USE HEAVIER FEEDERS
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.
