Just ordered some of these. Couldn't resist. Just another Barbel hookbait to try alongside my usual. Anyone tried them?

I must say I've not had as much success as I'd like with bloodworm flavoured pellets, as deadly as they sound, I have more success with plain old Coppens Coarse pellets. I should give these a proper try though as I bought some Mainline Dissolvas and still haven't given them a fair run, always going back to Sonubaits Barbel Hookbaits which I know I can catch on.

Bloodworm baits were the new kid on the block in specialist fishing a few years ago.

They have basically sunk without trace. Personally I would look elsewhere and just try the dumbells as a change bait.

If you want to use Sticky baits then the ones with a track record are the Krill and the Manilla. Both are top quality productive baits.

Yeah I think they might catch more anglers than fish, as to me anything bloodworm spells fish, but like I say not as much success on the bloodworm pellets as I'd have liked. Will give them a run as a change bait and see how they do anyway.

I used these years ago on the carp, they never set the world on fire but I caught on them. I don't think I'd rush out and buy another pot to be honest but I'm sure you'll catch on them, good luck.

Glad you at least caught on them! They arrived today and they're quite big for 15mm, at least compared to Sonubaits 15x12mm, they're much longer. They also have a good (strong) smell but Sonubaits are effective and don't smell very much so I don't put much in how they smell. Only way to see is to try them I guess!

Bought a tub of their krill liquid once, tried it a few times, didn't rate it, binned it, it proper stunk as well, horrible stuff.

As per @squimp

I can vouch for Sticky baits The Krill boilies, that small barbel at Hampton loade took one, and my dads decent barbel last Saturday took one. 16mm ?
