Angler's Mail tackle editor Richard Howard is the No.1 products inspector, checking out loads of quality kit every week. Here's his lowdown on the Guru Bait Strainers…


DESIGNED for using with Guru Bait Boxes, you simply place one of these strainers in your bait box, fill it with expander pellets, then water.

Once you have left them to soak, remove the strainer, discard the water and leave the strainer to stand for ten minutes to allow the excess water to drain off. Your pellets should now be ready for use.

Nifty raised feet on the bait boxes allow any excess water to drain off over time, so your choice of bait won’t go mushy. You won’t lose bait through the strainer either.

These handy accessories are also ideal for baits like hemp, caster or meat that you may want to keep covered with water during your session, but then strain when you come to pack away.
