Nostalgia for a spring trip
In anticipation of spring, like a precious Museum piece the fishermen pull out their trusty fishing rods. Rich fishing experience, compared to feeder fishing float rod in early spring is more efficient and yields only when fishing for big bream. Main spring hopes on a more realistic bite IDE, roach, white bream, which is always good to be caught on float tackle. How in the spring you can keep check favorite places on the presence of these biting?
And while in the pan to cook pea porridge, you can conduct a «float inspection» is to check the equipment. Critical review expose almost everything. Weakened from the line ruthlessly discarded, because, after lying in the closet, all winter long, wound on a reel they are great to lose strength and may fail on fishing.
Floats check for the presence of cracks, and vertucci rust. Even at home, knit a sufficient number of spare leashes fishing a pity to lose time on it, and haste is not quite reliable snap hook. And since fishing spring fish mostly goes for the coquina, on a thin fishing line leashes quickly formed burrs. And if such a leash is not replaced on time, it could break at the simplest situation.
After checking the gear remains steamed millet. The presence in the bait of millet, when fishing on the course is considered necessary. It weights the mixture and also removes excess moisture from cooked peas, making bait is plastic and sticky enough. In addition, little millet balls readily eaten by all fish. Wheat should preferably be cooked separately from the peas – with separate cooking porridge turns out more fragrant. Of course, such operation is time-consuming, but the rush is harmful. After all, bait is the secret weapon of poplavochnye, the tool is very thin, and any haste can ruin future fishing.
Already on the river, the fishermen check the depth. This, trifling at first glance, the operation is actually very useful. And not because you need to find the edge, not at all – in the spring of active fish most often rests on the sandy spits. Often in such places are full of limestone. And catching there is always followed by a thin fishing line contact of the leash with the sharp edges of the shells – several transactions like this, and leash fails. So the descent of the lure make so that the bottom was only the hook. And this can be achieved only if very carefully to measure the depth. Therefore it is better to spend ten minutes to install a working downhill than to pull the fish and tie hooks. Of course, not do without it, but soundings of the depth reduces the risk of breakage of gear several times.
After measuring the depth of the mould from five fairly large bait balls, and throw into the water a little above the place where they will do the wiring. Bullets need to go as tight as possible, so throwing should carefully and slowly. Fasten the hook a couple of maggots, make your first cast. Float quietly falls on the water and in the undertow, slowly floats past lying on the bottom of the balls of bait. Antenna slightly winces when the hook with the bait touches the bottom. If no bites, the fleeting insights regarding the correctness of the choice of location, try not to rush.
In the spring, the water is still cold, and the smell of bait it is spreading slowly. So twenty minutes should kick in vain snap past the bait and wait patiently. All the attention is concentrated on the floats. The bite is happening, as always, unexpectedly, abruptly float disappears under water often in the middle of the transaction. Immediately make the trip, and if it is successful, then at the other end of the line is difficult to zavolochitsy first trophy.
