Do the Goo - Homestyle! - with Anthony Wood
Anthony Wood runs the HomeMade Boilies page on Facebook, writes a busy blog and has written several books aimed at budget-conscious anglers and those of us that just prefer to make our own baits. You can find his books and e-books at Amazon and at http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/AnthonyWood.
There is lots of hype going round at the minute with goo-type glugs for your baits, so I thought I would give you a simple easy and effective recipe for making your own.
You will need the following ingredients:
100ml Food-Grade or Organic Glycerin
40ml Grape Oil
2tsp Powdered Food Coloring
First you will need to put the 50ml of glycerin in a cup, now add your color and flavoring (color can be adjusted as you go), and also stir in the grape oil.
Slowly add small amounts of corn flour/starch, stirring each addition in thoroughly until you have the required thickness of goo that you want.
Pour your goo into a container with an air tight lid such as a glug pot and store in a cool dry place. You may find a bit of separation occurs during storage so give the container a good shake before you use it.
You can get food-grade vegetable glycerin from any health store or local dug store. Cost is around $4 per 4oz.
Use a flavor dropper or feeding syringe to get the quantities right. You can get these at pet stores (used for feeding baby animals) or restaurant and cooking supply shops.
