PEL­LET or Method feeder – which is bet­ter for fish­ing up to an is­land?

Paul Fro­bisher, Gol­borne

EI­THER, to be hon­est! A Method feeder does al­low the fish to ap­proach the bait and find it from any an­gle, while a pel­let feeder (be­low) will let carp get at the bait only from the open end. How­ever, if you are fish­ing up to an is­land, it is highly un­likely that a fish will swim from be­hind the feeder any­way.

With a Method feeder you can add ground­bait to the mi­cro pel­lets or leav­ing the hook­bait show­ing on top of the ball of feed. A pel­let feeder works when bites are scarce and you want to leave the feeder out for up to five min­utes. Be­gin on the Method but if things are slow, switch to a pel­let feeder.
