Marc says: I’ve used various Mainline baits for as long as I can remember and, as good as the flavours have always been, I always used to complain that the pop-ups weren’t buoyant enough.

When I discovered that Mainline had improved upon this I made a point of getting hold of some of the newer versions to test. That was over a year ago and they now remain a stock item in my bait bucket!

Everyone knows of the pineapple version and how effective it is, but Fruit Tella, Tutti, Indian Spice and Plum are also well worth a try. My favourite is the white Milky Toffee, which I simply never go fishing without. I love the colour and the carp seem to love the flavour. ’Nuff said!
