The Feeder Bomb is a cross between a Method feeder and a lead. It’s teardrop shaped and hollow, and as you can see has a cage folding over one side, while it’s flat on the other.
Made from virtually indestructible metal alloy in black or bronze, they are excellent when fishing paste on rivers to create a scent trail for barbel and chub. In the smaller sizes bream anglers can fish it as a bomb when they don’t want to feed the swim, or wrap some groundbait into the hollow and around the cage and feed a little bread each cast.
In the smaller sizes they similar in size to a standard 1oz lead and therefore aren’t going to make as much disturbance as a feeder, but do give you that option of packing in just a little feed to keep your swim ticking over. On hard day just using the 1/4oz or 1/8oz versions allows you to feed just enough for one bite at a time.
Another use is when roving for chub on clear rivers with breadflake pushing breadpunch (which can be very buoyant) into the Feeder Bomb to get it down to the bottom where you’re fishing.
