The best winter baits I've ever used bar none and that includes Richworth frozen tutti's that I took my old winter pb on in a -5c windchill just before a load of snow came down...

Took them to a new water yesterday and caught straight after a recast only an hour or so in to my day whilst setting the reel handle! Spotted the line snaking across the surface as I was sinking it! Two blokes apparently blanked it the day before...

Last winter on another lake the Northern outfished my usual snowman combination too fished side by side. I have the utmost confidence in them..

Just a simple 12mm pop-up fished on a swimmer rig.

You can thank me later!

white ones ? Have had some success on the Thames with the pink ones when there's a tinge of colour.

White and yellow. Tried the red but not done so well. Maybe that's just the water though..

I bet you would have had those fish with any other brand of pop up as long as the colour was the same.

I'm not so sure, they seem a tad special.

They are a great bait and have done me well on a number of waters.

When you dip them in the edge the attraction oozes off them. They taste superb too! They are derived from Hutchy's old Autumn Harvest and Nouvelle Fizz two of the best flavours ever.

It's definitely got something to it. I've used them for a good few winters now over several waters they work for me.
