Feeder fishing has to be one of the most popular styles of fishing in the UK at the moment. It's simple, accessible to all and devastatingly effective. But you need to be on the right waters for the tactic. Here then are 10 lakes where you will not only catch on the feeder, you'll really bag up!

High Heyes Fishery, Chorley, Lancashire

There are great mixed bags to be had on the tip here, with tench, bream and carp all on offer in good numbers. Feed a mixture of pellets and groundbait.

You can catch big carp on the feeder at Hallcroft

Manor Farm Leisure, Evesham, Worcestershire

Great feeder sport on all the pools across this excellent fishery, but Island Pool is hard to beat. As its name suggests, there’s an island to chuck to, for carp, tench, and skimmers.

Head Fen Lakes, Ely, Cambridgeshire

Trev’s Lake is home to clonking carp, plus big tench and bream. Worms are a good option for a mixed net, and are worth trying alongside a maggot or groundbait feeder.
