Cork Wafters:

These cork-dust wafters are designed to counterbalance your hook, creating the ultimate balanced alternative hookbait.

They are available in 15mm round and 18mm round, as well as barrel-shaped hookbaits, the latter of which are sold as a mixed pot of small (12mm x 15mm) and large (14mm x 18mm) dumbbells.



Corker Pop-Ups:

We believe our food bait pop-ups are some of the best around. We spent a long time experimenting to create a pop-up that emits the exact same food signals as the free offerings you are using. Utilising cork granules/pop-up mix and a unique powder blend which includes all the goodies from the relevant base mix, we’ve created what we feel are the ultimate food-bait pop-ups. Why use a pop-up that is giving off different food signals to the bait you are using? Being a slightly more washed out colour than the matching bait, they will mimic your freebies perfectly once immersed in water.

They aren’t quite as buoyant as a true air ball pop-up due to the amount of soluble goodies we’ve crammed in, but you should expect a 15mm bait to stay up all night on a standard rig. If you require a longer time than this, we would suggest either corking them out or alternatively using the 18mm versions, which will stay buoyant for days.

Approx. 100gms per pot.



Halftone Wafters:

Through much trial and tribulation, we have managed to incorporate the optimum levels of liquid food used in our freezer baits and combine it with our wafter mix! All this together with slightly elevated flavour levels make the Half Tones a fantastic target hook bait, either fished over matching freebies or on their own. They come in a 10mm x 15mm dumbell shape and each tub contains a mixture of fluoro white and half toned pink hookbaits. As with the other fluoro dumbells in our range they are a firm but spongy structure. These wafters can easily be mounted by piercing or tying onto a hair and can be easily trimmed to suit your flavoured pattern/size of hook. As they come they balance a medium gauge size 8 pattern perfectly.

The Switch Half Tones contain- Yeast Extracts and Betaine along with other elements combined with a meaty flavouring.

Available in two dumbbell sizes: Small (10mm x 15mm) and Large (14mm x 18mm)



Hydro Spod Syrup:

These amazing liquids were a real winner during testing and now form a key part of most DNA customers’ armouries. Based on our incredible Hydro Wheat liquid, but with the addition of the Switch Liquid Food, along with an organic feed stimulant, these very special liquids are a massive edge for a variety of baiting methods. Full of complex soluble sugars and natural enzymes. Along with containing all nine essential amino acids, this viscous liquid is particularly high in both Lysine and Glutamic Acid. They can be used over boilies, particles and pellets or even to ensure your maggots get to the bottom quicker. These syrups are not quite as active as pure Hydro Wheat, but please remember they are still classed as ‘active’ and so should be monitored regularly during warm conditions to ensure there is no messy mishaps. If you see the bottle expanding slightly just crack the lid gently and release some gas. It will settle down over time.



Liquid Food:

The same amino-liquid-based combinations used in the production of our freezer baits. Based around marine-extract proteins, liquid-meat extracts, vegetable extracts, spices and, where applicable, the same subtle flavours used in the relevant baits. Superb as bait soaks or additions to stick mixes and groundbaits. A useful tip is to cover some mid-protein carp pellets in this liquid and leave overnight to soak, giving you a perfectly matched pellet to your chosen freezer bait.

The Switch Liquid Food – To complement the complex base mix, the Switch Liquid is a complete FOOD source with a serious twist. There are no fewer than nine different liquids and ingredients used in the make-up of this very special liquid, each one with its own function. This liquid has got the lot in terms of attraction, nutrition and taste. Not only that, we have added a special Immunostimulant (100% natural; fishery owners, take note) that aids beneficial bacteria to fish’s gut/intestinal flora, helping fish to utilise feed more efficiently, increase their weight, improve their feed-conversion ratio (FCR), boost their immunity against pathogens and increase their survival rate. An effective way of trying to combat Spring Mortality Syndrome (SMS) when carp’s immune system is at its lowest. The attraction side comes from the soluble, free-form amino acids within the liquid, which are powerful feeding triggers. Combining this with a subtle energy kick in the form of Capsaicin and ‘Active’ Peptides, the active proteins used in the liquid are totally exclusive to DNA and you will not find these elsewhere. Gustatory response (taste) comes from the proprietary blend of in-house sweeteners and salts. The meaty/yeasty aroma comes from a specially designed and, again, exclusive-to-us flavour compound.



Bait Soak:

The matching bait soak for our boilie range. Perfect for glugging hookbaits, mixing in with your preferred choice of pellets or groundbaits, adding to particles, or flavouring corn or maggots. It can even be used to harden your hookbaits if you have problems with crayfish or other nuisance species. Another bonus is that it is PVA-friendly, so use it in your stick mixes or even straight into a solid PVA bag. Its list of uses is only limited by your imagination!

Sold in a handy 250ml squeezy-top bottle.



Pellets 1kg:

Based on a high-quality, low-oil 38% protein pellet, with the matching Liquid Food liberally applied to them during their manufacture. We wanted to make sure that they spelt ‘food’ to carp in the same way our freezer baits do by emitting a varied release of attractive amino acids during their breakdown. This comes from not just the Liquid Food, but also the soluble, powdered attractors used in the coating process. In testing these pellets evoked instant responses from carp (and also most coarse fish!) even in the Arctic conditions. If you are using the DNA range of freezer baits this season, you NEED to get on these. If you are not using our baits get on them anyway, as they will improve your catch rate alongside any boilie... guaranteed!



Hard Hookbaits:

These specially toughened hookbaits have been developed for use when encountering problems with both nuisance species, or when wishing to leave your rigs in place for extended periods of time. Based around the matching boilie flavour, they include a blend of hardening agents to ensure both the outer skin and core of the bait are toughened sufficiently to withstand unwanted attention over a long time frame.

During testing these baits were still catching fish days after being introduced to the water, even during high summer water temperatures. As a ‘match the hatch’ hookbait goes, these are top of the tree!



Halftone Popups:

You asked for it, we delivered! Through much trial and tribulation, we have managed to incorporate the optimum levels of liquid food used in our freezer baits and combine it with our super-buoyant air ball pop-up mix! Slightly elevated flavour levels make the Half Tones a fantastic target hook bait. Either fished over matching freebies or on their own. They come in two sizes, 12mm and 15mm. The 12mm version being suited to low-lying pop-up rigs such as the Ronnie rig or as toppers for your snowman rigs. The 15mm version being perfect for chod rigs or hinged rigs when you want to use a larger hook. Each tub comes with a mixture of fluoro white and half-toned pink hook baits, which have the perfect texture to be either tied or threaded on to your rig.

The Switch Half Tones contain Yeast Extracts and Betaine, along with other elements combined with a meaty flavouring.

Mixed tubs of half-tone pink and white baits are available in either 12mm or 15mm sizes.

Approx. 50 x 15mm baits per pot.



Intense Booster:

A small bottle that packs a mighty punch! The Intense Boosters really do live up to their name and allow your fluoro hookbaits to reach new levels of attraction. They come in 15ml dropper-style bottles, as just half a dozen drops at a time is enough to keep your hookbaits smelling divine! Just add, leave to dry add again and repeat as many times as required to make sure the guy in the next swim is left wondering what that incredible smell is.



Shelf Life Boilies:

This particular bait or, more so, the concept, is something we worked on for 4 or 5 years. Unfortunately, the lack of viable ingredients hampered progress until the summer of 2013, when we eventually started to piece parts of the puzzle together.

What we were looking for when we set about creating this bait was something that would compete nutritionally with the best fishmeals on the market, so no ‘that will do’ attitude was acceptable. The first problem we came up with was we were doing it without using fishmeals! You don’t have to look far nowadays to see a campaign based around protecting our marine fish stocks and making sure food ingredients are sustainable, and this is something that has been at the forefront of our minds for quite some time now.

What we came up with was a totally sustainable blend of high-quality and readily available (although costly) food-grade protein sources. With ingredients like Pea Protein Isolate, Rennet Casein, Calcium Casienate, Whey Protein and Beef Protein Isolate all above 80% protein mark, it’s already easy to see where the high spec of this bait comes from. This is before we come to the top-drawer Hydrolysed Yeast and liver powders used to enhance the gustatory and olfactory (taste and smell) attraction of the bait. The inclusion of these high-end ingredients enables us to also keep the boiling of the bait incredibly low. The baits are actually boiled for over a minute less than the rest of our range, preserving more of the baits’ essential amino acids and, in turn, vastly improving the finished baits’ profile. This still leaves you with a firm enough bait to stick out, yet once in the water the bait’s solubility is second to none. Stick one in a glass of water overnight and you will see for yourself.

To complement the complex base mix, the Switch Liquid is a complete FOOD source with a serious twist. There are no fewer than nine different liquids and ingredients used in the make-up of this very special liquid, each one with its own function. This liquid has got the lot in terms of attraction, nutrition and taste. Not only that, we have added a special Immunostimulant (100% natural; fishery owners, take note) that aids beneficial bacteria to fish’s gut/intestinal flora, helping fish to utilise feed more efficiently, increase their weight, improve their feed-conversion ratio (FCR), boost their immunity against pathogens and increase their survival rate. An effective way of trying to combat Spring Mortality Syndrome (SMS) when carp’s immune system is at its lowest.

The attraction side comes from the soluble, free-form amino acids within the liquid, which are powerful feeding triggers. Combining this with a subtle energy kick in the form of Capsaicin and ‘Active’ Peptides, the active proteins used in the liquid are totally exclusive to DNA and you will not find these elsewhere. Gustatory response (taste) comes from the proprietary blend of in-house sweeteners and salts. The meaty/yeasty aroma comes from a specially designed and, again, exclusive-to-us flavour compound. This liquid will complement any boilie/pellet/particle/groundbait, but by combining this liquid with the powders used in the Switch base mix, synergistically we have very cleverly created an active bait that carp find irresistible.

NB. We recommend that in use, the Switch IS NOT air-dried, especially whilst fishing. Due to some of the fine grade of some ingredients within the mix, air-drying can cause splitting and cracking of the baits. In our opinion, this bait is at its best used fresh. If you want to keep the bait for longer sessions, we would recommend using the stabilised shelf-life version.
