Tares are a type of pulse similiar to peas or beans that are black in colour when dry. When prepared by soaking and cooking in water they soften and become various shades of brown. Traditionally, used alongside cooked hemp, this bait can be used to exceptional effect to extract the best quality fish from your swim. Tares are particularly attractive to Tench, Carp and quality Roach, that said all non predatory coarse fish can be caught on them. Particularly good bait for staying on the hook, being around the size of a 4mm pellet, Tares are much tougher than soft pellets. Give Tares a try when a fishing venue has been heavily fished by pellets and save time re-baiting the hook when you’re catching quickly.
