HOOKS & PRE TIED RIGS
Milan Piperkovic (Piper) Trabucco Feeder Team Serbia
In spite of being oriented to same fish species of some other fishing techniques, the feeder fishing has some peculiarities that make necessary specific hooks. First of all, the existence of a match circuit has increased the awareness of hookbait balance importance, in which the weight of the hook matters greatly. The extensive use of multi-fiber lines, without any elasticity, puts the hook under extreme stress, despite the use of shock leader surely cushions it. Finally, the Method Feeder involves short hooklinks and causes strong reactions by the fish, because the bait presentation is so good that the takes are quite confident: a scenario in which the hook must bear enormous traction, concentrated in a short time span. That’s why we developed this special hook’s range, finished in Matt Black, mostly eyed and featuring an accurate balance between strength of the structure and efficiency of the point.
THE FIVE MERITS OF TRABUCCO FEEDER HOOKS • The reliability, a primary value, considering the size and strength of target fish • The eye, as with knotless knot a new world of opportunities is available to everybody • The Matt Black finish, which doesn’t cast any glare in the water, avoiding to scare fish • The Barbless solutions, modern, not fashionable but simply vital for the serious angler • The wire diameter indication, which enables to compare and evaluate hook’s strength

To the English match anglers, the term “silver fish” tells clearly which is the vocation of this hook, the only one within Trabucco Feeder range to have the spade end and to propose the size 18. Chub, roach, crucian carp and bream are its main targets, although its structure does not fear anything in case of striking into any bonus fish. Perfect with maggots and casters, it is also comfortable with earthworms and sweetcorn, lending itself to all the most creative cocktails of these natural baits. Its needle point, rather long, is slightly tilted inwards to provide an exceptional holding power.
It has a lot of power to spare, this classic feeder hook, designed to arrange nice presentations of pellets and mini boilies when fishing for carp, barbel and clarius. The only concession to the kindness is given by barb size, very small, although this detail is motivated by the need to enhance the self-hooking property, a peculiar trait of the method feeder technique. The slightly out-turned eye favors the Knotless Knot hair rig tying, the one-way contamination from carp fishing in the modern feeder area.

KNOTLESS KNOT It’s the most brilliant solution for tying eyed hooks, because it solves two problems at once: to create the hair rig for bait application and maintain the highest possible knot strength. In fact, it is not a real knot, and that’s why it has been so called: the coils that form it have no chance to harm each other under traction. The Knotless Knot can be used with any type of hooklink material: nylon, fluorocarbon, braided line, and all hook patterns. Before you implement the steps outlined here, you should form a small loop at the end of the hooklink, which will be useful to lock the bait.
