Achiev­ing a bolt ef­fect

The feeder is at­tached to a link swivel run­ning on the main­line but stopped by beads, al­low­ing only a lit­tle play. Fish will now hook them­selves against the weight of the feeder.

Quick-change buf­fer bead

This de­vice al­lows you to switch be­tween hook sizes and hooklengths in sec­onds, and the rub­ber bead that slides down over the swivel also cush­ions the feeder, avoid­ing crack-offs.

Hemp and caster

Pel­lets are very much in vogue for feeder fish­ing, but when the rivers are low and clear many an­glers think scal­ing down pel­let size is the to­tal an­swer. In fact hemp and caster can be a far bet­ter op­tion.
