    This review was written by one of my readers on my Facebook page... My name is Dave Cox and I have just become the proud owner of the new paperback edition of BEGINNER’S GUIDE TO HOME MADE BAITS by ANTHONY WOOD. The first thing noticed about the book is its handy A5 size and a very impressive cover, with the artwork making it look a very professional book. The way Anthony has set out the book is excellent and very easy to follow. After the introduction the book is laid out in steps, with the first part being called the science bit, don’t let this title put you off, after looking at it I found it very interesting and vital if you intend to make your own baits as it shows how to put ingredients together to make a perfectly balanced mix, of your own design. Secondly, Anthony has put a chapter together on base mixes and looking at them it seems he has covered about every eventuality. In part three Anthony touches on additives and although he has given a number of very good ones, it leaves... More > the door open to stretch your own imagination. Anthony has also used the book to explain texture, whether you want your bait instant or long-term. I will not go into this as it is explained, in the book, what is best for the type of fishing you do. Next there are the boilies, how they are made and then 50 of Anthony’s favourite recipes. There are also chapters on how to make paste, jelly bait, groundbait, stick mix and good old floater cake. All in all for a beginner’s guide Anthony has covered most eventualities of basic bait making. On a personal note I think this book is a must for anyone considering making their own bait and indeed it is worth a look at by the more experienced bait makers. What has attracted me to the book is its easy flow and simple to understand. Nothing has been made complicated and with a bit of practise many readers would become proficient bait makers in their own right. I would just like to take this opportunity to thank Anthony for what I can see is a winner, when it comes to making my own baits, and I will be waiting eagerly for volume two.  < Less
