Spomb The range 2014
Tue 08 April 14
For all of you that have been in a coma for the past four years there has been a revolution in bait dispensing that has well and truly made a home in the majority of specialist anglers carryalls. These superb bait dispensers are the brain child of Kent based Bryan & Judith Houghton, and they pride themselves on supplying a product that is designed and manufactured in the United Kingdom. From its humble beginnings the SPOMB has become arguably more popular than the traditional spod based on these critical facts. They offer the angler assured bait delivery to the spot every time, eliminating spillage during casting, that as we all know is common place when spodding particle or pellet mixes. The SPOMB also gives you an instant bait delivery, meaning as soon as it hits the water, the bait is released immediately reducing time spent laying down a huge bed of feed. They also offer the angler unrivalled accuracy even in strong cross winds and as they are 100% buoyant they can be retrieved in seconds with very little surface commotion.
Originally designed for the Carp angler, the SPOMB soon found favour amongst the big bream and tench angling legions (myself included). Then Bryan & Judith soon realised that there was a market for smaller versions to cater to the needs of the day ticket course and even the match anglers who target carp bream and tench on larger commercial fisheries. So with the original SPOMB being too large for this type of angling as a beefed up rod was required to deliver these heavy loads of feed. So they released the Midi and mini options that can be attached straight to feeder, specialist or carp rod and cast out on reasonably light gear. This has now open an entirely new market place for this excellent product with match anglers fishing the pellet bomb finding the SPOMB to be the most accurate way of introducing a large bed of pellets accurately to keep the fish in a more controlled area, unlike firing them in with a catapult which spreads you bait over a much larger area.
The SPOMB can be used to dispense seed particles, groundbaits, boilies (of all sizes), pellets (all sizes), corn, maize, maggots, casters chopped meat and worm, pretty much any bait used in modern angling situations. I’ve even seen pike anglers using the Large SPOMB to put chopped fish pieces over their spots for accurate feeding on venues where baitboats are banned. The assured precise delivery of baits to your spots every time, without the spillage associated with the traditional spod has made the SPOMB the choice of all novice and seasoned anglers alike including several members of the ukcarpangler team.
