    can i still use a groundbait feeder on a fast river as i am going to the severn this weekend

    Yes but if you're fishing for Barbel and Chup a blockend feeder with caster, hemp and micro pellet would probably be better.

      Worms, I agree with Nathan. I fish a blockend on the fast flowing Itchen and it's surprising how the current will wash out small pellets and hemp as well as casters and maggots. I also use a bait dropper to get some feed down on the deck.

      Kamasan Black Caps are my preferred feeder fished on a running line with an 18 inches to 2 ft hook link.

      You can always enlarge the feeder holes if you reel in and find you have bait left in the feeder.
