Ready Mix is one of the best-kept secrets in the bait world. Some folks mistakenly refer to this ingredient as a poor man’s Robin Red, but that’s doing it a grave injustice! Believe us. The fact is that Ready Mix is widely used by the bait making industry NOT as an alternative to Robin Red but as an ingredient in its own right.
It is of course true that Ready Mix does contain a proportion of Robin Red in the recipe, and it is true that, like Robin Red, it’s actually designed not as a fishing bait additive, but as a colouring agent for cage and aviary show birds, specifically canaries; however, the overall make-up of the bait is markedly different to Robin Red. This gives it a distinctively different smell and taste, one that carp easily recognise as suggesting a "food source" and one that they seem to love the taste of.
