14 items of tackle you should buy this August
Here’s the new items which may be showing up on your bank statement this month…

1. Kodex Zig & Floater Hooklink

A monofilament line with fluorocrystal properties that make it practically invisible underwater. Somehow, Kodex have managed to make it super thin (0.25mm), yet strong too (it breaks at 12.9lb). What’s more, it’s available on a 100m spool, which makes it great value.
“GIMME”: £5.49; kodextackle.com

2. Mainline Baits Souper Zig Mix

A groundbait mix designed to leave an attractive cloud of particles suspended in the water column around your Zig hookbaits. It’s packed with active enhancers, stimulants and ‘slow sinking’ crushed particles to get those cruisers interested.

Once upon a time, in a carp scene not so far away from this one, if you were using a coated braid, the chances were that it’d be a Sufix one. Well, newsflash, they’re back!
