Hi Redwolf,

I personally have never heard of them, maybe when the lads and lassies arrive home from work this evening you will get some response.

Cheers

Drew

Are these the 'new' fish'n'strips thingies ??? There was an interesting thread on here a while back (I wonder did it survive the 'cull') Have a play about using the search feature on the forum.

If they are what I think they are, then they are synthetic baits, so it's as simple as putting a section on the hook (probaly only an inch or so long) instead of 'normal' bait. You could also use smaller pieces to tip off conventional baits - I suspect they would be good for keeping soft baits from obscuring the hook point. Whenever this topic arrises there is some debate as to how effective they are.

They're meant to attract fish by scent underwater in poor visibility, so make sure you put them on the hook! They will last quite a while in cold water and crabs don't wreck them as fast as 'real' bait. Experiment and put them on one hook with 'real' stuff on the other(s) I use Fish'n' strips and they work! Go for it and let us know the results.
