JELLY pel­lets are a sta­ple of my pel­let fish­ing, be­ing much more ro­bust than nor­mal ex­panders, yet with a soft tex­ture that makes them ir­re­sistible! They are easy to make, too – just fol­low these steps to pro­duce your own per­fect ex­panders.

Add half-a-tea­spoon­ful of pow­dered dye to the hot wa­ter to colour the bait. 2

Pour the wa­ter mix into your pel­let pump, then add about half the vol­ume of pel­lets to wa­ter. 4

Add a sa­chet of gela­tine pow­der to a pint of hot wa­ter, and stir well un­til the gela­tine has dis­solved. 1

If you want to flavour your pel­lets, add a tea­spoon­ful of liq­uid ad­di­tive to the wa­ter and stir well. 3

Sieve the pel­lets to re­move ex­cess wa­ter and stop them be­com­ing too soft. Leave for 30 min­utes. 6

Pump the pel­lets and al­low them to stand for about 3-5 min­utes, depend­ing upon their size. 5
