  • Feeder Rod

    ?What kind of rod do you prefer for method feeder fishing,and what length? Thanks!
    I am a bit of a novice with the feeder and need some pointers to get me going..?is this the wrong time of year fer fishing the feeder.

    11ft works best for me but it kind of depends on the length of cast you need, the likely size of fish and the size of feeder and so on! I have a couple of Daiwa 'Connoisseur X' feeder rods which have a removable 2ft section so that they can be either 11ft or 13ft. These are brilliant rods and will easily cover most types of feeder fishing. At the longer length they will be ideal for long chucks on a big Bream water and at the shorter length I find they are perfect for most short to medium casts on our commercial venues. They will handle pretty much any fish from 8oz up to double figure Carp.

    I wouldn't say that this is the wrong time of year for the feeder but it really depends on the type of venue you're thinking of. I'm off to fish a match tomorrow and I'll be using a small pellet feeder for some of the time at least.

      You don't have to spend a fortune on a method rod Garbolino do them for around £24, called a rocket picker I think???
      With the temp falling now it's more usual to fish a bomb Into deeper water. Length depends on the distance, most of today's commies are short casts so between 9 and 11 feet long is ok.

      Hope this helps

        Ihave just purchased a 9ft and a 10ft Rocket picker £49 for the 2
        For the money they are ideal for stillwaters
        at a price that you can afford to abuse !!
        They are ideal

              Short range it has to be the tri cast power wand and long range depending on weight either the shimano stradic 12-14ft heavy feeder or the shimano 12-14ft aerocast heavy feeder.

                I use both Diawa & Shimano for all my long range fishing & Rivers
                The 2 Garbolinos are to leave set up for commercials only
                They seem ideal for that both Bullet proof & Affordable
                for that particular type of fishing
                Well worth the money

                  You can't beat the garbo's 4 the money,col-great little rods-i always carry a 9' set up in my holdall. I've got a shimano technium bomb rod which is gonna be ideal for shy bites in the winter. Still luv that tri-cast wand,though,only used it a couple of times.

                    All depends how far you're casting, further you cast, longer the rod needs to be but you can't cast short accurately without a short rod of 10ft or less. Feeder will still be working for a little longer at some venues but bomb is starting to take over now where I go or waggler.

                          A mate of mine is selling his Daiwa D Feeder @ 11ft,would you lads consider this to be an ideal starter F rod,or would you go for something entirely different,and also ??What do you use as a bite indicator,or is the tip itself the bite indicator.

                            Yes, good rods for money I've been told and the tip is the bite indicator, gets pulled round or drops back.
