Description and diagram of a paternoster feeder rig

This rig was kindly submitted by Anglers’ Net forum member Lutra.


Probably the most sensitive of all feeder rigs as it requires no movement of the feeder or line to slide through a swivel for a fish to register a bite. However on its down side it’s not very good in running water unless fished directly downstream from the rod tip and is not a very safe rig as it offers the potential to tether fish if your main line snaps.

A big favourite with bream anglers, but good for any shy biting fish on snag free pegs that don’t fight too hard and great when teamed up with a swing tip on still waters.
