USE HEAV­IER FEED­ERS

Angling Times (UK) - - STEVE RINGER: STILLWATER SECRETS -

THE whole point of us­ing a Method feeder is that the hookbait is among the loose of­fer­ings where it gets sucked up by a feed­ing carp.

If the feeder moves, the hookbait is pulled away from the feed and is likely to be ig­nored. So I have never un­der­stood why some an­glers like to use light, 15g feed­ers, which are very likely to move.

For this rea­son I have al­ways been a fan of heav­ier Method feed­ers – I never fish lighter than 24g, and nor­mally a 36g feeder is my start­ing point.

With a heav­ier feeder I know that once it hits the bot­tom, all I have to worry about is wait­ing for a carp to find it!

I’m also a fan of fish­ing a slack line on the Method. This re­duces the like­li­hood of the feeder be­ing moved by line bites or fish in the vicin­ity of the bait.
