ok some advice i heard the other day regarding copyrite and pattents is this

if you have a idea for something and you are sure it has not been done before the best thing to do

is to take photos of your idea and write a description of your product/idea and the simply put them in a envelope and post them to yourself this will then give you a date posted reciept which can not be refuted under law providing you dont open the envelope then if you decide to take your idea to a company and they say no thank you and decide to go with your idea for their own profit you will have an official document to refute their right to the idea as they would have stole it from you.

Some great ideas there. I'll show you my version someday.
Just goes to show that with a bit of thought you dont need to spend loads of hard earned dosh in the tackle shop.

I would just like to say thank you for this idea. I made a couple last week and since I have used them my catches have improved a great deal which i can only put down to better feeding through these pots.

I have made about a dozen of these so far mainly smaller ones for the winter, but i have made 1 or 2 for fishing with paste in the summer. Going to try the smaller ones on saturday and see what there like. Thanks to teepee for his great idea and sharing it with us also[;)][:D]

I like the idea of making good cheap pole cups but unfortunately i dont have a pole[:I] yet[:D] .

but i am off to a commercial fishery tomorrow and wondered if i could use my 15ft waggler rod as a sort of pole and use one of theese pots to feed accurate[8D]?

no you could not mate you would get a load of tangles and would slide around when playing fish

To echo all the other guys on this post, such a simple yet incredibly effective design!

I've been using the tops of plastic drink bottles with grooves cut in and secured with the bottle cap for an age but this simple design has changed the way I "toss" forever!

Thanks man!

I was staring at the vodka and whiskey tops in the corner of my room thinking they would make a great feed pot [;)] but the bottles are too full for me to take them off right now [:(] Looks like some heavy shot drinking for the weekend.

Anyway i just whipped a couple of them up with (plastic cups) for paste/bread punch fishing, great idea thanks...

Goodness knows how many years later.. And I still haven't used a different pole pot since discovering this!
