Tony King Fools Big Chub Using A Vari-Weight Feeder

East Sussex based all-rounder Tony King has recently been on the banks of the River Avon in hope of fooling a big chub or two!


Tony managed to land 3 perch and couple of chub, with the best chub pictured above at 6lb 6oz.

His tactics were to keep a steady flow of maggots going into the swim throughout the day using a Medium Vari-Weight Feeder. He used 6lb Supplex mainline and a 3lb hooklink, to which he tied a size 18 Super Specialist hook.

Although they are excel­lent on still­wa­ters, Drennan Vari-Weight Feeders are designed primarily for the river angler who needs to make small adjust­ments to the weight loading in order to get the feeder fishing perfectly.

There are four Vari-Weight Feeders in the family, each with its own range of nine dif­ferent weight com­bin­a­tions and all sup­plied in a pack of two feeders (one green and one brown).
