Many novice anglers, For the first time after seeing feeder feeders on the shelves, they begin to be actively interested in what they are for. This specialized gear, in addition to its main function of delivering the feed mixture directly to the fishing site, fulfills the role of the sinker as well. It at the expense of its weight allows you to throw the leashes with hooks for a sufficiently long distance and at the same time keeps the hook in place, where at this time the fish feed. All feeder feeders differ from each other primarily in weight, shape and material of manufacture. Sometimes this rig is silicone or metal. The frame can be any - in the form of a grid or sheet with small apertures. It is impossible to say which of them is better, because they are strictly specialized under certain conditions of catching.
Plastic feeder feeders are very useful when fishing at pronounced depth changes. This affects when it is necessary to pull the subject under consideration from the thickets of aquatic vegetation with force. In such difficult conditions, after a regular cut, an empty silicone feeder (due to its low weight) will soar in the water column, and not sink to the bottom. Therefore, it is easier to carry it through a complex area.
Feeder feeders are also divided into two types: open and closed. This is due primarily to various feeding methods. On standing water, open-type feeding troughs are used more often. The method of casting is the following: after the fall of the feeder follows a short sharp jerk, and all the lure is on the bottom. On the current, however, only a closed-type tackle is used. It is much more convenient and practical. And the more pronounced the flow, the smaller the holes in the trough. Through them the lure is gradually washed away. At the same time, a fragrant trail that attracts hungry fish is carried along the stream.
There are separate feeders for feeder fishing, which are made for sponge. But they are used very rarely. The thing is that the price for them is far from being affordable. Most often use the usual tackle, but add the feed sponge in the feed mixture. This gives an excellent result and noticeably activates the number of bites.
When choosing a particular model of the trough, it is necessary to take into account that each feeder rod is designed for a certain weight. And exceed it strictly is not recommended. All the data can be asked from the seller-consultant or find the appropriate note on the rod itself. In order not to be mistaken with the weight of the feeder, it must be filled with a mixture, and then weighed. If the weight exceeds the permissible parameters, then it is fraught with constant cuttings of the line and loss of tackle, which, by the way, is not cheap.
Many experienced anglers use self-made feeder feeders. They are much cheaper and in principle work just as well as factory ones. If you take into account that for each type of pond you need your kinds of feeders, and one or two here you can not manage, making this gear with your own hands becomes more profitable doubly. Moreover, the bottom relief is usually inhomogeneous, and gear losses, alas, are inevitable.
