Hi, I am just new here and have returned to coarse fishing after a lengthy absence. I have had a couple of attempts at the method feeder and it is not going too well. I have been fishing the margins and on the first attempt with a tight line to the quivertip the rod would sweep right around quite savagely but failed to hook up. This happened on most casts but I only managed to catch 3 Bream of around a pound. I put this down to the fish swimming into the line and spooking so on the second attempt I fished with the line slack in the hope that it would lie on the bottom out of the way. This time I was watching the line where it entered the water and it kept pulling out and dropping back, sometimes a yard or more and sometimes registered on the rod as well. The fact that the line always dropped back led me to believe that the feeder hadn't moved otherwise the line wouldn't be able to drop back. None hooked up. I am using a 4in hooklength and Kamasan or Guru hooks in size 10 or 12 and either a 6mm hard pellet with a band or a hair rigged wafter with a quickstop. I also tried a couple of 6mm soft Halibut pellets direct onto the hook to try to eliminate the hair . The feeder was 20 grams and I upped that to 30 grams to try to increase the bolt effect. Looking at underwater footage on youtube the fish were emptying the feeder but hardly moving it, certainly not enough to pull the rod around violently. Does anyone have any suggestions as to any thing I can do differently.
