Martin Bowler’s Top Tips #13 – Try The Pellet Feeder

The Pellet Feeder is seen purely as a match fishing tool, but it also offers a great alternative method for fishing pellets on a river for barbel, chub and even big roach.

A Drennan Pellet Feeder filled with mixed halibut pellet and plugged with a sticky groundbait.

The Pellet Feeder allows me to fill the majority of the feeder with loose pellets of all sizes and then simply plugging the end with either groundbait or even paste. Not only does it allow you to tuck in your hookbait allowing you to easily cast long hooklinks. Another plus is that it also saves on the use of PVA mesh as well as giving the fish a new puzzle to figure out.
