Joe Carass checks out a new feeder range that is finding its way into many feeder anglers’ collections in recent months! We are well and truly moving toward an era of feeder fishing, and just like with pole fishing, niche feeder manufacturers are cropping up all over the place. Having fished Ferry Meadows regularly earlier in the year I was looking for various feeders to have in my locker. Rob Wootton had some rather nifty looking models in his feeder collection and I just had to find out more (not that Rob wanted me to know what they were!). Luckily I had a feature planned with Simon Willsmore and it just so happened that he had started to distribute the feeders throughout the UK.

Claimed by Middy to be the world’s first ever chair designed for both pole and feeder fishing, the MX-100 fills an important niche in the whole seatbox/fishing chair market. If you’re an angler for whom a seatbox is an unnecessary extravagance, you don’t want to have to settle for an unsuitable carp angler’s chair or, even worse, a garden seat. Neither option is particularly comfortable to fish from, especially if they have arms, and nor are they much suited to the demands of fishing the pole or feeder. Enter the Middy MX-100 Pole/Feeder Recliner Chair.

Pure Class!Tom Scholey inspects a new range of match rods from Free Spirit, a brand that has been synonymous with fine-quality carp fishing tackle for many years… Making a break into the super-competitive match rod market is not an easy move to make, especially when your company’s past presence in the match fishing market has been, well, non-existent! But this move is one that Free Spirit is making – and in Match Fishing’s opinion, its entry into this market will not be good news for the competition, simply because they make exceptional fishing tackle. Speaking to some of my friends from the carp fishing world (where Free Spirit carp rods are among the most highly respected available) I was told to expect quality, and when the rods arrived in the office I knew that we were in for something special. I was actually shown two ranges of rods – the CTX range (showcased here) and a range known as HiS – which were still prototypes when we saw them, but will soon hit the shelves as the company’s flagship rod range. Look for the review in a forthcoming issue.
