What is a feeder? What is its advantage?

Konstantin Chuguev aka chkb – the head of the bottom fishing section of the Fed of the NSO, a multiple winner and winner of various competitions, has 1 sport category in fishing, will help us to understand the principle of the feeder itself and tell what the essence of this type of fishing is.

Quote: “Feeder fishing is a type of bottom fishing using a special feeder rod with interchangeable tips (quivertip). Registration bite is carried out only at the tip of the rod. Also various installations are used for fastening the feeding troughs equipped with only one leash with one hook.

Feeder fishing has a tremendous advantage over a simple donk. The main advantage is that the feeder rod is more accurate and, if necessary, long casting. In feeder fishing, very frequent casts occur (every 1-3 minutes) at one selected point, thereby concentrating a large amount of food in one place on the bottom, and this, in turn, attracts a large number of fish. ”

Which feeder to choose a novice fisherman?

Alphabet feeder. Tips from masters of fishingVyacheslav Redkin aka tanai will help us to understand this fundamental issue and give practical advice. He started professionally interested in feeder fishing 5 years ago, and already in 2017, when bottom fishing competitions began to be held in Novosibirsk, he decided to try his hand at sports. In the same year he became the champion of the Novosibirsk region as a member of the team, and after that he took the 2nd place in the championship of the Kemerovo region. 2018 due to employment missed, and in 2019 at the City Championship continued to win prizes – 3 team place in the team "I know fishing."

Quote: "Which feeder to choose? Before you go to the store, you need to know what you want, because in 90% of the stores, when asked to sell a feeder, you will be offered a so-called "crocodile". In order to decide what you want, you need to answer a few questions.

The first, and perhaps most important, is your budget. One thing that pleases is that now there are a lot of decent rods for adequate money.
The second is the pond in which you are going to fish.

If you want to catch a summer cottage pond on weekends, and on weekdays to go to the Ob in the evenings, then I will upset you, there are no universal rods.

And so, we decided on the budget and the reservoir, we begin to choose. If you prefer small ponds, small rivers with a very slow flow, where the fishing distance will be up to 30 meters – you should buy a so-called picerial rod in height of 3 – 3.3 meters and with a dough of 25-50 grams. If the distance increases to 50 + meters, then you will need a rod with a height of 3.6 meters. The test can be selected up to 70 grams if you catch in a pond without a current. If this is a reservoir with moderate estrus, then you should choose a rod more powerful – up to 90-110 grams. With such a rod you can already catch Karpik on a platnik tree, go to the Moody, and even go fishing on Ob in some places. Next come heavy and extra heavy. These are rods with a height of 3.9, 4.2, and 4.5 meters. 4.5 m I never caught and did not understand yet, but did I need it, but 3.9 and 4.2 – yes, it is. Especially those who prefer fast-flowing rivers and you need a long-distance casting. A 4.2 m rod with a correct coil of 6000 size, with proper skill, you can “put” the feeder to a point at a distance of up to 100 meters. And with a 140-180 g dough rod you can throw heavy feeders of 100, 120 g plus food, and they will lie quietly on the bottom of a river like the Ob. At the rod in the growth of 3.9 comfortable distance is 70-80 meters.

Comfortable distance is the distance to which, with a certain skill, you can easily send a feeder sitting in a chair. From the first time, it is unlikely to succeed in throwing it so well, everything will come with training and experience.

Seminar number 1 is devoted to feeder rods and coils, their classification and selection.

I said that there are no universal rods, but perhaps this can be called a rod in height of 3.6 and with a test of about 120 grams. But how universal is it? This rod is not very comfortable to catch at small distances due to frequent re-casting and weight of the rod – all the buzz from fishing will quickly change to fatigue. In the far casting also have to invest in full. We are going to go fishing for pleasure first of all, and I would recommend to choose a fishing rod, so as not to pyzhitsya and comfortably catch fish.

Another very important criterion when choosing a rod for a beginner angler is the availability of spare parts for sale. I know many who have long been catching on the feeder and still, from time to time, they break quivertips. In 99% of cases, they break only because of the mistake of the fisherman. And, of course, a newcomer to these errors is not insured. In the city, of course, the number of stores selling the correct feeder rods is growing, but spare parts can be bought through online stores, sometimes even cheaper than ours. Keep this in mind when choosing your first feeder rod. ”

Tooling feeder, where to start?

Alphabet feeder. Tips from masters of fishingKonstantin Filatov aka Armagedon1, the repeated winner of the competition on feeder fishing, has 1 sports category. He will advise the best montages for the feeder, from which it should start for beginners and describe the pros and cons of the most common.

Quote: "I will describe the disadvantages and advantages of snap-ins.

1. Let's start with a simple, universal snap-in called paternoster. What are the advantages of this snap? The first and most important thing is the simplicity of knitting for a beginner, the second is self-sub-cutting. Big gear is suitable for flow, minus – when biting (moving fish towards the shore), you may not see biting.

2. The second snap for simplicity is the so-called two node rig or "helicopter". Use this tooling only for the flow. Pros – quickly fit, simplicity, gives samopodsechku. Cons – not at all suitable for standing water.

3. Well, the latest sports equipment – sliding tooling. Pluses – very sensitive, suitable for all water bodies. Minus – long installation. Although if you use it often, it will not make it difficult for you. ”

For more information about the types of installation can be found in the video from the seminars.

Seminar number 2 is devoted to feeder bait, the correct batch and its mechanics, types of feeders, feeder assemblies, hooks and leashes.

Bait when catching on feeder

Konstantin Chuguev aka chkb will help to understand this rather extensive question.

Quotation: “In feeder fishing, special feeder baits are used in a dry form, for the preparation of which it is necessary to add a certain amount of water in several stages so that the mixture is fed and becomes the desired consistency.

According to the mechanical properties of the bait made into two types:

inert, having heavier fractions and components;
dusty, having a lighter fraction and suspended particles.

Therefore, the bait producers divide their compositions according to the species composition of the fish. Accordingly, the bait "Bream", "Carp", "Crucian" have a heavier and larger fraction, so that the feed lies on the bottom and does not "dust", i.e. light particles did not float, thereby not attracting smaller fish from the water column. A bait "Roach" have lighter and smaller pop-up particles. Not rarely in one batch will correctly mix two different types of baits, for example, “Bream” and “Roach”. This is done so that a part of the bait lies on the bottom and a part attracts smaller fish, thereby creating a stir in the place of fishing. Such movements at the fishing point will quickly attract large fish, for which treats are already prepared in the form of heavier and larger particles.

Also, bait manufacturers often flavor their mixtures with different flavors to better attract fish. Aromas can be divided into two types:

sweet flavors such as chocolate, vanilla, caramel, strawberry, etc .;
spice mixes such as various spices, coriander, cinnamon, garlic, dill, etc.

Seminar number 2 is devoted to feeder bait, the correct batch and its mechanics, types of feeders, feeder assemblies, hooks and leashes.

What flavors to choose? There is no definite answer to that question; it all depends on the preference of the fish in a particular water body or at a particular time of the year. But it can be said that sweet smells work better in warm water in summer, and spices are more suitable for cold water in spring and autumn. Although there is a big field for experiments.

Well, the last thing that can be divided bait – this is the color. Color bait is black, brown, yellow, red and green. Here you can give such advice. Bright bait, such as yellow and red is best used for large fish and in warm water. Green bait is good to use on lakes and crucian carp. Dark and black bait work well in cold and very clear water.

It is important to properly moisten the bait. As a rule, this is done in two or even three stages. With a strong overmoistening, the bait becomes very sticky, like clay, and thus is washed out of the trough badly and for a long time – it does not have the necessary mechanics. In turn, not until a moist bait has a lot of light fractions, which are not sufficiently soaked with water and easily float to the surface. Therefore, this is a very important process and it should be done in several stages, constantly checking the consistency. The bait should be molded under compression and easily crumble when a lump is destroyed.

You can add different types of cereals to lure as a large fraction, such as wheat, pearl barley, peas, yachka, etc. You can add them both directly to the finished, moisturized bait, and in the process of fishing in small portions to the feeder, so-called "In the case when a large fish is suitable."

Special mixes for catching on feeder

How to throw feeder trough?

Vyacheslav Redkin aka tanai, will try to clarify this point on the “paper”:

Quote: “It’s hard to answer this question in an interview. You can learn to knit hooks or feeder assembly, showing on the fingers, but to make a cast – it is better to learn only on the river with the rod in hand.

First – you need to decide on the fishing point. The distance to which should be comfortable for throwing it with your rod. So that it does not work out that after an hour and a half of fishing you are without arms, without legs and there is no longer any desire to catch. We define a landmark on the opposite bank. If you are going to catch at night, then the landmark should be noticeable by the light of the moon. It may be the tallest tree, a pillar, perhaps a lantern that will definitely shine all night. When choosing a fishing point, we have already decided on a distance, we “clip off” on the reel so that the feeder always falls in the same place. It is important! And we begin to feed the fish. There are several types of casting, but the simplest one that I would advise to a beginner fiderman is throwing from behind the head. Carefully start the rod back, whack a mark at our chosen landmark, be sure to check with your finger whether there is an overlap of the fishing line behind the tulip and actually throw.

Seminar number 3 is devoted to feeder casts, measuring the bottom, choosing a fishing point and fishing tactics depending on the season.

As soon as the trough has flown away, it is not necessary to pull the rod forward, the load will not fly away from this. Lift the rod vertically and hold it with one hand (without straining your hand) so that when the line hits the clip there will not be a trough shooting or even a clip from the spool. According to the casting technique in words, no longer tell, it remains to train. But when you learn how to perform this cast without harming yourself, others, and most importantly for the rod, it is important that the feeder falls exactly in the same place, then you can master other types of casting: pendulum and English, and possibly some other .

I will share one small life hack, it is suitable for those who will catch big fish on a paid pond. Since we have zaklipsovana distance, and the carp can peck, so that the rod will fly into the water. You need to take 3-5 steps back, to perform a cast. When the feeder lies on the bottom, gently reel the line and come closer to the shore, put the rod on the pokes and wait for a bite. You will have in stock a few meters of fishing line, which is enough for the first spurt of fish. "
