1 )  PVC tube

Our PVC tube has been developed and manufactured specially for us.
It has a thick wall and extra glossy finish      It is available in 3.2 mm and 4.2 mm diameters.
It's great for dressing Mackerel hooks, as it is brightly coloured, hard wearing and very cost effective.
Coloured PVC tube can be used alone, or in conjunction with other materials.

As a rough guide -

The 3.2mm PVC tube is best used with 9754 (ringed/eyed hooks) sizes 10 and 12, and also 9746 (spade end hooks) sizes 9 and 10.
The 4.2mm tube is best used with 9754 (ringed/eyed hooks) sizes 8 and 9, and also 9746
(spade end hooks) sizes 8 and 9 when whipped with heavy monofilament

Available in 10m or 100m hanks, in colours RED ( R ), WHITE ( W ) or YELLOW ( Y ).

3) Ribbon
This is a cheap an effective material for making Mackerel Hooks, giving colour and movement that improves catches compared to the traditional way of using PVC alone.

We offer a choice of :-
Bright Super Red (R) in 500 m lengths (shown opposite),
or Pearlescent White (W) in 250 m lengths.
Both are 4 mm wide


4 ) Mylar Tube

Commonly known as ‘Silver Shrimp’.
Mylar tube is a convenient and effective material for making Mackerel Sets.

Especially good during the summer months or times when fish can be
shy, thin on the ground, or when larger fish are targeted.

Supplied in 10m lengths in SILVER , GOLD and PEARLESCENT

5 ) Flat Metallic Silver / Gold  Braid

This has quite a loose weave and so when tied to the hook at one end, a short cut piece (4-5cm) will soon fray out into multiple single silver strands.

It is a very effective synthetic material for tying small fry or lure imitations

Ideal for making Mackerel traces with light line summer fishing.

Now available in GOLD and SILVER   Width 7mm

Supplied on 25m cards.
