what feeder is best for fishing chopped worm chopped caster or maggot.

Thinking either a maggot with larger holes drilled out or window feeder and throw in some compost or mole soil.
I alreadt use a dropper if i can..
Not fishing far but on the river its just a bit too far to use a dropper for

I’d use an ordinary maggot feeder. I wouldn’t make the holes any bigger as the chopped worm would come out on the way to the bottom, which would see it flow downstream away from your target area. Alternatively, use a cage feeder and bung the ends up with groundbait or soil....

Just seen this thread so excuse my post being a little late. The window feeder you suggested would be fine if you want to feed a lot of worms capped with a bit of groundbait.
For a more meagre amount of worm, just a normal cage feeder loaded with a sprinkling of hook samples making the feed up with mostly groundbait would be my choice. Fishing a river, I think I'd drop the casters and feed a little hemp.
I think the maggot feeder limits the size of chopped worm. It all depends on how you are to fish.
For future reference find where your posts fit better may be a good idea.
