In our country, eleven time zones and fishing conditions can be very different. Somewhere else the ice is monolithic and thick, and somewhere already with the stream, whirlpools swirl, spinning. And often it is very difficult to approach the clean root bank on such fishing, as there is a lot of water in the lowlands. It seems that here, the shore, turns yellow very close, about fifty meters. But before it is still necessary to wander through icy water strewn with foliage. All this must be taken into account before ulcer fishing. In order not to be in a condition - “sees the eye and the teeth are numb” - one should stock up on some means to go to the clean shore. It can be old tested "pants" from the officer chemical protection L-1. There are more modern PVC products of similar designs. But it is probably best to have a light boat in the backpack, similar to the ones on which hunters collect beaten game if there is no dog. Such boats weigh no more than 6 kg and do not take up much space. It should only be taken into account that they are made not of durable PVC, but of rubberized fabric. Therefore, one must be careful when making his way among snags and knots.
So you are on the shore
It seems that it remains only to uncover a powerful feeder, designed for rapid spring flow, to fill a heavy feeder with bait, toss tackle into still muddy water and to look forward to bite ... Yes, here, most likely, an extra-heavy fishing rod will be required. And the feeder can come in handy weighing as much as 200-250 grams. Also, a durable coil does not hurt. But if we talk about small rivers, along which ide and strong spring fish usually move, then such a long-range tackle will look a little ridiculous, well, like a cannon - like a sparrow ... The river, maybe, is only about forty meters wide. To that dear, probably, the rod can be threatened by sticks and firewood, sometimes going downhill. It is worth moving for some time away from the fishing camp and returning to find only the wreckage of this rod itself.
What a simpler equipment option can be found using the basic elements of the feeder - a feeder and a quivertype ">
Here, a surrogate substitute for the feeder is also quite applicable - a dummy with a heavy feeder feeder. Yes, you say, but throwing a tackle with your hand, there is a chance to catch a meter leash, both clothes and yourself. And even if this does not happen, then surely there will be knots and coastal grass on the hook. But in the spring, when the water is still relatively muddy, leashes of this length are not required . In addition, the spring ide is not at all as cautious as in the summer . And it will be enough to equip the feed-feeder with leashes about 30 cm long. And it will be quite convenient and safe.
Now about the design of such a shower
If the coast is clean, then you can use the old tried and tested method, where the main fishing line wound on a reel is laid out in rings on sand or clay. The reel is fixed on the shore, and the fishing line after casting is inserted into the cleavage of a flexible willow rod, which will serve as a quivertype. He will definitely show any bite. To sound the bite on it, you can fix the same bells that are used in the feeder, or hang a bell on a fishing line.
If the shore is cluttered, then you can reel the fishing line on a plastic bottle. For example, from "Actimel" or from a small bottle of lemonade. The fishing line will be dropped from it, as if from an inertialess reel. The main thing is that there is a recess under the fishing line on the bottle.
Feeders are used feeder, and the leash is attached using the same loops that are used in the feeder equipment.
Hooks in early spring are better to put a little larger than in the later period of spring. The ide is greedy and not so careful. And small hooks may simply not be noticed. There will be many gatherings.
In some places, the ide takes in early spring on steamed or canned peas. This happens on small rivers flowing near the villages. But most often the best and main bait is the “lobe” of dung or earthworms. The larger the better. Therefore, small feeder hooks are unsuitable here.
And the most important thing in successful catching an ide in the early spring is to get on time on its course . Then the simplest gears and simple baits, prepared by yourself, work. This is porridge and peas, boiled in the form of mashed potatoes. Good luck
