Default Ledgering for perch

Hi just wondering if any of you lot could help me out. I have thinking about going for perch in and around my local waters. The method I wanted to try is a free running ledger rig my main question can I use my feeder rod it has 3 x tips not sure on the TC. I know a lot of people use light Avon rods but I don't have one but I might have to buy one if my feeder won't do the job.

Thanks for any replys

No reason not to use it, if you want to use a light bobbin just point the rod towards the lead or feeder.

I am mostly using an ultralight picker rod when legering for perch and had the best results with lobworms on a waterknot paternoster. I use a parallel tip and not the tapered ones.

When free running I also use my medium heavy feeder rod and it works out well. Especially if you need more distance.

That depends on your swim and its current, as well as the lead's weight. I always prefer the lighter glasfiber tips.

Use as light a lead as you can get away with, and consider using a link leger setup. Everything to minimise resistance will also minimise the number of dropped runs.
