Dynamite Big Fish River 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: hookable 12 mm pellets formulated for big river fish.

Ingredients: Shrimp & Krill, Cheese & Garlic and Meat-Furter high-leakage hook pellets containing water-soluble fishmeals and other attractors.

My verdict: last week, on the eve of the river season, I wrote about Dynamite’s exciting new Meat-Furter flavour range, which consists of groundbait, pellets, paste, hook baits and a bait soak.

This week I thought it would be good to mention their new 12 mm Durable Hookers, which come in Shrimp & Krill, Cheese & Garlic and Meat-Furter flavours.

The pellets, are aimed at river species such as barbel, chub and carp, including ‘carbelling’ (barbel fishing with carp gear).

With a one-hour breakdown time, the Durable Hookers leak a lot of flavour, helping you to attract fish quickly.

They’re easy to hair-rig or spike, but you can also put them directly on a hook.

For maximum appeal, try fishing one in a flavour trail created by a PVA bag or feeder of matching groundbait or feed pellets.

Just remember, these baits aren’t designed to be left out in the water for several hours, so it’s best to change your hook bait quite regularly.

Price: £3.99.
