The technology of their preparation is universal and consists of the following actions:
Firstly, all dry components are combined, then all liquids.
Mix the dough, adding to the dry mixture some liquid, the money should not gradually become sticky and should reach a dense consistency.
Put the dough in a polyethene bag, after half an hour it will become ductile.
Divide the dough into small pieces. We make sausage from each part. The diameter is about 1 cm.
Cut the sausages so that the cubes are made. If there is a particular table for the formation of boilies, layout sausages on it and make balls out of them. If not, we form the boilies manually.
We roll a ball out of each cube.
Then we boil them for 2 minutes in boiling water (you can put
them in a colander and drop it into boiling water in a pan until the balls rise to the surface) or put them in the microwave.
We put the balls on a flat surface so that they do not touch each other; this is important after cooking and dry them for a day.
Keep boilies in the refrigerator in a sealed bag.

Fishers have different opinions on this question. Someone claims that carp goes exclusively to yellow boilies, others say that the colour of the bait should be natural, and those who like night fishing are advised to use boilies with fluorescent colourants. The choice of dye depends on the characteristics of the reservoir and the preferences of fish that live there.
