Fishing at a feeder means a specific technique of stationary fishing, mainly fishing on primers with dedicated equipment, a torch or lead, and special mounts. Fishing at the feeder is very precise fishing because the goal is that the bait and the bait are next to each other and create a trapping area where, by creating a high density of fish, we can make them competitive for food and therefore less cautious, so easier to catch.

The word feeder comes from English and refers to the current basket, which is specific to this fishing technique. The vast majority of the usual terms in this technique are borrowed directly from English. See more.

Is this feeder fishing a fashion?

This type of fishing has become a real phenomenon, and year after year more and more fishers adopt this fishing style all over the world but not because it is a fashion but because it is a simple and very effective method to catch. More is easy to learn. Basically anyone who has found a fishing tackle in the past will have no difficulty in adopting fishing at the feeder.

The relatively small number of accessories and the decent cost of the equipment used can not be ignored, and nowadays the producers come to the fishermen with a wide range of tools and accessories to meet any requirements and pockets.

Relative to other types and techniques of fishing, fishing gear at the feeder can be considered rather inexpensive.

Special Feeder Equipment?

Yes, this type of fishing involves the use of dedicated equipment that you can find by visiting the ProFishingGearReviews site.

Feeder rods are distinguished by the large number of rings that allow a uniform distribution of the tension in the blank but also through the 2 or 4 different power and action peaks that equip these rods.

There is currently a wide range of models with a different action, power and length that satisfy all the exigencies of fishers whether they choose to fish on the river or plow after carp or rabbit, and their cataloging is largely dependent on the power : Light (or Picker), Medium and Heavy. The feeder tip is locked.

In feeder fishing, we use reels dedicated to this technique, reels devoted to game fishing, fishing for kidnappers, and universal reels.

Many fishermen tend to choose the reels according to the number of bearings that fit a coil, but this urban legend should be abolished. In feeder fishing, it is advisable to choose the coil according to the launch line, fishing style, and the target fish. Fundamental are the technical aspects of the reels, the materials from which they are built must be durable, lightweight and wear-resistant, the casing securely sealed, the roller bearings, the fine-adjusting brake. We will always choose the reel according to the length and weight of the rope, but also depending on the distance we want to fish, the ratio is one that is directly proportional.

As a rule, the size of the reels can be classified as follows:

  • – For Picker rods, we will most often opt for 2500 and 3000 reels
  • – For Medium rods, we will pick for reels between 3000 and 4500
  • – For Heavy Ranges, we will choose coils ranging from 4000 to 6000

In feeder fishing, besides the specific line, the so-called “staggering coolest” and method type ammunition (and variations thereof) are used. Of course, you can also fish with a simple lead in their place, air technique is known as “lingering.”

Feeders, method mowers or arc type, pellet feeder, are specific names targeting various devices whose primary purpose is to carry lure or pellets on the bottom of the water to call/attract fish. So I am using them, and I create a trap, because next to the basket or buried in the current method we will have the bait hook.

Additional info:

The basis of the feeder fishery is the use of Groundbait, consisting of flours, rusks, grains, flavors, salt or sweeteners. There are a lot of grams of bait on the market, with granular flavors and different colors covering all the fisherman’s needs and addressing any species of fish that we wish to lure.

Fishing gears

The mountings used in feeder fishing are an ample subject, from which we will try in the following, to select only a few aspects. In this sense, we will try to talk about the feeder fishing mount that we use most often in various situations.

Whether fishing on the lake or the river, the feeder fishery should be as simple as possible, be appropriate to the rules of the pond, but also to the baits used and the size of the fish we aim to fish. In this regard, when deciding what species we want to catch, we will adapt all the terminal equipment: the moments, the hooks, the length and the diameter of the string, – to satisfy the specifics of each party. That’s why it’s good to adapt the fishing gear to the feeder used. It should also be borne in mind that, sometimes at times, it is necessary to change the type of fishing tackle to the feeder used during the fishing trip.

The most used feeder fishing mounts are: Sliding mount, method mount, antitank mount, paternoster mount – and its varicata often called foot mount, helicopter mount.

Among the most commonly used mounts, we include the following:

Inline feeder fishing for the “method.”

The “inline” mount for the “method” momentum – is mainly used for parties where we track large fish such as carp, barbell, carafe or big rabbit. The current method is inserted on the main thread or the front, it is free sliding or blocked with a stop and has either a quick connector or a whirlwind to catch the strings. In this case, it is intended that the stains will not be felt in the first phase of the trace, which is usually due to the wearer’s weight. Moreover, because we have brought here the string, we recommend that you make the shortest, 5-10 cm, for maximum efficiency, indifferent if the bait used is floating or diving.
