FEEDER OP­TIONS

Angling Times (UK) - - TIP & TACTICS -

I gen­er­ally use Ko­rum Mesh Feed­ers for my big-river bar­bel fish­ing, and will carry a range of weights and sizes to give me op­tions on the bank. Some­times you’ll find you need to feed more bait, at which point bigger feed­ers are the or­der of the day, while at other times it can pay to cut back so hav­ing smaller feed­ers to hand is vi­tal, es­pe­cially on pres­sured venues. Dif­fer­ent weight feed­ers also al­low you to cope with the dif­fer­ent lev­els of flow on the river. These Ko­rum Mesh Feed­ers fea­ture a large, low-pro­file base weight to help them hug the bot­tom. They also have a de­cent-sized mesh on them which en­sures the bait is ac­tu­ally re­leased into the swim – there’s no point reel­ing in to find there’s still bait in the feeder be­cause it can’t es­cape through nar­row-gauge mesh! I’ll be talk­ing about feeder choices in a bit more de­tail next week.
