DAVE’S FEEDER RIG
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.
