Heavy relief

Need a big load, so you can put a lighter float ... How is this possible? The unusual interaction of a sinking bombard and a regular float makes sensitive float fishing possible over long distances.

Long range float fishing is rough fishing. In order to make as far casts as possible, the float must have a high carrying capacity. And because of this, the sensitivity and accurate determination of the bite is reduced. But often some fish need to be caught with very sensitive equipment. Using a specific technique, it is possible to change the equipment in such a way that even with a thin light float it is possible to push the equipment to a far located lured place. An important component of the equipment is borrowed from another fishing method - the Sbirulino method. With the help of a trout bomber float, a floater can achieve a long casting range. The highlight of the slowly sinking bombard is that it only affects a float in a small part of its flight mass. For example, the mass of a sinking model in air is 15 g, and under water it corresponds to a mass of a sinker of 3 g.

Instead of a sinker

Bombard in combination with the usual float becomes a real miracle weapon. The equipment is mounted as follows. First, a float with a carrying capacity of 4 g is put on a fishing line. Then a sinking bombard with a casting mass of 15 g follows. It is stopped with a swivel, above which a rubber bead is put on to protect the knot. Depending on the depth of the pond, a piece of fishing line 50-100 cm long is fastened to the swivel, on which a load is placed. Since the bombardment affects the float with a force of 3 g, it is additionally possible to pinch a line with a total mass of 1 g on the fishing line in order to precisely balance the float. A leash with a hook is attached to a piece of fishing line with a hook-and-loop method.

Heavy but sensitive

So, we have a snap with a load weight of 16 g, which can be thrown far.

In water, it “loses” a large part of the mass and allows for sensitive fishing of even careful non-predatory fish and clearly bites. This method is especially successful when fishing in stagnant and slowly flowing water bodies. For bomber fishing in strong currents, on the contrary, there is too much carrying capacity. As a result, the bait rises and is difficult to control. The rod for this method must be adapted for large loads and long casts. It is best to use a solid Bolognese with an appropriate high test.
