The Fjuka Neeonz come under the beady eye of Angler's Mail tackle editor Richard Howard. He's the No.1 product inspector, checking out loads of quality kit every week.

Description: fluorescent hooker pellets.

Specifications: fluorescent; loaded with Sensate Micronized Attractants (eight attractants, stimulants and taste enhancers); supplied in a reusable tube; available in Powerball Pink, Lightning White, Well Hello Yellow and Brilliant Orange.

My verdict: these interesting fluorescent hook baits have been formulated for maximum visual appeal and smell.

They are the brainchild of Dave Preston, the man behind Preston Innovations.

They’re the first hookable fluorescent bait that I’ve come across.

I’ve heard them being described as resembling a boilie paste, as they’re 6-8 mm and mouldable.

You can make them smaller or bigger by pulling some of the pellet off or moulding two pellets together.

You could even combine two flavours or mould some around a completely different hook bait.

You can change their shape, a flatter pellet being ideal if you want it to sink slowly and rest over weed or silt.

Fish can show a preference for a certain bait colour, even in different parts of a swim on the same day.

Where fish have coloured the water from feeding on the bottom, you may want to switch to a different-coloured bait to keep bites coming.

Neeonz are all loaded with a blend of attractors that smell like herbs.

If you’re confident in its flavour, you can get on with finding out which colour the fish want.

Present them at any depth with a float, or on the bottom with a bomb or feeder.

They look really versatile and easy to use, and I reckon that the yellow ones will work where corn is used a lot.

I really fancy the white colour for a bite, and the pink and orange colours look to be useful as change baits.

The baits are micronised (made of reduced-diameter particles), Fjuka reporting that they offer 3,000 times the available flavour and taste of ordinary attractants.

Fjuka also says that they neutralise fish-repellent odours, including sweat, fuel and sunscreen.

They are available from tackle shops, and

Price: £5.99 each.
