The LS Gunki Kiddy Lures 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: a soft lure designed for the finesse end of lure fishing.

Specifications: available in 11 colours, in 5, 7.6 and 10 cm sizes. You get 5-12 in a pack, depending on the size of lure. They all feature a big eye and a split tail, along with a large head, for easy hooking, and are flavoured with shellfish attractant.

My verdict: looking like the real deal (a prey fish), these lures are a great option for perch and zander.

I like the big eye and the realistic ‘shimmer’ on the body.

I bet their long, split tails flick and wiggle when you drop shot or jig them.

A slit in the back of the body allows you to fish them with a Texas rig – bonus!

I’m sure the shellfish attractant will help anglers feel more confident that they’ll attract fish.

The variety will allow you to ‘match the hatch’ on venues where predators are accustomed to eating certain species.

Price: from £5.49 a pack.
