Bait elastic

by David Proudfoot

Bait elastic – An elasticated thread used to secure soft baits such as mussels or crab to the hook by whipping. It does not need to be tied as it grips when stretched. Used to be only available from haberdashery shops in the form of knit-in or shirring elastic but now branded for angling and available from tackle shops.
