Feeder Fishing Edges

Legering or feeder fishing is an easy skill to learn, and an extremely effective way of catching fish in rivers and stillwaters. Fishing your bait hard on the bottom, without a float, allows you to accurately serve-up a feast of maggots, pellets or groundbait on the river or lakebed.

You can just cast out a straight lead, known as a bomb, with a single hookbait, a tactic best used in colder weather, but you’ll have most fun cramming a feeder with wriggling maggots or smelly groundbait to attract fish into your swim!

As those fish enjoy a free meal, one of them is sure to snaffle the bait on your hook. As it does, your line will tighten and the bite will register on the sensitive rod tip, which is known as a quiver. If it only moves by a tiny amount, sit on your hands and allow the bite to develop. When the tip pulls round properly, pick up the rod and strike smoothly.

The only time you don’t need to strike is if you are fishing a ‘Method’ feeder and the fish hook themselves.

TOP TIPS
Cast regularly to keep the feed going in – and the fish in your swim!
Cast accurately so that your feeder always lands on the dinner table!
Gently tighten your line to the rod tip, so you can see every bite!
