Good evening all. I started fishing last winter, and so have fished through just one spring/summer season, and I never got round to using pellets. I want to use them this year but don't know a lot about them. When would I use expanders (are these the ones that need 'pumping'?), or hooker pellets, or hard pellets. I did buy some pellets last year with the intention of bait banding them, and they were 'hard', but they just floated. I assume I bought the wrong ones? So what do I use, and when? I know you lot'll point me in the right direction. Cheers.
