How about this for a brand new design of flat Method in-line feeder?
Nisa Porkys have upright pegs to mould the groundbait around, rather than the traditional cross rib design. The thinking is that a baited hook is far less likely to snag on the upright posts than it is on cross ribs.
These are inline feeders and so conform to most fishery rules and are fish friendly. They also incorporate a simple but clever Shock Link system within the feeder to counter hook pulls.
The Shock Links, although extremely hard wearing are available separately as spares. The innovative peg system allows easy loading in the palm of the hand, of groundbait, damp pellets etc and holds the bait securely for even very long casts.
Once in the water these baits can loosen easily to form an attractive pile over the feeder with the hookbait right on top for instant detection. Because of the peg system the hook is very unlikely to snag within the feeder and if a fish is hooked quickly, as is often the case, any bait that has not been eaten simply drops off and is not dispersed everywhere on the retrieve.
The weight loadings of 28gms & 36gms have been determined after much trial and error to give the best casting qualities and stability through the air, even when wind conditions are adverse and also stability in the water, meaning you can tighten up without moving the feeder even on sloping bottoms. THIS IS A VERY IMPORTANT DETAIL.
Porkys are supplied with special stretchy Shock Links that fit inside the in-line feeder, to semi-fix it. PORKYS are sold in packs of two with full instructions on how to rig and load with bait.
