All around us use method feeder fishing and their catches are quite large, as in respect of the fish size as in its quantity, and sometimes it happens even with novices. The time has come to choose the proper feeder for fishing, much less feeder fishing is allowed in the spawning prohibition period in most regions provided that the fishing will be performed with the use of no more than two hooks per a person. You can choose a feeder when attending our addresses of stores for goods for fishing.
To select a feeder for fishing is, actually, quite a simple issue. As in the case of any other fishing rod butt, feeder rods have several parameters:
- The length of a feeder rod is typically of from 3 to 4 meters.
Fishing feeder rod butts are created for bottom fishing and most often suppose casting at long distances. A standard length of a feeder rod of 3 meters allows casting the tackle effortlessly.
- The test of a feeder — the test of fishing feeder rod butts is usually from 40 to 200 and more grams (the most common feeders test is that with the weight of 90 grams).
The test of fishing feeder rods means the maximal weight of the feeder with the bait or lead weight used. That is, if the weight of a feeder is 90 grams, it can be used for casting feeder with the weight of 60 grams plus 30 grams of the bait. Though, it should be noticed that if a fishing feeder rod test is 90 grams, and you are casting the feeder with the weight of 100 grams plus 30 grams of the bait (totally 130 grams) with such a feeder rod, it doesn't mean that the fishing feeder rod will break down. In this case, 90 grams is an optimally evaluated weight for the loaded feeder, with which the fishing feeder rod isn't overloaded and the maximal flying characteristics for the lead weight are reached. When the test of a fishing feeder rod is overloaded by 20-30%, you need not be concerned for the fishing feeder rod to be break down.

- The formation of a fishing feeder rod, as in the case of spinning rod butts, can be slow, medium, fast or of intermediate values. The formation of a fishing feeder rod butt defines the hardness of a fishing feeder rod butt and its capability to bend under the weight.
This parameter is actual one for experienced fishermen that know what formation is exactly needed under their fishing conditions. There is no singular opinion in respect of the formation of fishing feeder rods, but it is believed that the fishing feeder rods with slow formation are better for casting not large weights, while the fishing feeder rods with fast formation are a better choice for heavy feeders. The slow formation also helps “put out” the fish's resistance during catching, while the fast formation allows picking up the large fish. For the novices we recommend choosing the medium or medium-fast formation of fishing feeder rod.
- The test of tip sections — the tip sections of a fishing feeder rod help notice the bite, they are visual indicators of biting.
Completed with a fishing feeder rod from 2 to 4 tip sections with different hardness are usually supplied. Some tip sections are marked with color only; some of them have text written in ounces. If the test of tip sections isn't marked, there exist other ways to define their hardness degree.
