Proper installation of a floating boil

How to mount a floating boilie and remove the “idle” bites? Basic rules to improve the performance of bites.

Novice anglers often encounter the problem of “blank” bites when fishing on boilies. The signaling device shyly peeps, the fishing line stretches slightly, but the long-awaited steam engine is still gone. This situation suggests that there is fish at the feeding point, she is interested in the nozzle, but refuses to bite. Numerous underwater shots, which can be seen on the Internet, often capture how a carp takes a boilies with a hook and spits it out without detecting it. At this time, the fisherman hears that the bite signaling device has tripped and immediately subsided. The reason for this phenomenon is the improper installation of the boil. It would seem that it could be simpler: I drilled a boil, did it with an awl, put a stopper and catch it. But not so simple. The smallest details are important in carp fishing.

Fishing at the pond in summer

What kind of fish and what gear do fishermen catch on village ponds.

Fishermen at the pond in summer

Of course, first of all, on a village pond in the summer, there is a real expanse for fishing anglers who will not exchange their fishing rod with classic equipment for anything, but it was used a couple of centuries ago. And even though here on this pond, literally thirty meters, if you walk along the shore, they catch carps five, seven kilograms, sometimes harder, but for lovers of fly fishing rods, carp are more expensive than the largest carps caught on heavy carp rods. And, strangely enough, for some reason, the largest crucian carp come closer to the coastline. Fishermen with a six-meter fly fishing rod sometimes have worse results for large crucian carp than fishermen with a five-meter fishing rod. But the situation is different with carps.

Closer to the fall, the conditions of any fishing change

From a boat or shore? Aksakovskaya bream fishing. From the boat to the donka.

Closer to the fall, the conditions of any fishing are changing. Especially these changes are noticeable on small rivers. A warm summer dawn, it happened, you will anchor along the edge of the coastal strip of grass and, you can say, a fishing place has been found. Thickets of egg-capsule and hornwort are usual companions of shallow water on a slope into a pit. It is understandable: aground, the water warms up better and is saturated with sunlight. And if the place is located right next to the river bed, then the water here usually goes around and this stretch is most often quite deep and rich in fish.

From a boat or shore?
Autumn fishing from a boat can be more productive than from the shore, since it is easier to find exits to the pit and grooves-hollows from the boat among flat depths. Here, most often the fish keeps and makes its morning and evening exercises for feeding.
