The Method Feeder works on its best when it’s a free-running in-line Method Feeder setup.
If the reel line snaps nothing is hold to the fish and this set-up is fish friendly, it’s not fixed.
We will illustrate how to connect the quick-change beat to the feeder and hook.
❖ Thread a 30g Preston in-line Method Feeder to a touch and reliable 5lb, 7lb or 10lb line. This will be your real line or leader line.
❖ Separate a Korum Quick Change Bead and you’ll see these two clever components.
❖ Slide the Bead on the real line first and use a blood or Palomar knot to tie on the connector.
❖ The Feeder slides down the line to butt up against the Quick-Change Bead like this.
❖ Open the two halves of the bead, hook on the loop of a 100mm hook link of 4lb or 5lb line.
❖ Snap the two halves of the Bead shut. If you want to change hooks its simple job to do.
