The review of fishing-rods for different fishing

Springtime is very well suited for feeder gear, but for fish, especially for cyprinids, a certain water temperature is needed, which often determines the activity of the spring bite. For such heat-loving fish like crucian carp and carp, the most optimal water temperature will be 15-20 degrees, but in spring the reservoirs are squeezed and the water in the bottom layer is often no warmer than 4 degrees Celsius. Fish adapts to such temperatures, but its activity, of course, will be lower than in warmer water. Therefore, in the spring, even for catching cautious carps, it is better to choose coastal areas of water bodies with shallow waters of 1-1.2 meters. Throw the feeder to a depth of 1.5-2 m and you can stay without a single bite for the whole daylight hours. This is due to the fact that the spring sun quickly heats the coastal areas with shallow depth. Moreover, the weather at this time is unpredictable and at around noon it often seems that summer has come. It can even be hot, especially in calm weather. It is clear, and the water can warm up to the optimum 15 degrees. Therefore, the fishermen who arrived at the dawn, and during the day had already rolled up the tackle, often lose their hours of active bite, when the fish have just started to take. At this time, the classic fishing dawn may not be relevant because of the low water temperature in the early morning. Continue reading

Eraser on predator

Classic donka with rubber shock absorber. What is tackle and how to catch it.

As you know, the tackle consists of a stock of the main line, undergrowth with leads and hooks, a rubber shock absorber, more often – the notorious “Hungarian” with a round cross-section or multi-layered durable rubber 10-12 meters long. On a strong current, a longer shock absorber sails heavily and often breaks. Having fixed the reel with the main line and the undergrowth on the shore, the cargo is usually delivered by boat to the critical tension of rubber (more often – by 30-50 meters) and denote it by a buoy. Then, having made hooks with mouth-watering sandwiches made from dung-worms and maggots, the line is carefully lowered into the water. You can sound poklevki bell. This is for the night. But in the afternoon, they hold a fishing line in their hands and mock the sackcloth with long braces, because this crafty fish loves the game of bait, like a perch, on occasion, it will not refuse to grab a fry. Therefore, hooks with a bright shiny finish are desirable for tooling. Bites are felt as dull tremors or a sudden weighting gear. Some fishermen, feeling a similar push, coolly spit on the sides and choose the tackle only after the third, and even the fourth bite. What, they say, idle water zatit? Continue reading
