Finding the right feeder reels to match different length quivertip rods is a critical choice in coarse angling. One minute you can target silverfish with a sensitive indicator and short rod, the next switching to a longer model with a stiffer action and quivertip, playing weighty carp.
Selecting the perfect feeder reel helps to achieve a balanced outfit, improving casting accuracy over different distances and when attempting to catch other species. Feeder fishing has changed a lot, with an in-line method, pellet and hybrid designs very popular, aimed at catching mega hauls of carp and other big fish like bream. Matrix, Daiwa, Preston and Shimano produce some of the best method feeder reels, along with versatile quivertip rods to complement them.
