DRENNAN WIRE CAGE
The original Drennan wire cage feeders still take some beating for shortrange work.
I use them at places like Porth Reservoir for skimmer fishing, sticking to the smaller Micro, Mini and Small sizes, although I do tend to add a bit of extra lead to them – in their original form they are a bit light.
This allows me to get my line tight to the feeder that little bit quicker once it hits the bottom.
This is vital when skimmer fishing, as bites often come on the drop, so the quicker you can tighten up, the better.
