These fantastic little packs are just the job if you are looking to get yourself a few of those little odds and ends that always seem to cost a small fortune in the shops. Also, with the dreaded ‘C’ word now only a matter of weeks away; they would make the ideal gift for that hard to buy for parent or friend • and a very handy one at that!
So, what do they contain? Well, Fladen have aimed each pack at a specific sector of the sport with three to choose from;
Sea Accessory Starter Pack • 7005
Particularly suited to the boat angler who is hoping to catch the odd cod or mackerel. The pack contains a pirk, along with a good selection of snap swivels and traces.
Coast / Inshore Accessory Starter Pack • 7075
This eight compartment pack is ideal for Coast and Estuary angling and includes all sorts of bits and pieces; a selection of single and treble hooks, along with a number of traces, swivels, split rings, and weights.
Pike / Lake Accessory Starter Pack • 7076
Aimed at the predator angler, this eight compartment pack includes all the end tackle you will need, everything from trebles and traces, to snap swivels and split rings.
I have to confess that I’ve not used the contents of any of the packs in anger, however, we’ve taken all the packs apart and had a good tug and pull on various components and all seem to live up the reputation of quality promoted by the Fladen Brand.
What I like about these packs is that they give you everything you need to completely change your approach in a matter of minutes. For example, I’m a carp angler in the main, however, by chucking the little predator pack in with my tackle (which I’ve already done!) I can quickly change my approach to have a go at a few snappers when it’s slow on the carp front.
Available online from Tacklebargains at £4.99 each.
