, 6 and 9 oils, it is probably best known for its antioxidant properties in the health-food industry. Quite handily, though, it’s also something carp just love the taste of!
Although it is often described as a carp attractor, it is debatable whether any oils can ‘attract’ carp in that sense. After all, only substances that are soluble in water are detectable by the carp. That said, utilised within anything the carp may actually ingest, the taste can really turn the carp on. With a lovely nutty aroma and taste, it easy to see why. We recommend inclusion rates of anything up to 20ml per kilo in baits. For use within stick mixes or on pellets or floaters, this will be dependent on how much the particular product can take on, so can never really be overdone.
A quick tip is to give your floaters a coat of this very thin oil. Not only will they flatten the surface area you are fishing, but carp just love that nutty taste, making your floaters stand out from the rest on a busy water. (Does not melt PVA)
