Description: Ledgering is the technique of placing the bait on the bottom with no float and the bite is indicted using a number of methods. The weight is provided with a 'bomb' or a 'feeder'.
The decision to user a feeder depends on the fishes feeding habits and how far away they are. There is no point in using the feeder if the fish are feeding on the surface or if the fish are looking for a moving bait
With teh correct tackle you should be able t cast a feeder 40 or 50 mt easily.
Prebait.com tip: A good trick is plug the feeder with groundbait at either end with hemp and casters in the middle.
A running line feeder rig is most commonly used with the feeder threaded on the main line which is connected directly to the hook length. You can use a small shot to stop the feeder resting on the hook.
Bite indication is most commonly done using a very light sensitive tip on the tip of the rod. These are called quiver tips and when the fish takes the bait the tip will register the bite. An adapted version of this is the 'swing tip' where the quiver tip hanging from the end of the rod attached by flexible silicon tubing. This is possibly the most sensitive of all the bite indicators.
