Default

I am used to losing my share of tackle.
If you loose the hooklink then clearly it is the hook that has snagged not feeder.So perhaps shorten hooklink or somehow stop it wafting/moving, bait change...
Above info all works for sure but best solution is make your own feeders.
Literally can be done for nothing if you can get a bit of old lead sheet.

Thanks , Mark .

For me , its nearly always the feeder that gets snagged . Ive started to use the snag clips in my rig , as suggested earlier in the thread - and I have to say , they work very well . I`m still losing a few feeders , but nearly always get my hook back !

By the way , Mark , what do you use for the feeder bodies - I do have some bits of lead sheet lying around my garrage - so might have a try at making some !
