THERE’S has been a phe­nom­e­nal rise in the pop­u­lar­ity of feeder fish­ing in the UK and Europe in re­cent years – so much so that last week the Angling Trust an­nounced it was launch­ing a new Feeder Na­tional for next sum­mer. The win­ners will go through to a new World Club Feeder event.

The tac­tic has come a long way since the days of the ‘plas­tic pig’ but I’m de­lighted to see that the good old mag­got feeder hasn’t been for­got­ten amid the birth and rapid growth of Method, Hy­brid and pel­let feed­ers.

Right now it’s THE tac­tic to get on if you’re fish­ing rivers and still­wa­ters.

This week we’ve got ad­vice from our ex­perts, in­clud­ing World Feeder Champ Steve Ringer, whose ex­clu­sive col­umn re­veals why you’ve got to dig out those old block­ends, and ex­plains how to turn ev­ery bite into a fish in the net.

What you put in your feeder is cru­cial, and no-one knows more about bait than Dr Paul Garner. He’s got 10 deadly mixes and some great hook­bait edges that will trans­form your ses­sion on rivers and still­wa­ters. There’s also the age-old prob­lem of sink­ing the line with­out mov­ing your feeder out of po­si­tion, and Eng­land Feeder Team man­ager Tommy Pick­er­ing will show you the quick­est and eas­i­est way to do it. We’ve also got six sim­ple feeder rigs to tie, plus loads of bril­liant wa­ters where you can bag up. Give them a try this week!
