Looking for advice on which rigs, bait, hook lengths to use with an open end feeder in the winter for roach skimmers and bream. Any help would be much appreciated thanks.

Hello mate there is two ways I use an open ended feeder. The length of hooklink depends the lake bed longer ones for silt and short weed. Shorter for clean hard bottoms one way is to have your hooklink attached to the mainline via a micro swivel and the feeder free running on the mainline above the swivel use a buffer bead next to the swivel. This method is not a self hooking way unless you add weights to the outside of your feeders. An other way is to use a mini lead clip instead of using a lead, clip on a feeder then just nick on the tail rubber hope these help.

The fishing was great but the catching was bad
