  • Best line for feeder fishing

    What's the best line for fishing for skimmers & bream 30yd chuck into 20ft of water?

  • #2
    I use the new Colmic feeder line, very low stretch and its £5.00 for 250 meters

      Something with very little stretch is best so shy bites from skimmers register well at the tip. Purists would probably say use braid as it has no stretch, but a lot of waters ban it. A lot of modern monofilaments have 'controlled stretch' though, I like Preston Reflo Direct for feeder fishing.

        Thanks for that, been using reflo direct in 5.5 lb and suffered a few crack offs just latley, might be a bad batch? Thanks for the replies! John.

              What size/weight of feeder you using? I've had reflo direct (6lb i think) on one of my spools for a couple of years and don't think I've had any problems, usually use it to chuck the 30g large size Preston method feeders with the line clipped up, can't remember having any crack offs.

                ive just recently got onto the maver stone river line - very happy with it! - very little stretch, sinks far quicker than owt else i ve used. very smooth casting, shows up bites very well (50+ yards in deep water)-its great if ya on the bomb catching quickly! & its robust too! .......£5 for 150m - defo worth a look though it only comes in 3 diameters 0.18/0.20/0.22

                  Sounds good stuff! I think it might be a bad batch as basically the same set up as Steve I'm using the 5.5lb with a 30g preston large feeder. I've tried braid but can't get on with it, and as john says you probably can't go wrong with maxima! I'll have a think cheers!!
