We would like to take this opportunity to say a huge well done to Bank BUG Consultant Sean Kelly on his amazing capture of Abbey Lakes’ largest resident carp in the shape of Humpy at a fantastic, healthy weight of 76lb. After gaining a VIP winter ticket, Sean has been fishing on the famous Abbey complex armed with a selection of BAITCRAFT T1 products from the Bank BUG stable and has accounted for two fish over 60lb, no less than eight 50’s and we’ve honestly lost count of fish he’s caught under the magical 50lb mark, and to top it all off, Humpy from Fox Lake at over 75lb (caught 3rd March 2016). We’re sure you’ll agree, that’s some result for a winter campaign.


Bank BUG is pleased to announce, as of January 2016, we will be the official supplier of Baitcraft baits. This will include the awesome T-1, Super K and Snowball flavours. After long discussions with Baitcraft owner and close friend Mark McKenna, Bank BUG finally sealed the deal to bring Baitcraft back! Christian Cox, Managing Director of Bank BUG commented: ‘Mark has recently moved on to pastures new after producing some of the best baits to ever hit the carp scene. What Mark doesn’t know about bait isn’t worth knowing. He’s been heavily involved in the Receptor-1 range; currently available from Bank BUG and the results are testament to Mark’s knowledge and forward thinking on bait. When we heard he was leaving the bait making industry to concentrate on a new business venture, we begun talks immediately. Bank BUG will gain access to ‘original’ recipes and suppliers over the next few weeks, ingredient by ingredient, the baits will be rolled exactly as Mark did from day one, no corners will be cut and no stone left unturned. Mark will have the final approval on all baits before mass production. Baitcraft boilies have always carried a smell and aroma like no other, it’s our sole intention to bring back that ‘wow factor’ when opening a bag of Baitcraft. It’s the same for the fish, I’m sure they get that same feeling when eating this awesome food; carp absolutely love the stuff. It doesn’t stop there; Bank BUG will also be producing matching pop-ups, wafters and glugs (Cow Cola, etc.) to compliment the range to original standards. This is a huge step forward for Bank BUG in the bait market; we intend to bring Baitcraft back with a bang. This will once again, allow anglers to fish with bait they have complete confidence in’.

2017 will see Bank BUG enter phase 4 of development. Bank BUG was launched in March 2013 by founder Christian Cox and has seen a steady growth since the day they started trading. Bank BUG has released many quality products during this time including the one of the fastest selling carp products of 2015/16 - The Rock Steady Back Rest System. With the help from Daniel Winter, the company now has a large following with over 20,000 likes on Facebook. Christian has planned eight phases of development to complete the Bank BUG business plan; this plan runs into 2020. Christian commented “Bank BUG has reached phase 4 quicker than expected and we’re really excited about the future. With so many great companies producing brilliant products, it was hard to find where we could fit into the industry, but Bank BUG has come a long way since our initial launch and with what we have planned in the coming months, our new products will put us firmly on the map. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who’s had the confidence in purchasing products from Bank BUG, without our customers it simply wouldn’t be possible. I would also like to thank our consultants and field testers we’ve attracted to the business, we don’t have many, but that’s the way we like it. They form the very ‘close knit’ Bank BUG family and are one of the most important cogs in our system. With innovative new products on the horizon, we will continue to build the Bank BUG brand.”  2017 looks like being a busy one for Bank BUG. Things to look out for in 2017 include: The Rock Steady Back Rest System V2 - Additions to the Baitcraft bait range - X-PLORER Compact Stove - Clothing, plus much more, watch this space!
