THE RIGHT FEEDER SIZE

Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

WITH the wa­ter be­ing cold and clear due to the time of year I didn’t feel that bosh­ing a big feeder in with lots of bait was ever go­ing to work.

For me it was all about Nisa mini and mi­cro plas­tic cage feed­ers.

As a rule I kicked off with the mini ver­sion as the fish tended to feed early. I switched to the mi­cro feeder later in the match as the fish be­came spooky and bites started to slow up.

In ef­fect this was a very neg­a­tive ap­proach, but due to the num­bers of fish I caught it gave me a pos­i­tive out­come.

A lit­tle word about feeder weights – nor­mally, to catch quickly, I like heavy 44g feed­ers but with the wa­ter be­ing cold and clear I felt this would spook the fish. In­stead I dropped down to 28g and 20g feed­ers to try and min­imise the dis­tur­bance ev­ery time one hit the wa­ter.
