Floaters - The Krill

You can now harness the awesome pulling power of The Krill for surface fishing! Using a unique double coating process, these high-protein floating pellets leak out attraction to pull carp into your swim and hold them there.

The first coating breaks down as soon as the pellets hit the water, releasing food signals and carrying potent fragments of bait across the surface. The second coating then starts to pump super-soluble attractors into the water to draw up fish not already on the surface.

The attractive oils locked in during the coating process give off an impressive slick as the coatings break down, which flattens off any ripple and attracts carp without the need to carry extra oil for glugging.

They’re supplied in 3kg bags and available in 3mm, 6mm and 11mm.

Adrenaline Nano Pellet Boost review

Angling Times takes a first look at new kid on the block Adrenaline Baits as unveils its super-potent range of additives.

Adrenaline Baits, which are distributed by the Middy Group, is about to introduce three very distinctive and highly potent bait additives – Plasma, Method Crystals and Nano Pellet Boost. 

These can be used in conjunction with baits including pellets, meat, corn and all popular groundbaits. 

Field trials have found the additives particularly effective when used in conjunction with Method tactics, so they are sure to be sought out by commercial match anglers looking for an edge.

To bank-test these baits I took them all along with me on a recent live tackle test. 

In short, I was hugely impressed by all three products, but especially the four super-potent powdered White Cloud, Green Cloud, Red Cloud and Yellow Cloud Nano Pellet Boosts. 

These are so strong that they can change the colour of standard coarse fish feed pellets and lighter coloured expander hookbaits, providing the angler with a host of pellet alternatives on hard-fished match venues. 

VERDICT

‘Use sparingly’ it says on the packaging and, sure enough, a little goes a long way with all these Adrenaline Baits products. 

Nano Boost pellet powder is unlike anything else on the market, such is its strength and vibrancy of colour.

Method Crystals leak off quickly, and are again extremely potent, so you don’t need loads when loading a Method feeder. 

Finally, the viscous Plasma Liquids include a useful and unique Black Worm colour and flavour, likely to be of interest to anyone using chopped worm as feed or hookbait in clear water. As additives that offer both flavour and colour, they’re impressive!

METHOD CRYSTALS

Add just a few of these crystals into your feeder mould to give off a highly visible fish-attracting coloured fog over the lakebed. Secret trials revealed that Adrenaline Method Crystals will increase fish activity in your swim, giving you that all-important edge. 

Available in Green Fog, Yellow Fog, Black Fog and Red Fog, the crystals can be used in tandem with Adrenaline Plasma for double the attraction.

Price: £3.99

PLASMA

Add Adrenaline Plasma to Method feeder set-ups, or neat to pellets, corn and meat, to create an irresistible trail of smell and colour. It’s thick and super-concentrated, with an incredibly potent aroma. Use it with Adrenaline Method Crystals to create a highly visible coloured fog around your feeder and draw fish to your bait.

Available in five versions – Black Worm, Red Worm, Yellow Corn, Pink Meat and Natural Pellet.

Price: £4.99  

NANO PELLET BOOST 

Add just a tiny pinch of this unique powdered attractant to dampened feeder pellets, meat or corn and the colour will be transformed. A s the bait falls through the water it will now give off an irresistible cloud - It's like having gold dust in a 30ml tub! Available in bright fluorescent Green, Yellow and red plus an outstanding white cloud that's ideal for the use with expander pellet hookbaits.

SonuBaits Ian Russell Pop-Ups

These pop-ups have undergone two years of extensive development to source the best flavours and colours. 

Each pot contains a mix of 15mm and 12mm baits, as well as a bottle of booster liquid that allows you cover all bases.

Many modern rigs incorporate big hooks that suit the 15mm pop-ups. The 12mm baits are ideal for smaller hooks when zig fishing, for example.

The striking two-tone swirly colours are different to most other pop-ups on the market, providing carp with a visual target to home in on, and the potent flavour combinations have a proven track record for catching specimen carp. 

Flavours include Tuna & Sweetcorn, Peach & Black Pepper, Indian Spice, Raspberry Ripple, Pineapple & Cream, Chocolate Orange and Creamy Toffee.

Westin lures

PAY AROUND

£17.70

The hunter becomes the hunted thanks to these wickedly flexible lifelike lures produced by Scandinavian predator specialist Westin.

Percy the Perch, Mike the Pike and Tommy the Trout have a seductive swimming action that attracts big predators from far and wide.

Up close, the fluttering fins are more than instinct can stand, and the predators can’t help but strike!

These may seem alien to the tiny lures used for catching perch on canals, but these lead-free imitations have already been tested in the UK and caught plenty of fish.

Underwater footage of the lures in action can be viewed on YouTube – search for Underwaterireland. They are available from www.pecheur.com
