    You could try getting your wire mesh from Cadisch, I've ordered from them before and they've always been great. See the link below:

      I'd get yourself a selection of cage feeders in different sizes and weights mate (drennan gripmesh or similar) and some preston flatbed methods and a method mould-this should cover you for most of your feeder work. I've just bought some micro cage feeders ny nisa-tiny little things with 12 or 20 gram weights,ideal for pellet or groundbait-but to be honest the drennan cage and preston method feeders should get you started nicely.

        Drennan gripmesh & Nick Larkins Nisa feeders are the ones to use as Paul says the tiny Nisa are brilliant & the gripmesh are superb with micro pellets

          You don't say where you are fishing. I would use metal for rivers and plastic mesh for lakes and commercials. Don't restrict yourself to mesh feeders though, you will need some normal plastic feeders for deeper water.

          My preference are for Nisa Feeders but he is in my club and a personal friend :-)

            No, you will need cage feeders for deeper water, if you use plastic feeders in deep water all the groundbait will have come out long before it gets to the bottom.

              Don't like the gripmesh as bait will often stay in too well and not come out quick enough! I use the Drennan wire 1s in Mini or Small been the biggest I use. Also add an extra strip of lead but seen some on Ebay that look ok from BlueLinda!

                      I obviously I didn't explain myself properly. I wasn't referring to plastic cage feeders as against metal cage feeders but normal plastic feeders with the odd hole in it. Sometimes solid plastic feeders with no holes at all that Nisa Feeders make. Having said that it depends upon what you call deep and how you mix your groundbait. on some commercials 6 foot is 'deep'! There are times when some groundbait coming out on the way down is just what you want. It all off loading at 2 foot in 25 foot isn't good though! I often use plastic cage feeders on the River Yare which pulls hard and is often 15 foot deep. It all depends upon how and what you mix.

                      Like Nathan, not a fan of gripmesh feeders in general for the same reason.
