The Enterprise Tackle Caster Bait Bands 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: bait bands for casters.

Specifications: made from biodegradable plastic; non-toxic; 20 single caster or 16 double caster bands in a packet.

My verdict: this is another new product from Enterprise Tackle that’s made from soft, biodegradable plastic.

These bands are tapered, the idea being that you push a caster gently through the wider side, doing away with the need for pellet pliers.

The single and double caster bands come with a tab to secure them onto a hook.

Alternatively, you can use a baiting needle to pull a hair through the band before tying it on.

As well as casters, these bands will also take a 4 mm pellet, confirm Enterprise.

The beauty of banding casters, rather than hooking them, is that you can catch more than one fish on one hook bait, because they won’t get crushed or shelled by the point of the hook, something that will benefit match anglers fishing against the clock.

Last month I featured the exciting biodegradable Enterprise Tackle Zig Stix. I’d just like to point out that while the Niteglow designs are £2.99 a pack, the Standard and Fluoro versions are just £2.50.

I’d like to see other tackle manufacturers reduce their use of plastic. If you are a tackle company and beginning to do this, please contact me with the details.

Price: £2.50 a pack.
