The jelly pellets are really good, especially the red ones. Very effective. I haven’t seen them for sale anywhere for at least a year. If you have found some they will be old stock though they keep for a very long time without suffering.

They are quite soft and so not suitable for long chucks as they tend to come off the hook when they splash down. The 8mm ones, which are labelled tough, are better in this respect than the 6 and 8mm.

I can’t comment on the nori (green) ones as I’ve never tried them. It was the ebi (red) ones I used to use.

You could make your own by pumping expanders in a mix of water with those jelly sheets in it and added flavours/colours. Drain, then leave them to stand over night in a plastic bag (food bag) or similar in the fridge.

I just use those sheets of gelatin, adding some colour and flavour when the sheets have melted. Lime and blackcurrant seems to work o.k. on the lakes round here.
