How to collect feeder tackle for beginners, types of feeder snap

Proper Assembly feeder tackle

Recently, widespread feeder fishing. The feeder is nothing but a kind of bottom gear that was refined in England, based on all known zakidushek and donok.

Moreover, the feeder is a deep modernization because it improved almost everything from fishing rods and ending with the accessories, which includes feeders. Generally used a powerful, but flexible rod able to throw the tackle is very far from the shore.

What is feeder tackle?

The feeder is one of the famous tools designed for bottom fishing (peaceful fish), using feeder, specially designed rods and feeders, which also performs the role of the sinkers. The indicator takes in these rods are replaceable vershinki some flexibility, designed for different fishing conditions. This nuance can be attributed to the characteristics of feeder fishing. What will it take to fishing was considered to be the feeder?

The rod. For feeder fishing available in the special fishing rods like telescopic, and sh. The presence of complete different flexibility of pinnacles, allows the use of different weight feeders. In this case, instead of the feeders, you can set the usual sinkers, depending on conditions of catching. So resetchat:

  • pickery – quivertip for fishing with gruselle;
  • feeder-quivertip for fishing with feeders.

In retail outlets, there are fishing rods, length from 1.8 to 4.5 m depending on the length of the rod depends on casting distance. The apex are its sensitivity and its test. To avoid confusion in the installation process, they are painted in individual colors.

Coil. Bottom fishing is not demanding to special indicators of coils, so any spinning reel equipped with front or rear drag. When fishing for carp or carp, especially large, you will need a reel with beltranena.

The main fishing line. Since it is assumed to fish at a considerable distance from the shore, it is best to take braided line. It does not stretch and is able to quickly transfer bite on the tip of the feeder. Besides, it is stronger and more resistant monofilament line.

Feeder. Feeder, its size and its weight is chosen depending on the casting distance, and the presence of flow. As to the form of the trough, it does not matter.

Leash. As the leashes are used monofilament fishing line or fluorocarbon. More recently, use fluorocarbon as it is invisible in water to fish. This should always be set leashes, breaking load less than the breaking load of the main line.

Hooks. Choose the hooks depending on the species of harvested fish. For example, when fishing for carp use carp hooks. The hooks are both from thin and thick wire.

Stand under the rod. Feeder fishing does not involve the permanent retention of the rod in his hands, like fishing with an ordinary rod with a float. After throwing the tackle into the water, the rod rests on the stand. As you can use regular flier of wood, cut out directly on the pond.

How to choose a feeder rod?

Depending on where you will be fishing and what will be caught fish and selected feeder rod.

Test feeder rod

This indicator is important because it determines how far will the abandoned feeder with the bait, having a certain weight. In connection with this feeder rod parts:

  • on ultralajtovogo with the dough to 30 g;
  • in light with the test up to 60 g, inclusive;
  • the medium class with the test from 60 to 80 g;
  • medium-heavy with a test from 80 to 100 g;
  • on heavy test from 100 to 120 g;
  • for extra-heavy dough between 120 g and more.

It is not recommended to go beyond the limitations of the test, since the extra grams to overload the tip and can lead to breakage. If you use feeders, weight less than a test indicator, it will lead to a reduction in the sensitivity of feeder tackle.

Length feeder rods

The longer the rod, the farther you will be able to throw the snap. Therefore, choosing a rod, should be taken into account, how far you have to throw the tackle. If the pond is small, then the long rod is not needed. Therefore, it is necessary to pay attention to the rod, a length of 2 to 4 m.

Stroy feeder rod

Feeder rods differ not only in test but also in the ranks. System can be:

  • Slow. The form of this rod is bent fully, as in the case of casts, and in the case of the fish playing.
  • Fast. Typically, in such rods the curve of its upper part. These rods very quickly react to the bite of the fish and allow it to fully control when towing.
  • Average. Like the rod reacts differently to various loads. At low loads only works the upper part, and under increasing load can be switched on and the middle part.
  • Coil selection

    Special requirements to the coil for feeder gear will not extend. In this case, you need to consider that you have to cast heavy feeders at a considerable distance. Therefore, the coil must be reliable and be sure to have a back or front clutch. In addition, if you plan to catch large fish, you need baitrunner to smooth out the jerks powerful fish.

    The coil size depends on the thickness of the line and from its quantity, or rather its length. Typically, the coil is wound not less than 150 m line. When fishing for carp or other large fish on large reservoirs, it may be 150 meters.

    Basically, out of the coil with average gear ratios and traction.

    Equally important is the number of bearings in the coil. The best option is the 5-6 bearings. The number of bearings depends on the quality of the coil that is connected with even and smooth winding of fishing line. Although this measure is more fundamental to pick the spinning.

    A very important point! The more bearings, the more expensive coil. Although the number of bearings in the reel for feeder fishing does not matter. You can fish with one bearing what many anglers do.

    Fishing line, leashes and hooks for feeder

    Monofilament fishing line or braided fishing line (cord). The preferred embodiment is a braided fishing line, especially if fishing is carried out at a distance of 70-100 meters. In addition, it has a greater tensile strength, more wear resistant, it is still not stretched. This makes the tackle at times more sensitive compared with the use of monofilament line, unless, of course, this is not a cheap Chinese fake.

    At distances of catching up to 20 or 30 meters suitable monofilament fishing line. Therefore, under similar conditions of fishing and also when fishing in stagnant water, it is safe to use monofilament line and not pay the extra money.

    Fishing line for leads. As a rule, for the manufacture of leashes used monofilament fishing line. Its thickness is determined depending on weight of fish. When fishing for carp or roach, enough leash, with a diameter of 0.1-0.12 mm. While fishing for bream where can bite the instance of medium size, you can set the leash with a thickness of 0.2 mm, when the thickness of the main fishing line 0,25-0,35 mm.

    In recent times, as the drive pin material is fluorocarbon. It is perfect for this because it is invisible in water, although its characteristics are slightly inferior to monofilament fishing line. But when you consider that it is not visible for the fish, then you can install a leash and a larger diameter.

    Hooks for the feeder. As a rule, feeder tackle is equipped with the usual hooks. At the same time, they are selected by size depending on bait and size of fish. The main thing that it fits in your mouth fish. At the same time, we must consider that every form of fish has its mouth size.

    Feeder for feeder

    Depending on the nature of the bottom of the reservoir has to decide what to use the bird feeder or load, streamlined shape. if the bottom is muddy or covered with grass, the feeder may simply drown in the mud or grass and the sense of it is zero. In such cases, install a regular sinker, but the point of fishing stuff in a different way. For example, if the point of fishing not far from shore, the bait can roll into balls and throw hand.


    Leash length may correspond to 15-20 cm and more. If fishing is on the river, then the length of leads is increased to 50 cm and more. For example, when catching sabrefish, leash length can range from 1.5 to 2 meters. In this case, especially on the river, the length of the leash is established experimentally.

    Signaller of bite

    When fishing on the feeder, the alarm of bites are replaceable vershinki. This is particularly true of their purpose. If during the bite, the angler will be absent, it is likely that he fish is not caught, because you need time to make cuttings.

    Many anglers use electronic signaling that is much more convenient and not necessarily “stuck” near the rods. This is especially true when fishing in the dark, when the rod tip is just not noticeable.


    Feeder fishing implies the existence of a stand to set the rod at a certain angle, for continuous monitoring, for his tip. As supports can be used:

    • Wooden flyer. They are very affordable and easy.
    • The butt holders. Not convenient, especially in the presence of wind.
    • The factory racks from metal (like the flyers of wood). Are lightweight and allow height adjustment. Widely used by anglers, as not all water bodies can be cut out wooden flyer.
    • Rod-pods. It is expensive, and therefore not every angler can afford such a stand. It is possible to accommodate 3-4 rods, which is very convenient.

    The types of feeder snap

    Several varieties of feeder snap-in, differing:

  • Mounting the top: deaf or moving.
  • The type of feeders: open or closed.
  • Placement of the leash: below or above the trough.
  • Paternoster

    This is the most common and easiest option feeder a snap. This snap leash is placed below the trough. To get the “paternoster” on the main fishing line to form two loops. The smaller loop fits on the end of the main fishing line. Her future is attached to the leash with a hook. The second loop, a larger size is formed on the removal of 25-30 cm from the first. To it is attached the feeder. The attachment of the leash “loop by loop”, and for attachment of the feeders can be applied another way, using vertluzhnoj and latches, and clasps.

    Symmetric and asymmetric loop

    This type of rig allows you to attach a feeder moving means. This snap-in feeder is above the leash. The sliding mounting is done as follows: take the cut fishing line, about 1 meter long and folded in half so that one end was longer than the other at 15-20 cm.

    At the end of the fishing line folded in half to fit in a small loop, to which is attached a leash. After that, the line is tightly curled and, in 5-10 turns, fit the surgical site. On a long stretch of fishing line puts on a swivel, with Velcro, for fastening the trough. After this, the ends of the line contact so that the shoulders of a large loop which will slide feeder, was the same. The result is snap, which is called symmetric. On the opposite, from the end of the leash, you need to create another loop to snap-connect with the main line.

    Asymmetrical loop fit in the same way, but with the difference that loop, which slip trough, must have shoulders of different lengths. In this case, the feeder must be attached to a longer shoulder.

    Tube protivogerpetical

    The basis of the snap-in is the sliding mounting with a feeder that connects with a straw protivoparazitarian. Tube dressed on the main line, and top and bottom tubes on the main fishing line includes a restrictive ring. They restrict the free running of the tube, to which is attached a leash.


    This version of the snap also implies the use of tubes of protivotankovaya, but for mounting feeders.


    This is a very simple snap, but similar to snap with a sliding trough. The only difference is that the feeder is attached to the main fishing line. Limit the slide feeder on the main line 2 stopper placed on the top and bottom of the trough. By the end of the main fishing line is attached to the leash with a hook.


    This snap-in, where the feeder is mounted on the dull end of the main line and the leash moves through the line. Limit the slipping of leash 2 is the same stopper. The leash is mounted to the swivel snap. On the main fishing line is set two catches: 1 at a distance of 25-30 cm from the trough, and the other stopper can be installed at any distance. The main thing that the lever rotated freely around the fishing line. Rigging the helicopter is suitable for fishing in the rivers flowing.

    How to assemble a snap-in feeder, step by step instructions:

  • Going to the rod and the tip. All rings should be placed on the same line.
  • Set the reel on the reel seat.
  • The coil is wound the fishing line, after which it passes through all the rings.
  • By the end of the line need necessarily to secure the leader, if you are using heavy feeders.
  • To shock leader is attached to the apparatus, which are matched to specific fishing conditions.
  • After these actions we can say that feeder tackle is ready for use.

    How to make efficient feeder tackle?

    Catching capacity feeder tackle depends on such factors as the right choice of equipment, which would take into account all the characteristics of how the pond and tackle in General.

    Feeder tackle to catch bream

    First you need to find catchability place where it can be bream. If fishing is on the river, it is possible to use heavy feeders weighing up to 100 grams. If it is a pond with stagnant water, the weight of the trough may be less. But at the same time, we should not forget that the light feeder not abandoned.

    Fishing for bream will fit the rod, a length of from 3 to 4 meters, with the test 100-120 grams. The leash can have a diameter of about 0.18 mm. Hooks are matched with the expectation to use such tips as worms, barley, peas and corn.

    Suitable tooling, such as “paternoster”, “asymmetric loop, a symmetrical loop” tube protivogerpetical and others.

    Feeder tackle for carp

    When picking feeder tackle for carp fishing, you should consider the fact that it is a very strong fish that will be out as the fishing rod and reel, not to mention the open snap.

    Basically, choose a rod with a length of about 4 meters and install the coil, size of 5000-6000, not less. The leash can be used special carp as hooks. The thickness of the leash of monofilament line should be not less than 0.25 mm. Thickness main fishing line is 0.35-0.4 mm.

    Feeder tackle for carp fishing

    Fishing for carp does not imply the availability of powerful gear. Enough of the rod’s length is 2,5-3 meters, equipped with reel, size 2000. Perhaps the use of a leash, thickness 0,08-0,12 mm, and the main fishing line 0.2 mm. And quite normal monofilament line. Hook, no larger than No. 6, according to the international classification.
