It’s perhaps a little surprising that it took so long for PVA mesh bagging to make the crossover between specimen and match fishing, because it really is an effective baiting tactic. In fact, it was Guru’s Alex Bones who pioneered the use of PVA in match-fishing circles so, as you’d expect, the Guru Speedmesh system is perfectly tailored to his style of fishing. Nicking a small mesh bag onto the hook before casting allows you to use practically any bait and in much smaller quantities than are possible with the method feeder. Just think, in the very coldest of conditions, you can use bags filled with as little as five pellets and a grain of corn – perfect for winkling out bonus fish.
Due to the nature of the fishing on fish-filled commercials, action can be fast and furious, so Guru Speedmesh needed to melt quicker than anything else out there. To ensure that it delivered its payload effectively in really cold temperatures, Alex tested it in conditions that we’re sure he’d rather have been at home in! As a result, it’s the fastest dissolving PVA mesh on the market, which will ensure that as soon as it hits the deck, you’re fishing effectively over a small pile of bait.
The system is supplied on a tube that has a scoop built into the top for easy bait loading and comes with a plunger to help get the bags super-compact. Remember, the tighter your PVA bags, the quicker and explosively they’ll break down and the quicker you’ll get a bite! The whole system comes in a waterproof, screw-top tube that will keep the PVA in prime condition until you need it next. Guru supply 5m PVA refills, which are supplied on compact spools so that you can keep them in your tackle box until needed.
These 5m refills are supplied on compact spools so that they don’t take up too much room in your tackle box. This means that you can carry a few, ensuring that you don’t run out while on the bank.
