Having completed extensive (and expensive) field testing of our boilies over the past five years, we are now looking to broaden our reach. We need second level field-testers to test new bait and existing products. As long as you go carp angling on a regular basis all year round and are aged 16 or over then you could be just what we’re looking for. Ideally we want to get a good mix of anglers with a range of experience from up and down the country, and we want plenty of feedback from you – it is the feedback that helps us make sure we have the bait right. So we are looking for passion, for dedication, and for enthusiasm. What we’re not looking for is a bunch of anglers who think field-testing is just about getting free bait!
In the flackbait shop we currently have an item for sale, it is called ‘Field Tester Application Pack’ – there are 30 of them for sale. The price of a field tester pack is £29 and for that we will send you 3kg of flackbait boilies plus some pop-ups and other bits. We’ll also send details of how to send us your feedback and catch reports. Once we’ve received all the information and details we’ve requested we will then send you out another 3kg of boilies FREE of charge. In other words, as long as you keep your end of the bargain we’ll have given you over 6kg of top quality boilies, plus popups and other bits, for less than £30!
From these thirty field testers we will then be looking to recruit between three and five permanent field-testers who will then have access to bait at field-tester rates, plus permanent discounts on Nash, Gardner and other ranges of tackle that Flack Tackle provides, all the time they are flackbait field-testers.
A few questions answered about field testing positions at flackbait –
Q. What will it cost me to apply?
A. It will cost £29 to get an application pack, that will include 3kg of boilies, packs of pop-ups and other items, delivered to your door. Plus, if you then fulfil your end of the bargain, you get another 3kg of boilies delivered at no extra charge!
Q. Who can apply?
A. Pretty much anyone. You need to be aged over 16 and live in mainland UK. Purely due to postage costs I’m sorry to say we are not currently looking for anyone who lives in the highlands and islands of Scotland, Northern Ireland, The Channel Islands or The Isle of Mann (If you do live in any of those areas we would still be prepared to consider you if you are happy to pay the difference in postage).
Q. What are my commitments?
A. Well there are no commitments really. If you don’t want to send us your catch report then we will be unable to send your second lot of free boilies out, but if you do want to get those free boilies then you will need to fill in a few details about what you caught, where you caught it and any other useful information about your set-up, plus of course that all important photo, that we can then use for further promotion! Remember that we are looking to take on permanent field-testers, so the more useful and high quality information and feedback you can give us, the better your chances are for getting one of those places and all the benefits that follow from being a field-tester.
Q. What’s in it for me?
A. If you have to ask that question then the chances are you are not the person we’re looking for. But if you love fishing, want to help improve fish diet and welfare, and increase the popularity of the sport that we love, then there will be plenty of benefits for the right person!
