Even cheaper, Ive been collecting the black plastic sleeve tubes that the Over 12m/m dia drills come in i get about 4/5 feeders for nothing out of them got all size's from about 15 m/m dia to 30 m/m dia. Also the little boxes the carbon tips come in make splendid shot,swivel &other small end tackle holder's.

hi all
if any of you want wire cage feeders the cheapest way is.

from a good pet store buy a 2ft x3ft sheet of 1/4ins square wire
mesh normaly around 3-50 you can cut it easilly with some good kitchen scissors it bends easily so you can make as many as you need of various sizes.

hi lads
i use lemonade bottles,cut the top and bottom off then measure four inchs long and a inch wide, then cut it out repeat as many times as you like, fold then staple them together then add lead down side put power gum for link, I use (green for fishing near weed beds on rivers)
brown ones for fishing sandy bottoms, and clear ones for
fishing clear water, just to Camouflage the feeder and not to spook the fish
hope this helps

CHEEP FEEDERS? HOW ABOUT THIS.....
GO TO THE LOCAL KWIK-SAVE,BUY A 2 LITRE BOTTLE OF FIZZY POP,CUT UP THE EMPTY BOTTLE INTO STRIPS OF VARIOUS SIXES ( DEPENDING ON CHOICE )
PUNCH HOLES IN THE STRIPS WITH A PAPER PUNCH ( IF REQUIRED ) AND BEND THE STRIP OVER AND STAPLE IT AT BOTH ENDS AND IN THE MIDDLE.
ADD THE REQUIRED AMOUNT OF LEAD AND THERE YOU ARE!
I ESTIMATE THAT YOU CAN GET 25 FEEDERS OUT OF ONE BOTTLE.
OH AND HERES ONE I MADE EARLIER!

TIGHT LINES,
