I came up with the concept of steaming back in 2005 and I had already made some successful mixes which I had been using in my fishing for over a decade prior to the idea to steam my baits, and from there it’s grown from a few extra bites into a full time job making and supplying the highest quality bait direct to the public.
Since using Steamies I’ve had so much success, a few memorable captures spring to mind like when I had a brace of Uk 30lb commons side by side in the net together from Frimley pit three, I’ve had a big brace from Abbey Lakes containing both a common and mirror to 42lbs, along with a nice brace of 30+ mirrors from Gran Canaria too. Most recently I had B’s fish from Sky Lake @60.08 and then bagged an unknown mirror of 55lbs less than 5 hours later.
With the massive range of totally unique products, all of which have been put together by the Team, makes it easier to stay on top of my game and keep stacking up the kippers in my photo album.
Best of all myself and the team are on hand every day to share our edges, baits & tactics to guarantee you catch more fish.

Five years ago a chance meeting with Kristian and a chat convinced me to try his baits, using a variety of Steamed baits and other products from the Steamies vast range I’ve been consistently catching fish since.
Kristian’s knowledge of baits is extensive and he is always coming up with new ideas and innovations.

I have fished since I was 5years old, I only got into carp fishing about 10 years ago.
How often do you go fishing? Having a young family and a job means fishing time is seriously restricted! I tend to fish quick overnighters arriving just before dark and leaving early morning, I try and get out on the bank at what I feel are the best times, generally spring and autumn and will fish 2-3 nights a month. During winter I tend to try and earn brownie points by doing short day sessions rather than nights.
Although at times I look at other anglers with a lot more time at their disposal and can’t help but feel at a disadvantage, I think that having very little time can make you more focused and determined to make the most of every opportunity. I always travel very light taking minimal kit and will think nothing of moving three or four times during an overnighter.
Why Steamies? About four years ago I started fishing a southern club lake, initially just doing days. It wasn’t the easiest of waters and I knew I would have to work hard to get results. Being mobile and getting on the fish as often as possible meant I soon started to get among the residents.
I was catching most of my fish on adjustable zigs with fish up to mid-thirties and although a few fish came off the bottom I always felt that I should have been getting more action. It was at this point I started to think about bait as I knew my rigs worked and I was on fish, bait was the only possible weakness. It was at this point I started to look at Individual baits.

I’ve been Carp Fishing since I was a teenager
I spoke to a friend who recommended Steamies so I decided to do a little research. Because these are steamed and not boiled they react in a different way in the water, which makes them look up to 12 hours old within thirty minutes. It’s a great edge to have. When you move on to harder lakes going for older, bigger fish it’s vital that you find a bait they’re all fools for. My fishing has definitely improved since I started using the bait and I’ve caught some lovely looking fish with my biggest so far being a 36lb mirror and a 45lb common.
I’ve been using Steamies for almost two years now. Since switching I have beat my PB three times and caught fish that are over sixty five years old. For the last two years I’ve been drifting on and off of four different waters in my club, fishing them at different times as they all fish differently throughout the year.

I have been fishing since the age of 6 but the carp bug really took hold 7yrs ago. I manage to fish most weeks on a friday night. I have a wife and 3 kids so I don’t get out as much as I’d like.
Why Steamies: I chose Steamies because steamed baits have an edge, drop a few in water and you’ll soon see for yourself, boiled baits have had their hay day, steamed baits are the way forward. I have been using Steamies for over 2yrs now and will be forever more.
Steamies have turned me from a pellet angler to a Steamed bait angler over night, they’re an edge, get on it! Whatever baiting situation you find yourself in Steamies will have it covered, and if its not on the shelf they’ll make it up for you in no time. Take a look at their oil range, its second to none.

How often do you go fishing? Due to work Commitments I usually on have two nights per week to go fishing and if work permitting weekends. During the week it means setting up under the cover of darkness and leaving under the cover of darkness which means I have limited time and so makes me work harder.
For instance my current UK pb was caught from Alders Lake in Kent, I turned up and found a sneaky area with my marker and spodded over it and within an hour my rod teared off and I landed my PB 36.15 pictured above.
Why Steamies? I was recommended to steamies by a friend, so i went along to the shop and met Kris, the owner, and was instantly impressed with his enthusiasm and knowledge, its just gone on from there.
Since being on Steamies my catch rate has doubled, there’s a massive range available which all have a proven track record and there’s always something to give you an edge to the guy next to you on the bank.

I first came aware of steamies when out fishing one winter and got to meet one of the team on the bank. We got talking about all thing carp and ended up getting onto the subject of bait . He started telling me about steamies and I decided to give it ago so went up the shop to meet the guys and get some bait and have not looked back since . I am very impressed with the bait and can’t see myself ever changing . It has increased my catch rate so much . The bait seems to get results on every lake from pressured day tickets to syndicates. Steamed baits are the way forward. Much of my fishing is done on quick over nighters or weekends due to busy work life and a young family just shows with the right bait you don’t need to spend every hour on the bank to get results .on a recent day session I managed to have 46 bites in 9 hours landing 42 fish with the smallest fish being 14lb up to mid 20s what goes to show how good the bait is .

UK PB 29.12
I have been fishing for about 5 years now and have to say I am hooked.
Due to work commitments I very rarely get the opportunity to fish long sessions. The majority of my fishing is quick overnighters between work or 24 hour sessions at the weekends.
Why steamies ; After meeting one of the steamies lads at a lake I was fishing at the time. I got talking to him and he recommended that I should give steamies a go . That was almost a year ago now and have not looked back since. In my opinion the diverse product range that Steamies offer is out there with some of the best. My personal favorite being CNO which although being new to the range has smashing up lakes all over the country and Europe.
