To keep it simple I would advise attaching the feeder 'in line' All you do is attach the feeder to mainline and stop it with a drennan ledger stop.
This way you can move the distance of feeder to hook easily. You should try and fish the feeder as close to the hook as possible, ie 12 inches or whatever the metric equivalent is. But do experiment until bite come regulary.

i bait up with ground bait and put free bait in to the groud bait either pellets or chopped worm, i always bait an area up right in the middle of the cannal some thing you dont see many people doing once ive baited it up i move away from the baited area to the right (15 yards or so) i then use the line clip and a marker on the line much like carp fishing casting over distance to my right and then reeling back to the line marker and cliping again before castign to the left with the feeder full and the bait on. I leave the feeded to empty and reel the bail back about a foot (the length of the hook link) it looks strange to on looking fisherman as i have my feeder rod directly out in front of me!
some times it take a while to get the swim going (i keep castign every 10-15misn until it does) but once it gets going it never seems to stop. the accurate casting means im always fishing on a very small baited up area. ive sat tehre an watch fishermen next to me on either side blank while im pulling out roach, bream and even the odd carp on this method, ive found using a spicy groudbait with teh worm or red meggot brings out the perch. The only problem i have ver had with this method was hooking what i can only presume was a big cap as the rod pulled right round had a couple of clicks from the clutch on the reel and the line snapped(thats the main line as well not the hook length!)! gutted bear in mind it happen so quick it snapped before i even picked the rod up. I'd be really intresed to hear from and one who trys this to know how it performs on other cannals.
good luck richard

We caught a rake of rudd, roach, perch and hybrids yesterday.....all on the waggler. Not a bad thing for the float fans.
