The Middy The Wedge In-Line Pellet Feeders come under the beady eye of Angler's Mail tackle editor Richard Howard. He's the No.1 products inspector, checking out loads of quality kit every week.
I DO like the look of the new The Wedge In-line Pellet Feeders from Middy, as they tick a lot of boxes.
Their wedge shape allows fish to get at the contents of the feeder easily, especially when you ‘plug’ dampened pellets with groundbait. They also have plenty of holes, which help to release the contents, as well as helping to reduce water drag when reeling them in.
The in-line design allows you to present an efficient self-hooking set-up, using a 3-4 in. hook length. Middy have released them in four versions: Small (20 and 30 g) and Large (30 and 40 g), offering enough weight to help you hook fish successfully.
The feeders also have a non-slip lead weight, which will grip on sloping bottoms, such as a marginal shelf, to help you catch more fish.
They are also a weight-forward design, which allows them to be cast accurately.
The Small size certainly looks like a useful option when the water is cold, whilst the Large will come into its own in the summer.
I recommend that you sandwich your hook bait between an initial loading of soaked pellets and then add some groundbait over the top to hold it in place.
Price: £2.50 each.
