Top Tip: Try putting a drop of aniseed essential oil on fishing bait. The licorice aroma of aniseed attracts fish. In fact, many artificial baits already have a small amount of anise in them. Using a drop or two of pure Aniseeed essential oil applied directly to a lure is said to be help attract fish. It is believed fish can detect human scent on an artificial lure. Fishermen take note, keep a 2% dilution of aniseed essential oil handy to use on hands before handling lures!
