I fancy having a go targeting perch on the middle Severn at Bridgnorth. My barbel rods will be a bit over-gunned. I have a 10ft feeder rod that hopefully will do the job.
I don't fancy live baiting, so I was thinking lob worm? I hear people also have a good success with prawn?
Could anyone lay out a basic feeder/ledger rig, hook length, type of feeder, hook size etc
Might seem really obvious to some, but what is the best way to hook or hair rig a worm?
And finally, what sort of pegs/swims should I be looking for that may contain a perch or two?
If anyone has any advice to give, then that would be great.
Thanks Graham, really helpful.Will.
Suprised you haven't had any replies
I nearly always livebait on the rivers as it tends to sort out the better fish.
If I was forced to fish differently I would probably look at using a
Maggot feeder filled with red maggots and chopped worm.
Size 8 hook with lobworm on the hook. Larger bait like that to try and avoid the silver fish hookups.
I would hook one in the head and add a broken half on top of it.
Hook length 18 inches.
Look for slacks on the inside. Casting to the edge of the faster water.
Cast every 10 mins and give every swim an hour if you happy to not remain static.
Enjoy the eels!!!
Can only speak from personal experience and the one I have is the 13ft compact plus.Just had a look on Drennan site and plenty of Acolyte models to go at. Is there a particular one that you use Paul ?
