The Middy Cage-Fighter Carp 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.

Description: groundbait feeders for bagging commercial fishery carp.

Specifications: Small (20 g), Medium (30 g) and Large (40 g) sizes; polymer construction; flatbed design; rigid stem with a fitted swivel.

My verdict: on fisheries that don’t allow Method feeder fishing, a slightly different presentation can be just as productive.

Try filling these feeders with a Method groundbait mixed with a few micro pellets, and then set them up so that they slide freely on your main line.

A 12 in. hook length and a hair-rigged bait of punched meat, corn or a hooker pellet can be a great way to tempt any carp that are in your swim.

They have enough weight to allow you to tighten the line without dislodging them on a sloping bottom, and they are heavy enough to create a self-hooking bolt rig.

Price: £1.99.
