Question Method Feeder Hook Lengths

How do you tie yours and what is your preferred end tackle?

For me a short mono or fluoro hooklength 5-7 inches max that puts the hookbait into the main lump of bait. I personally semi-fix the method feeder using a loose(ish) leger stop.

When tying the 4" hook lengths, do you just use a loop in the end of the hook length?

Yes, because most of the good flat method feeders like Preston and Drennan have some sort of quick-change bead to fasten your hooklength to.

Im using the guru 4" with a small swivel and a korda quick link,I find the quick change beads abit fiddley with my chubby hands and I dont know how to tie a loop anyway They can be used without the quick link,just attach to the swivel.

Peg two.
