Over a number of years Gaz and a few of his closest angling colleagues have developed a small range of incredibly attractive hi-viz pop ups. Combining a selected blend of potent flavours and attractors with a high level of a vivid bait dye they have created these ‘Northern Specials’ (‘I.B.s’) that, due to their unprecedented level of success, have gained an almost mythical status. Tip: To really increase the potency of your Northern Specials, give them a coating of the supplied booster liquid, let it dry in and then repeat this as many times as necessary. This gives them a huge boost of attraction, making them simply irresistible. Important notice about buoyancy: Soaking NS1s in liquids or excessively or repeatedly adding liquids to them will reduce their buoyancy. We strongly advise that baits are given a light coating and are fully dried before use. This can be repeated to increase their attraction, but the more times this is repeated, the more their buoyancy is likely to be reduced. It is essential to fully dry them before use if the original level of buoyancy is required.
