The Dynamite Big Fish Floating Pellets 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: floating pellets for big carp.

Ingredients: Sweet Tiger, Krill and Fishmeal pellets containing fishmeal, fish oil, fish protein, maize gluten, soya, sunflower meal, wheat and yeast.

My verdict: it’s that time of year when carp can be caught from the surface. These 11 mm floating expander pellets are highly flavoured and coloured, which is something a little bit different from the norm.

They can be catapulted or Spombed a decent distance, and you can glue or hair-rig them on the hook, though Dynamite have also launched some Floating Durable hook pellets, in matching flavours.

Although these are ready to use, Dynamite do offer a number of liquid attractors, too, including Evolution Oils, which I like to add to my floating pellets. Give ’em a go!

Price: £5.99 for 1.2 kg.
