A range of four sizes of ‘solid’ bodied Groundbait Feeders in a range of weights from 15g to 40g.
Aimed at river and stillwater use with a variety of baits and for a variety of species. For example, they can be used for chopped worm & caster work for bream, liquidised bread for chub, fishmeal, and pellets for barbel. Anything which can be held in place inside the feeder when plugged at either end with a type of crumb or cereal etc. Being ‘solid’ bodied, they do not empty everything throughout the depth of the water, creating a large column of feed. Although, anything at the very ends is subject to being washed by the water anyway, like any open-ended feeder – but keep the vast majority in place until the feeder hits the bottom.
The secure boom is flexible, which helps when filling the feeder, as it flexes enough to move out of the way for single-handed scooping and filling. The medium-sized eye on the swivel is very helpful for anyone who has the feeder threaded onto the mainline. It helps to prevent clogging due to any weed and/or rubbish coming down the mainline. This can be a problem on winter rivers when they are carrying extra water. It also allows the use of a Clip or Snap link swivel more easily, with less fiddling when trying to attach the two parts.
The oval-shaped holes running along the bottom of each feeder mean that you can easily attach a small balancing lead. On all our feeders, these holes are all the same size and the same distance up from the existing weights. The existing weights are also deliberately made the exact same width as each other, at approx 20mm. This construction then provides a very neat fixing with less chance of the line being snagged or damaged. On the bigger sizes of feeder some holes can be joined together to make a longer slot by carefully trimming between them following the mouldings ensuring you get a much neater cut and not a very rough and random edge.
The body and weight sizes are the same as the equivalent plastic mesh feeders, so you can change like-for-like.
Actual sizes available with their approximate weights are:
- Small 15g, 50g, 25g
- Medium 20g, 25g, 30g
- Large 20g, 25g, 30g, 40g
- Extra Large 30g, 40g
