The first step in setting up a feeder fishing rod is to choose the right one. You want to make sure that you choose a rod that is suitable for your type of fishing. Factors such as the size of your Target fish, water conditions, and type of bait should all be taken into consideration when selecting your rod.

Attaching the Reel

Once you have chosen your rod, it’s time to attach your reel. Start by sliding the reel onto the reel seat and securing it with two screws. Make sure that the reel is firmly attached before continuing.

Stringing the Line

Next, string the line through the guides on your rod.

Start at the tip of your rod and work your way back towards the handle. Make sure that each guide has enough line going through it so that it will not snag when you cast. Once you have passed through all of the guides, tie off your line at both ends.

Adding Bait

Now it’s time to add bait to your line. Depending on what type of bait you are using, there are different techniques for attaching it to your line. If you are using live or artificial bait, make sure that you securely attach it so that it does not slip off during casting or retrieving.


Setting up a feeder fishing rod can seem daunting at first but with some practice and patience you will be able to do so quickly and easily. Choosing the right rod, attaching a reel, stringing line through guides and adding bait are all parts of setting up a feeder fishing rod correctly for maximum success in catching fish with a feed bait!
