Here’s how I set up for feeder fishing
FEEDER fishing is a very productive method of catching fish! Over the years, rods have got thinner and the tackle used has become more refined, and it is not now a ‘chuck it and chance it’ method as it once was.
A day’s feeder fishing should be a busy day, because if it is not ‘happening’, you should be casting more frequently, altering your hook lengths, changing hook size, varying baits, and even changing the size of your feeder, until finally you get a response from the fish.
You should always work harder on tough days, but when you are ‘bagging’, it just looks after itself! One of the most important parts of feeder fishing starts with a sturdy platform to fish from. When you set up your box, the rear legs should be slightly higher, so that your feet are flat on the footplate, to prevent getting backache.
