11 items you need to buy this June
From strong smelling paste and toughened hookbaits to RidgeMonkey’s new USB-charging head torch - these are the items which will show up on your bank statement this month…

1. Sticky Baits Tuff Ones

Sticky Baits reckon that their boilies are much more effective when they’re softer, so they’ve brought out toughened hookbaits for those anglers who have problems with nuisance fish or bird pick-ups. You can get them in either Krill, or the new Manilla bait in 16mm. “GIMME”: £6.50; stickybaits.com

2. Prologic Spectrum HDC

A super-supple fluorocarbon casts really well. It’s tinted to help it blend with the aquatic environment and sinks like a stone! It’s low-stretch too, which makes for great ‘sensitivity’ when feeling for drops! “GIMME”: £39.99; prologicfishing.com

3. Chub Outkast Topskin

A hybrid between a sleeping bag and a thermal bedchair cover that’s perfect for use on its own in the summer, or as part of a layered system in the very coldest weather! “GIMME”: £59.99; chubfishing.co.uk

4. RidgeMonkey VRH300 USB Rechargeable Headtorch

This new head torch from RidgeMonkey outshines others not just with its power and features, but by the fact it’ll cost you zero to run it. The water-resistant head pumps out twin colour, variable brightness (from 50 to 200 lumens), five beam options to suit all situations: low white/green, medium white/green, high white, and after a 4hr charge it’ll give you upwards of 90hrs use. “GIMME”: £49.99; ridgemonkey.co.uk

5. Gardner Slo-Mo PVA Bags

You NEED these if… (1) If you’re fishing at range and your solid PVA needs to take the extreme forces associated with long-range fishing. (2) If you’re fishing really deep venues. (3) If you’re fishing in very warm water conditions (particularly France). (4) And if you only want to use neutral pH bags (so odourless/tasteless to carp). Available in two sizes, Mini (105 x 60mm) and Standard (130 x 80mm). “GIMME”: £3.99 for 20

6. Kodex Micro-Strip Hooklink

A weedy green, strippable coated braid that can be used for a multitude of presentations. It’s supplied in 15 and 25lb, comes on 20m spools, and has a hard-to-see matt finish which also helps it sink and pin itself to the contours of the lakebed. Double thumbs for this. Kodex, we salute you. “GIMME”: £6.99; kodextackle.com

7. Cygnet Minimal Buzzer Bars

All the characteristics (matt black, minimal, lush-looking) of Cygnet’s 20/20 Range but in a slimmer, svelte profile. All solid metal fittings, flawless paintwork and available in a range of sizes in both 2 and 3 Rod formats. “GIMME”: £7.99 and £9.99; cygnettackle.co.uk

8. Urban Baits Tuna & Garlic Paste

Create super-attractive paste-wrapped baits, or roll your own corkballs with this convenient paste pack from Urban. The Tuna & Garlic is a punchy blend of milk proteins, fishmeals and cereals and liquid foods that adds up to one heck of a good big-fish bait. “GIMME”: £4.95; urbanbaits.co.uk

9. Fortis 5 Panel Hat

Beautifully styled five-panel caps, made from lightweight, muted olive material. They’re minimally branded and feature nice little tweaks like the elasticated sunglasses holders that are designed to stop your sunnies going AWOL. One size fits all, thanks to an adjustable strap. “GIMME”: £14.99; fortiseyewear.co.uk

10. Gardner PVA Booms

In years gone by, the only way to really guarantee your hooklink was perfectly pushed out, away from the lead, was to use a 25lb mono boom. Today, thanks to Gardner’s new PVA Booms, you can achieve that ace presentation with any material, from a coated hooklink to a soft braid. The Booms are available in three lengths and they can be trimmed down to match the length of individual rigs perfectly. “GIMME”: £3.50, £4.99 and £7.50; gardnertackle.co.uk

11. Bait-Tech Super Fruit Pop-Ups

Attractor pop-ups with a mouthwatering fruity aroma. They are available in handy pots that contain both mixed-size baits (10-15 and 15-18mm), and mixed colours too! Each pot contains pink, white and yellow baits. “GIMME”: £4.99; bait-tech.com
