There are so many different feeders out on the market that you have more choices available to you now than you ever have.
However, we are a huge fan of homemade fishing tackle too. Paul Adams aka 'The Handmade Fisherman' produces some fantastic videos on his youtube channel and we particularly liked the homemade milk bottle feeder.
Before anybody says it yes it would probably be easier to buy one but, it is fantastic to look at the ingenious ways that people used to make their own fishing tackle before we became spoilt with the huge range available to us these days.
There is something satisfying about catching a fish on something you have made yourself whether it is a bait, a float or even a milk bottle top feeder. These sorts of videos take us back to the pioneering days of fishing before we had the huge range of tackle and bait choices that we have today.
