Great idea Teepee, if anybody else gets an idea which they think is unique and may be commercially viable get a Patent application done. Good ideas and intellectual property should give the inventor some reward not just big companies who steal them... Ask Mr Dyson
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.
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
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...
