|The bigger Korda method feeders have been popular amongst specimen carp anglers for some years now. More recently, match and pleasure anglers have been using smaller and lighter method feeders for all manner of species like tench and even bream on waters like Clattercote and Drayton reservoirs and many smaller commercial lakes. Korda have been hitherto missing out on this business, but not any longer.
Earlier this year they launched their new mini method feeders, designed almost identical to their bigger brothers. The beauty of the design of both is that the weight is biased to one side of the three bladed feeder, when it hits the water it always falls with the weighted side down. Therefore, by placing your hookbait in the topside of the moulded groundbait you KNOW it’s going to be available to the fish and not buried underneath as it might be with other feeders.
Of course, these new smaller feeders can be just as useful in fishing for big carp especially in winter when not as much groundbait would be required. You can use them with anti-tangle rig tubing, but as the hook and bait is buried in the ball of feed I can’t see the point (is that a pun?). However, you could also use lead core or similar leader to ensure the line is pinned to the bottom.
