Well, here we have Landon Pepper with a new PB ! Again !.. 25lb this time.. Landon and his dad have been fishing a reservoir and baited up every night for 7 days with Catalyst 15mm boilies with hemp and tigers coated in the new cloudburst particle syrup and catalyst particle syrup, then dusted the mix with the Catalyst stick mix. Fishing both rods over the baited area this carp fell to a washed out yellow popup sprayed with Catalyst booster spray.

This time a 42lb 12oz Ghosty, caught over the Catalyst pillows and a size 4 SF Curve on a home made catalyst cork ball, made with the Catalyst Hookbait kit. Charlie was fishing a margin at 45 yards when this took off with his cork ball !

Ross Beaumont with one of 5 fish recently in a session at Millfield Pool in West Yorkshire. Ross was using The Catalyst Natural Pop-Ups fished over Catalyst boilies which had been soaked in the new Cloud Burst Particle and Pellet syrup..
