Despite the fact that the first ice is the most fun and recklessly lucky period in the winter season, this can not always be attributed to roach fishing. Yes, predators are raging. They are unusually active and hasty in hunting for sleepy “white” fish, which are more susceptible to adaptation to the ice season. A roach often begins to peck confidently only in the so-called second ice, which is no longer transparent, but covered in snow. And at this time, roach fishing can be very successful, but often the weather interferes with calm fishing: wind, frost. And then the role of the winter tent is very important, which allows you to catch roach in winter even at night.
Roach on a float with ice
At one time, fishing with a fishing rod in the winter was very popular with anglers, because it did not allow parting with your favorite “fishing rod” in the winter. Now the "float" to some extent displaces fishing for unwind mormyshki. But all the same, a winter fishing rod with a float on a fishing line was and remains one of the most attractive tackle in catching roaches. In addition, there is no alternative to the float in severe frosts, since the fishing line of ordinary tackle quickly seizes in the hole with ice.
So, a fishing rod with a pop-up float. Why is it needed, and besides, with a float that does not sink when biting, but, on the contrary, floats under the ice "> winter bait for cold water with the addition of syrups and attractants, for example, " Hemp in fish. "
Now about winter float equipment in more detail
As a fishing rod, filly fishing rods are usually used, which are made from pressed foam and placed on the legs at the hole. Instead of a reel for winding equipment, a reel is used, which also serves as the handle of the fishing rod. Such a fishing rod allows you to quickly wind up and fold equipment with a float, which is difficult to do using a reel.
The main difference between a winter fishing rod and a summer fishing rod is the subtlety of the fishing line, the small size of the hook and the float. The average carrying capacity of a winter float is 2.3 g. The main fishing line of a fishing rod is usually 0.12 mm in diameter, and the leash thickness is 0.08-0.1 mm. Hooks are used in size No. 16-18 of the international numbering. All of these parameters are suitable for medium and medium-sized roach fishing. But the fishing rod should always be in stock, more powerful, because sometimes powerful red-eyed fishes begin to peck, tearing a spider line with a diameter of 0.08 mm, like a rotten thread.
When fishing on the course, the tackle has a slightly different design. If you leave everything as it is, then the snap will drag along. If you put heavier sinkers and, accordingly, a large float, then the tackle will be bulky and rough. Therefore, in this case it is more logical to use a retractable leash. The tackle is also simple and consists of a sinker such as "olive" or "pear", the main fishing line and a leash with a hook. The float is used as in the summer. It can be adjusted so that it is on the surface or below the surface of the water. In this case, the bite will be defined as a jerk of the float to the side with going deeper.
The snap diagram is as follows.
Above the sinker, at a distance of about 10 cm, a leash of 25 centimeters or more in length is attached. With weak biting, the leash becomes longer. The thickness of the entire equipment with a retractable leash can be slightly proportionally greater, since during the course the requirements for gear are different.
For fishing with a fishing rod, the role of a fishing box is very important, convenient, light and roomy, since sometimes you have to sit on ice all day.
