DON’T FORGET THE MAG­GOT FEEDER

Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

THE mag­got feeder burst back on to the scene last win­ter and I can see it play­ing a big part in my fish­ing this sea­son too.

With more and more fish­eries stock­ing mag­got-lov­ing F1s, it makes per­fect sense.

The key to suc­cess with the mag­got feeder is to choose the right size. Many an­glers make the mis­take of fish­ing too big a feeder which tends to spook the fish in the clear wa­ter.

I pre­fer to use a tiny mag­got feeder with just enough weight on to cast it the re­quired dis­tance.

This way I am not over­feed­ing the swim and at the same time I’m keep­ing dis­tur­bance down to a min­i­mum.

A lit­tle tip with mag­got feed­ers is that when it’s cold make sure you en­large the holes on the feeder. That way, even on the cold­est of days, the mag­gots will all leave the feeder be­fore you reel it back in.

I usu­ally use a tiny mag­got feeder.
