A basic feeder rig for carp

 (Method Feeder) 

 

This basic feeder rig is suitable for use with method feeders when fishing for small to medium sized carp.

 

 

You will need:

  1. Method feeder (small/medium in weight). 

  2. Swivel to fit in the end of the feeder (most method feeders come supplied with one). 

  3. Small quick change link.  

  4. Hooklink 3lb up to 6lb depending on the size of carp you are targeting and your main line.

  5. Hooks, Size will depend on size of carp you are targeting, your chosen bait and your hooklink.

Remove the swivel from the end of the feeder and pass your main line though the method feeder, making sure you start at the rubber sleeve end.

Next attach your mainline to the swivel using a polamar or blood knot and slide feeder gently down the mainline untill the swivel sits inside the feeder.

Then take a length of your hooklink, about twelve inches long and tie a hook to one end (using either a blood knot or a knotless knot if you are using a hair rig).

Then tie a quick change link to the other end ensuring the finished length is approximately 8 inches long. You can vary the length of your hooklink, but as a rule a method feeder hooklink is shorter than a straight forward hooklink.

Finally attach the quick link to the swivel in the feeder and your ready to go.
