    Default What are these feeders called???

    I need some more of these and can't find where I bought them. They had a name. Does anyone know it or who sells them?

    They have about 2oz strapped to the bottom:

    Yes, Paul

    It is a 'Plastic Pig', made by Dinsmores. Search for them on t'interweb and have a look at the range they supply. The one you show is the 'mini' size. They are produced in a number of weights. I have just recently bought a bag of 50 'standard' 1 1/2 ones for barbelling. Good, strong honest feeders. It may be worth asking your local dealer if he has an account with Dinsmores, and maybe negotiate a price for a bag of 50? Hope this helps

    Thanks Ravey

    The last lot I ordered had a different name and weren't dinesmore, but I did see those Plastic Pigs when I was looking around.

    They look the same, but I only saw ones with 15g leads.

    They are great feeders for the river, hence I don't want to use anything else, but the Ribble is a swine for stealing your tackle!!

    As you say, if they do them with heavier leads, then that will be ideal.

    You've got to make economies where you can. The Trent can be a tackle eating monster as well! I have an 'arrangement' with my local dealer. I supply him with feeder leads and bombs from time to time (I have moulds at home), and he ordered a bag of plastic pigs when I asked him. I think they were 'cost plus VAT', working out at about 50p each. Some of the other blockend types can work out a nigh on a quid a throw. Strong, functional, and preferably cheap is all that's needed for the likes of the Trent and Ribble.
