Only if they are not banned like they are on our waters.
Why on earth are ICS inline feeders banned. I would have thought they would be some of the few that were allowed, completely free running and fish safe.

It's the elasticated ones that are banned round here mate.

Oh I see. Yes, I don’t use elasticated feeders.
Here round this little village are 4 fisheries and all have the same rule on feeders and leads...
All feeders/leads must be inline and free running. Carp leads must also be inline free running with nothing above the feeder/or lead. Paternoster, heli rigs and lead clips are banned. No elasticated feeders.

Good fish safe rules if you ask me. People should be a lot more aware of the fish tethering risk of certain setups.

Thirteen quivertip rods and one swingtip rod

Twelve are rigged and ready to go - the other two would be too but I ran out of suitable reels :p
Three are 12' 'barbel' rods (two Shakespeare and a Wychwood - 1.5-2lb TC ), six shorter rods (10'6" and under) for commercial fisheries and short chucks on natural waters and five 'proper' feeder rods for bigger chucks and bigger waters.

All fulfill a certain purpose, although to be honest I could probably sell half of them and not really notice they'd gone.
I certainly don't envisage buying anything new this year, although I'll probably spot something at a car-boot sale or second-hand stall.

5 x Garbolino 9ft, 1 x 9ft Maver Reactorlite, 1 x Okuma 9ft and 1 x Garbolino 11ft. 8 in total.

I could sell the Okuma though it’s not worth anything. The others I wouldn’t part with.

Are bomb rods, avons, carp rods, beach rods and boat rods included?

Or does it have to say feeder on the graphics? 😉

I have two Tricast feeder rods a power feeder and a power wand ,
I have two Daiwa feeder rods Ninjas an NJF10Q and a TDF10

one Sonic 10 ft feeder rod a Shakespeare Mustang bomb rod,.

And a Preston Parobolic feeder system which makes up three rods.

Question I'm now asking myself is why do I need so man y feeder rods

when I could possibly just need the Preston rods to do it all.

When I go fishing theses day I just grab nearest ,I've never sat fishing thinking I should have bought a different rod ,
so Why did I buy so many to do same job.
Stikflote, mate, you bought them because a/ they were shinny. b/ We cannot fuel our fishing kit addiction, without buying something before we leave the tackle shop.
