I was told that pots of hookers, popups etc are to classified as lures rather as a animal food item such as bags of boilies.

That's fine, but try explaining that to a French customs border guard who doen't speak or understand English. I can speak a bit of French but I very much doubt it is up to that sort of challenge!

I can imagine some people now buying 100ís of clear pots to put their boilies in and passing them off for pop ups

I expect that prepared particle will be in the same category as boilies as they can be classified as animal feed items.

You won't get penalised for 3 or 4 pots of wafteters or hard hookers. Stick em in your tackle bag and forget about them. Douanes will be looking for freezer boxes full of bait, bacon, sausages etc. Put yourself in their shoes. You stop a van, pop the back and side doors open and you would soon work out if it's possibly carrying bags of bait. You're not going to spend hours rummaging through every little bag, holdall or tackle box

Exactly what I was told ..hookbaits are ok ...not to happy with the prospect of not being allowed to use my own boilies.......or even worse to be stopped and then having your passport stamped as 'smuggler '
Only they leave the part out of 'boilie smuggler '...

I thought you could take hookbaits anyhow as theyre not deigned to be eaten and classed as lures, probably wrong though
