How to collect feeder gear?

Feeder, as a fishing tackle, is becoming increasingly popular with professionals and beginners. But it is not enough just to buy rather expensive accessories, which are sold now in almost any specialty store. It is more important to collect the feeder gear correctly, so that it becomes a continuation of the arms, and that any movement of the fish is noticeable to the fisherman. How to do this, we will discuss in this article.

Feeder rod

Depending on the fishing conditions (pond or river), we choose a sliding rod from 3.3 to 3.9 meters with a test load from 20 to 100 grams. An additional “nod”, differing in sensitivity from the main body, is required to easily detect the presence of fish. The bite alarm can be electronic. To learn how to choose all kinds of fishing gear, read the section Fishing Tackle.

Spinning reel

It has long been in the past those days when the fishing line was wound up on wire fasteners located on the rod body.In addition, long casting without the help of inertia-free coils is almost impossible. It is best to use open coils. This eliminates the possibility of tangling the fishing line in the "beard". Also pay attention to such characteristics as: power, the presence of friction brakes, ease and smoothness, weight, materials used in the design.

Main line

You can use wicker (for more distant casts with a relatively clean bottom), and you can use monofilament (it is better suited at short distances, since it has a greater extensibility). Pletenka - up to 0.14 mm. Mono - up to 0.3 mm.

Feeding trough, sinker

The standard model is a “cage” of various shapes and sizes. The main condition is that its weight does not exceed the test load of the selected rod with the bait. The weight is additionally used when catching cautious fish, for example, carp or tench.


For its production is usually used monoleska 0.12 - 0.2 mm. The selected diameter directly depends on the size of the intended catch and also on the presence of bottom obstacles in the place of catch (too thin - it can simply break). The length of the lead varies from 20 cm to one meter.


The sizes are determined by the type of bait. For moth and moldy worm - numbers from 12 to 18, sharp and small. For the worm, we take 4-8 with a long forearm.


It is better to choose adjustable, to change the angle of the feeder, as well as a stand that allows you to install multiple rods.
