14 items of tackle you should buy this month
The shiny and beautiful things after your cash (thank goodness for MasterCard, eh?!)

1. Vass Rigger Boot

This new set of boots from the country’s most popular wader brand doesn’t stop at just keeping your feet dry. The fixed fur warm liner adds a whole new meaning to cosy, warm feet. The three-quarter length height offers great comfort whilst the deep heel kick assists with ease of removal and the ultra-chunky sole will ensure you don’t go arse-over-tit. “GIMME”: £39.95; vass-shoes.com

2. Berkley CB2000

Whether you’re spodding out, feeling for that teeny strip of clean gravel or wanting the ultimate in bite indication, a braided main line makes a Terry Hearn equivalent’s worth of difference. Berkley’s new CB2000 is uber thin, super strong and very well priced at £89.99 for a 900m. berkley-fishing.co.uk

3. Taska All Season Putty

Tungsten putty for all occasions. Thanks to its easy-to-mould make-up (just warm between your fingers or place on the kettle while you brew up), it’ll grip to your coated hooklink whether it’s 30ºC or -5ºC out there. “GIMME”: £6.79; taskacarp.com

4. Cygnet Wideframe Catapult

A strong yet lightweight frame? Check. A tangle-free design for more effortless, accurate baiting? Yep. Add in a pouch which will fire out both boilies and particle baits and the option to purchase spare pouches and elastics, and you’ve got the most perfect all-round pult which will last a lifetime. “GIMME”: £9.99; cygnettackle.co.uk

5. Gardner Mark-It

Whether you’re fishing in a silty gully at 96.3yds or trying not to put one up the tree on ‘Bird Island’ at 56.1yds, ensure you can do it seamlessly every time with Gardner’s super soft 0.8mm latex rubber marker elastic. It doesn’t move on the cast/take, but give it a good tug and it’ll pull free causing zero line damage. “GIMME”: £2.99; gardnertackle.com

6. Wychwood Puffer Jacket

Staying warm is the secret to your success when it comes to winter angling. The Down filler in this puffer isn’t just warm, it’s compressible too, meaning it’ll fit into a fag packet (obvs slight exaggeration) when not in use. There are three zipped pockets, two on the outer and one security on the inside. And of course you’ll look a million dollars too thanks to the amazing camo outer. “GIMME”: £89.99; wychwoodcarp.co.uk

7. CC Moore Elite Acid Pear Pop-Ups

After one sniff of this amazing pear blend, you’ll develop as deep a love for these ‘+’ version pop-ups as the carp have. Its closely guarded formulation creates a distinctive smell, and when combined with the striking hi-viz orange and extra buoyant and super tough texture, you have the mother of all pops. “GIMME”: £6.49; ccmoore.com

8. Nutrabaits Cream Cajouser

Successful flavours for serious winter warrior weather are hard to come by, but Nutrabaits’ Cream Cajouser fits the bill. It’s one of the nicest, smoothest smelling products in the Nutrabaits line-up and has been selling by the litre-load for decades. Why? Because it just catches from everywhere, in every weather condition. “GIMME”: £4.99 for 50ml; nutrabaits.net

9. Urban Baits 2mm Nutcracker Pellets

Cocky enough to think you can imitate Urban’s latest signing, Nigel Sharp? The chances are you can’t, but better your odds with these now Nigel Sharp-approved pellets from the British bait house. Produced using the same proven ingredients as one of the most successful baits of 2016, Nutcracker, they come in two sizes: 2 and 6mm. “GIMME”: £5.95; urbanbaits.co.uk

10. TF Gear DL Black Edition Spod Reel

So you’ve got the matt black DL carp rods. Now complete your look as the cultist angler on the bank with this super powerful spod reel, which not only comes with £60 off, but also with free braid. “GIMME”: £59.99; totalfishinggear.co.uk

11. Kodex Chod Rigs

Kodex’s ready-tied Chod Rigs are unique, perfectly tied, and won’t turn your wallet inside out. Available in two lengths: Short (one-inch) and Long (two-inch) – with the ‘Short’ version being the shortest ready-to-use Chod Rig commercially available, and come in the following hook size/breaking strain ratios: 7 to 15lb; 5 to 20lb and 3 to 20lb. “GIMME”: £4.50 for a pack of three; kodextackle.com

12. Sticky Baits Cloudy Manilla Liquid

There are winter days when single hookbaits aren’t enough, and for those days you need Sticky’s truly amazing Manilla Liquid. It’s a combination of salts, sugars and highly soluble liquid foods which create a hazy cloud in the water and it can be used with anything, on anything. A word of warning though: you will want to drink it. “GIMME”: £8.99 for 1lt; stickybaits.com

13. SONIK ‘S’ Rod Multi Sleeve

Your rods and reels could use some extra protection when they’re in transit, so pair them with SONIK’s new robust holder. Inside it’ll accommodate three rods complete with big pitters, whilst on the outside you can stash your spod and markers rods, along with a landing net. “GIMME”: £69.99; soniksports.com

14. Mainline Multi-Stim

Mainline know their liquids, so when they tell us this is the most powerful feed triggering agent they do, you know it’s good. Being very water-soluble, it will aid attraction in all temperatures and can be used on its own or mixed with a flavour to create the ultimate soak/dip in the colder months. “GIMME”: £10.25; mainline-baits.com
