Matching Corker Pop-ups
Regarded by many as the best pop-ups in the business. Made from exactly the same ingredients used within each individual boilie recipe, but the addition of granulated cork gives them their buoyancy.
One of the advantages of cork dust pop-ups is that you can trim them to any shape with a pair of sharp scissors, which can be brilliant for snowman presentations and also to release flavour levels further still.
For long term buoyancy, they can be drilled out with a 7mm drill bit before inserting some Gardner Tackle Zig Foam. When doing this, they will stay popped up for very long periods, but if customers prefer cork ball pop-ups, please take a look at our Cork Ball Pop-up Packs.
Please Note: White Snail pop-ups are the only ones in this section that do not contain cork dust.
New for 2015 = B5 Salami Pop-ups and Salami Cream Pop-ups
Cork dust pop-ups have a number of advantages over other pop-ups.
1) Made with identical ingredients/attractors to free offerings and send out the same food signals.
2) More durable and less prone to ‘theft’ from nuisance fish, crayfish and birdlife!
3) They can be pierced with a baiting needle without losing buoyancy.
4) Brilliant for ‘snowman’ presentations where you can trim down the corker pop up with scissor blades to achieve the perfect level of buoyancy required.
5) Ease of use.
Top tip for long term buoyancy
When fishing pop-up rigs in deep water for long periods of time or on waters where bird life can be a problem, drill out a cavity in the corker pop up with an 8mm drill bit then plug it with Gardner Tackle’s cylindrical high density rig foam (yellow). Then pierce the corker pop up on to your hook/rig, making sure the baiting needle goes up through the yellow foam first, then secure with boilie stop. I guarantee you that you can leave your pop up out there for 3-days if needed with no loss of buoyancy! Further to this, in the unlikely event that a diving coot or tufty unknowingly pinches your pop up, you are still fishing a nice visual yellow ‘fake’ bait.
