  • The Original Red Herring Base Mix


The Red Herring is a combination of fish and crstacean meals with additional enhancers including crustacean compound, green-lipped mussel extract, betaline and the awesome Haith's Robin Red.

Initially formulated for Solar by Gary Harrow and friends who needed a predominately fishmeal bait, but with a higher nutritional level and powerful feed-inducing stimulants.

The Red Herring has been used to devestating effect on the country's hardest waters and most sought-after fish.

Day Trippin'


A quick, day-only session for team member Ignace de Roeck has seen him land carp of 33lb and 29lb from one of his syndicate lakes in very quick order.

Targeting a 25-hectare, deep water that is known for being quite tricky Ignace targeted a shallow, margin spot, presenting 20mm Red Herring hook baits on size 4 Stronghold 101 hooks over a scattering of matching freebies. Using the session mostly as reccy trip and a brief escape from working life, it was mid afternoon when the first rod burst into life.
After a powerful fight Ignace slipped his net under a 33lb mirror. Less than an our later he was in again, this time a 29lb plated mirror being the culprit, which is a fish Ignace also caught last year.

Third Fifty In 5 Months


Solar Tackle team member Julien Porquet has landed this impressive chunk of a mirror that tipped the scales at 50lb. No stranger to big carp, this is the Calais-based angler’s third 50lb+ carp since May of this year.

Targeting a lake in East France on a 3-day session, Julien presented an Originals Red Herring 15mm bottom bait tipped with an 11mm Club Mix pop-up over a bed of Red Herring boilies. The slow, steady take came at  4am after the rod had been in position for 24 hours and after a long, heavy fight, this prize rolled in to the waiting net.
