The Kodex Red Wrigglers 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.

OVER the coming months, as some carpers turn to maggots for extra takes, you may find these Kodex Red Wrigglers a useful option.

These bright red imitation maggots certainly look like the real deal, and they sink, like the real thing. Whether you’re fishing them on a maggot clip, or threading them on a hook, line or braid, they’re soft and pliable. You can use them in combination with real maggots, for any species that have a soft spot for ‘reds’.

Price: £1.99 for 20.
