The go-to colour* for commercials seems to be Red, yet natural stillwaters White, then you've got the rivers and canals where bronze, multi, and even pinkies and squats are the chosen ones, but is it just a confidence thing from an angler's perspective, or do fish really react differently to different colour maggots?

Any ideas about the best feeder design for holding bottom on rivers. I am thinking of an alternative to more weight and use the current to hold bottom. I am thinking open end feeder is probably the best as the water can flow through it. However, any opinion on a tear drop design - like an aerofoil?
Its prob pointless as i think line drag may be an issue more than feeder weight but its cold and wintery and i am bored!
Been fishing a margin pole this year, and learning the ropes as it were. Looking forwards now, I’m thinking the benefits offered by a longer pole, and
obviously something a little better quality might be worth investigating.
Dont need a 16m one, and perhaps don’t even need. 14.5 one either, so 13m probably would be great for me. However, reading the info from
the guys on this site, it is often said you get what you pay for in terms of quality.
Question is this then: if I bought the 14.5m, but used it mostly around 13m, would there be a noticeable difference between the two poles, as obviously the 14.5 would be a more costly purchase. Thinking Superium pole range perhaps. Then again I would have that little extra length if the need ever arose.
Would there be much in it, or not worth the extra outlay?
