hi, to give the best answer could you let us know the venue you are fishing? river or lake? generally though i use a paternoster rig, where the feeder is attached to a short length of line then to the main line above a hook lenght, generally i use an 18 inch hooklengh, but go longer on fast flowing rivers like the trent, and shorter on a still water where match carp are the target

then my suggestion is to keep things simple, a free running rig, feeder on a quick change swivel on your main line, probably 8lb through to a swivel to join your hooklengh, probably 6lb, a foot long with a 16 or 14 hook for corn and meat hook baits, i most like to use a feeder blocked at one end, 3 quarter fill with maggots, then a couple of grains of corn, then plug with a dry groundbait, had some real good results with that
