The Guru Pellet Feeder is an innovative design that protects the softened pellet loaded into the feeder during the cast and on impact with the water but allows the loose pellet and hookbait to come free of the feeder once on the lakebed. Here is a step by step guide of how to load the feeder.
Take some standard off the shelf pellets, such as, Trout or Halibut pellets and cover them in boiling water for a couple of minutes before draining the water off.
Check the pellet is sufficiently softened, if not repeat the process with boiling water until they are the right consistency.
For the purpose of this demonstration I only prepared enough pellet for one feeder. If you are planning a day session I would suggest you prepare as much as you think you may need.
Attach the feeder to your mainline, followed by a rig and your choosen bait. I would suggest something that matches the pellet in the feeder.
Partly fill the feeder with the scaulded pellet.
Then place the hookbait in the feeder like so.
Now top up the feeder and compress slightly. Make sure not to compress the pellets too much though, as you want them to loosen and release the hookbait once on the lake bed.
Your feeder is now loaded and ready to cast out.
The feeder will land on the lakebed with the pellet still intact.
But after a minute or so and a gentle pull back of the feeder from the rod it will release the pellet and your hookbait.
This type of presentation is perfect for any waters where weed is present or you are fishing in a greater depth than normal. Although it will work perfectly on all waters.
Give it a go.
