The Dynamite 8 mm Swim Stim Durable Hookers come under the beady eye of Angler's Mail tackle editor Richard Howard. He's the No.1 products inspector, checking out loads of quality kit every week.  

Description: 8 mm hooker pellets to accompany the existing 4 and 6 mm sizes in the extensive Swim Stim groundbait, pellet, expander pellet, paste and pellet soak range.

Ingredients: high-leakage premium fishmeal. Available in Amino Original, Betaine Green, F1 Sweet, White Amino, Red Krill and Marine Halibut flavours.

My verdict: these hooker pellets have a soft, hookable texture, but are firm enough to stay on the hook during a cast.

Easily hair-rigged, there’s a good range of flavours and colours to choose from, and you can even match them with the same flavours from the Swim Stim groundbait range.

These pellets can be fished with a feeder, waggler or pole, and the 8 mm size should appeal to specialist anglers, too.

I would happily use a few of them for a hook bait, hoping for a quick bite before they softened.

They’ll attract commercial fishery carp, bream, tench and roach, as well as river species such as chub and barbel.

Price: £3.25 per pot.
