  • Does anyone colour their pellets?

    Was wondering if any of you colour your pellets?

    I was thinking more along the lines of colouring expanders green when fishing a green pellet only venue ie Makins?

    I would do some expanders anyway but was wondering if anyone had ever pumped or soaked expanders in the green swim stim additive or similar to produce a larger green soft pellet??

    I've coloured pellets before. Green seems to work well in the winter fished with betaine pellets and red is always a good colour too.

      Thanks for that mate, would you use food colouring or do you think i could pump expanders in water thats got the green swim stim liquid additive in?

        i think you would have to use at least 2parts additive to 1 part water to get the desired effect,got to be worth a try though

          Hi Blueser.
          I pump mine with green swim stim most of the time, it just makes them darker.
          I think you would need a light coloured pellet to get any real colour change.
          All the best steve.

            Cheers lads, it would only be for hookers, so i could probably even go 50/50 with the water as i wouldnt want a massive amount.

            Would it still work if i used gelatine? or would that be diluting it too much?

              I used green food colouring mate, but that said, I was using a paler pellet than, say, RS pellets (we had some 'specials' ;-) )
