Not all of them are though. The ones in your link would be massive on a hook

I'm sure years ago for some strange reason I put a blob of araldite on me hook, god knows why but its a thought

hook beads?

You do know hook beads are repurposed and recoloured ear ring backs don't you?

Something else I twigged with no carp tax.
My other alternative is 2 layers of small shrink tube.
With the beads I used to use a dab of clear nail varnish to stop it moving, or shrink tube, which defeated the object of a bead anyway.

The ESP ones do seem the best but still have to double them up to stop them slipping on a size 4 Mugga when fishing over 60 yards.

use the esp ones, although not really beads they dont move much like other beads.


If only someone could come up with a proper distance bead that doesn't move

What happened with Richard Madeley? did your letter to GMTV get ignored? sorry just joking.

Ive used a variety of hook beads and for those that are slipping just use a larger hook size, or use the esp ones, although not really beads they dont move much like other beads.

Look forward to seeing the OMC beads

Agree with that Belch 100%.

I'm not a "hater" I don't hate anyone, it's not healthy!

I don't like Hamidi as a person for reasons already mentioned. I don't like him as a presenter on TV just as I don't like Richard Madeley on GMTV, I think they are both incredibly annoying and crap.

With regards to his company @doing_a_brew of course I am going to be interested in the products he is producing, they are aimed at the Carp fishing hobby I love, if he did bring out something new and innovative I would definitely consider purchasing an OMC product but at the moment there is nothing that remotely interests me from his very small range of re-hashed stuff!

Agree with the sentiment of this but I think even the die hard AH 'haters' were secretly hoping for the second coming in terms of innovation from someone who's quite clearly one of carp fishing's few actual winners . . .

Easiest way is to paddle out in the dead of night on your inflateble Linda lovelace and place the rigs bang on the spot.

Exactly. I just donít get the emotional responses and hatred towards AH on here, itís sad to the point of hilarity that so many people are triggered by it.

Who cares if someone starts a company selling items youíre not interested in? Wouldnít the sensible thing just be to not waste your energy worrying about it and not even give it a second thought? I canít think of a single reason why youíd be bothered other than jealousy.
