For years anglers have been
adding pieces of shrink tubing and the like to their hooks to help improve rig
mechanics and make the hook turn more aggressively in the mouth of a carp and
improve the chances of a hookhold.
Years ago this was done by using a bent hook, and although very effective they also caused damage to a fishes mouth, so anglers switched to tubing.
Now these Kickers have taken the hassle out of having to steam and shape shrink tubing to achieve this effect, as they can simply be slipped over the eye of the hook to give the perfect presentation in a matter of seconds.
Some anglers look to try and disguise their hook as much as possible, and they will like the green and brown versions which will blend in with most lake beds.
But on some waters adding a touch of colour to the hook can produce quicker bites, which is why they also come in a choice of vibrant red, yellow, white or pink varieties. These have already proved very successful during testing when used in combinations such as the yellow Kicker with an artificial corn hookbait.
The Kickers are made from a robust rubber which will easily slide over the eye of the hook and hold in place, and when a fish is hooked it straightens but will then return to its original shape afterwards.
The anglers who have had access to these in advance have been coming up with all sorts of other presentations as well as that which they were originally designed for!
There are three sizes available, with small fitting size 10-12 hooks, medium for size 6-8, and large for size 2-4.
A pack of ten costs £3.99.
