Initially, the only reliable way to perform long-range casting when fishing on a fishing rod was such that the equipment was gradually carried away by the flow to the desired distance. But technical thought did not stand still, and with the advent of inertialess coils, using artificial materials for the manufacture of rods, the true birth of gear for long casting occurred. At present, long casting is understood as a fishing method in which the length of the line from the tip of the rod to the float is several times the length of the rod itself.
As in the spinning rod, the rod for long casting should be equipped with through-rings and inertialess reel. It is desirable that its length be in the range of 3.7 – 4 m with 12 to 16 access rings with high legs. Continue reading
The need to cast heavy (80-100 grams) weighed 100 meters or more requires the use of powerful, very rigid semi-parabolic fishing rods. The usual length of a carp fishing rod is 3.5 meters, although some anglers prefer 4.5 meters to increase casting distance. A long but rather rigid rod allows you to send equipment far away without forcing the cast, which means that there is no risk of breaking the fishing line or breaking the fishing rod itself. You can easily recognize carp fishing rods in the display case of a fishing store by the short-handle reel holder extended far ahead. The other handle is located near the butt of the rod. This placement of the handles is dictated by the casting feature: the main effort is on the butt, and the right hand near the reel is just the point around which the rod rotates during casting. Recently, on the shelves of our stores you can find special carp fishing rods from Silstar, D.A.M and others. Continue reading
In this article we will talk about how to properly dry fish at home.
If you are a fishing enthusiast, but your catch no longer fits in the freezer, and your wife threatens to kick out of the house for “another batch of this slippery muck”, then it’s time to think about other ways to store your fishing trophies.
One of such methods is drying. This is not a difficult thing, if you get used to it, but a dried fish, but with a beer … mmm … Yummy, in a word.
So, how to dry fish at home? Firstly, it is worthwhile to figure out the size of the fish. Continue reading
Among the many metal spinners there are narrowly targeted models, the specialization of which is determined by the specific fishing conditions. Thus, light oscillators made from thin metal are used when narrowing in shallow water or in grass.
All products are classified into categories based on their characteristics. Oscillators differ in shape and size, weight and material, color. It is worth noting that it is necessary to choose a spinner looking back at the species composition of a particular reservoir. If the basis of the food base of the spotted beauty is bleak, roach or rudd, then narrow-body models are much more likely to bite. In water areas where crucian carp, bream and bream predominate – anglers use items with a wide body. Continue reading
In autumn, the inhabitants of the ichthyofauna become more active, since a long period of freezing awaits them. Pike is considered especially greedy in terms of food. In the period from September to December, it is caught on larger baits: wobblers, silicone, turntables and, of course, oscillators.
Fishing spot is half the success
Rivers, lakes and reservoirs are a blank canvas for artists to experiment with spinning rods. Each fisherman has in his arsenal his own animations, tested over the years of bait, as well as the knowledge gained over the years. Continue reading
