Catching on stream to the float: basic rules for choosing a float
In the art of fishing there are manynuances, and sometimes even experienced fishermen with some of them are not familiar. For example, fishing on the current on the float dictates its own rules, and most important of them concerns the choice of the float.
Choose the "right" float
Whether there will be fishing on the flow efficient,depends not only on the fishing rod, hook and bait, but also on the float. The optimal forms of floats in this case are a drop or a sphere. Teardrop-shaped and spherical floats perfectly behave in fast flowing conditions: they do not sink to the side, and do not dive under the water when a fisher tries to hold a snap in one place. In addition, floats for fishing on the current should have a long keel. In the turbulent water flow, floats with elongated keels are always more stable. The most successful option is the carbon fiber keel. In addition to high elasticity, carbon fiber keels have practically zero buoyancy, which provides additional stability to the float. As for the metal keels, theysomewhat heavy, and their weight contributes to an additional swing of the float.
Antenna is an important element of the float
Catching on the current to the float requires attention andto one more important element - the antenna. The float for the current must have a thick antenna: firstly, it will be clearly visible at a great distance, and secondly, it will take on the functions of an additional float. With its own buoyancy, a thick antenna will be effectiveto dive the float in casethe hook will be hooked at the bottom. Floats with thin antennas react too sensitively in such cases when fishing in wiring. Doing a cut in the case of each floating float is quite problematic - after a while this process will start to irritate, and fishing will turn into a total torment. Catching on the current to the float requires serious preparation, so it is better to have in your arsenal floats with different diameters of antennas. For example, for night fishing, antennas are suitable, whose diameter corresponds to the diameter of the catalytic fireflies. On small rivers it is best to use floats with a thick, short antenna, because a shallow depth, clear water and a bright bottom make the inhabitants of such rivers treat with great distrust any object that comes across their eyes. Especially to large dark objects floating on top.
Catching from a boat on the current
When catching a boat, first of all, it is necessarydetermine the depth. Because on the current, fishing is used for wiring, it is advisable to find a place with a more or less even bottom, the area of which would be 10-20 meters. In places with uneven bottom fish is not suitable for bait. Fishing with a telescopic fishing rod from the boat follows the same principles as from the shore, but the rigging should be longer - this will allow the fish to be brought closer to the boat, and the rod will not fall into the "dead zone". In the rest, catching on the current on the float from the boat is no different, and when choosing floats, you should follow the same rules as for catching from the shore.
