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).
