The line requirements are also different. For a river with its strong course, braided fishing line that does not have elasticity and cuts water well is best suited. In addition, it allows you to better determine the bite. Monofilament fishing line, stretching along the stream in an arc, just may not show touch and even jerking fish, especially with long casting. On the ponds, you can put both monophilic fishing line and braid.
The shape of the feeder is also important when fishing on the stream. Usually, rectangular or triangular-shaped feeding troughs are used here, so that their discharge along the bottom in a strong current is less. Before fishing with a filled feeder, a test cast with an empty feeder should be done to determine its ability to stay on the bottom without feeding. Otherwise, after it is washed, it will be thrown down by the force of the current. To make the feeders heavier, you can put an additional load inside the feeder or fix a heavy plate on the bottom. At ponds, feeding troughs of the type method or flat were widely used. The design of the Method, Flat feeders allows for long-distance accurate casting due to compactness and weight, while the bait is laid taking into account the still water – freely, like on a spoon for thick-breasted gourmet crucians. In addition, these feeders do not fall into soft sludge. Continue reading
Like all donkeys, even the simplest ones, the feeder can be called one of the most common and universal gears. Fishermen with a feeder may be silver bleak, although it is considered a surface fish, as well as a steep-sided and goldfish. But, of course, the main goal of any angler is a heavy bream or a powerful and rapid ide. It is the feeder that is most suitable for catching these beautiful and desirable fish. Especially if fishing comes from the shore. In this English bottom fishing rod, such accessories as a feeder and leashes directly connected to it are successfully combined. For quite a long time, the Volga pits near the fairway were my favorite and constant places of fishing. At the right high and mountain coast of the Volga, only one tackle could cope with a strong current – the “ring”. It also guesses the features of the feeder. And a lighter Volga tackle with a feeder suspended on a fishing line, which was also used on the Volga, but near the left bank with shallow coastal depths, already resembles a feeder, only an onboard one.
To some extent, the feeder replaces fishing from a boat, and in some cases it is he who is more catchy than an onboard donka with a feeder suspended on a fishing line. This is especially true for small rivers with shallow depths. Not so long ago, on the Bolshaya Kokshaga River, I came across a situation where, it would seem, the airborne donka should be ahead of the feeder and coastal donks in terms of performance. We became attached to a fallen spruce just above a rather deep hole where a large fish was kept. Continue reading
