About this product
t is basically a small rubber ball that has a stem attached to it, though which the hook point is passed.
The paste is then moulded around the ball, stem and shank of the hook, leaving the point and part of the bend exposed. The stem can easily be shortened with scisscors to suit various sizes of paste bait.
The Paste-Mate can be positioned at any point on the hook, to suit the anglers requirements eg. with the hook point coming out of the side or top of the ball of paste. It can be easily removed from barbless or semi-barbless hooks, and re-used many times, or simply left on a barbed hook at the end of a session that you intend to use again.
Available in small size to suit hook sizes 12-18 (12 per pack). standard for hook sizes 4-12 (10 per pack).

The Pastemate hair rig version is a quick and simple to use hair rig replacement, that can be easily removed should a change of bait be required. They are attached to the hook via a small length of silicone tube, cut from the length provided. They are suitable for use with all types of paste, and the hair can be lengthened by stretching to suit bait size.
