Review of winter rods “Kola and HLC-Y Yellow”

Overview of two Akara winter fishing rods: Kola A9010B and HLC-Y Yellow. I chose one fishing rod as a bottom tackle, and the other has one advantage.

The choice of winter fishing rods is just as important as the choice of summer carbon fiber fishing rods for fly fishing and feeder rods for bottom fishing. Among the variety of such fishing rods, you need to find a fishing rod that is suitable for your fishing, so that the fishing rod is on the arm and matches the parameters and loads. It’s certainly tempting to use some fishing rods universally for different types of fishing on the same fishing, since you don’t have to take a lot of gear with you for each type of fishing, but this is inconvenient, because the conditions for bandaging hooks, setting a different nod and other operations are not always optimal. When an icy wind blows and the fishing line is huddled in dense “beards” on snow, it is sometimes simply impossible to convert gear, especially in poor visibility.

Winter Rod Kola

This winter fishing rod, called Akara Kola A9010B, I first tried to use for different purposes. This was prompted by the presence of two whips in this fishing rod, which differ in stiffness, length and parameters. One of the whips has access rings. In addition, this whip corresponds in terms of rigidity to the parameters of the rod for nesting the predator from the ice. If desired, this fishing rod can be used as a donkey, which is convenient to install near the hole, and also as a fishing rod for fishing on spinners and balancers from ice. But such a choice must be made in advance at home, without having to quickly re-equip the fishing rod on ice.

I chose this fishing rod as bottom gear

This choice is facilitated by the presence of the stand of the legs, which are equipped with sharp pins that cut into the ice, which makes this fishing rod reliable for installation near the hole. In addition, the fishing rod is equipped with an open reel with a trigger brake and a hard whip, which allows you to suspend a rather heavy load for bottom gear. I even used this fishing rod as a prototype of the feeder, hanging a snap with a feeder feeder weighing 15 grams and supplying the tip of the whip with a feeder bell. The nod in this version would be spring with a bright and large ball. Such nods are used for “mahalka” with which zander and bersh will flash. But even in the version of the feeder from the ice, it quite naturally fit into the general appearance of the bottom fishing rod.

I advise you to read - Feeder at the hole

Now this fishing rod is used as an ordinary donka for fishing on summer equipment, where instead of mormyshka two hooks and a load-bucket are tied.

If desired, the same Akara Kola fishing rod can be adapted for fishing on vertical spinners and balancers. You just need to install the yellow even stiffer whip, equipped with two access rings. The stand of two legs can be removed. And then you get a fully functional “makhalka”. Allows the length of the fishing rod assembly, which is 53 centimeters. Kola fishing rod weighs 67 grams.

Fishing rod Akara HLC-Y Yellow

This fishing rod from the company Akara is an original tackle without a reel. Instead of the reel used on the “shanks” on this fishing rod, its role is played by a reel made of pressed durable polystyrene painted in bright yellow yellow, which allows you to see the fishing rod in the snow at a considerable distance. The reel also serves as a handle, which lies comfortably in the palm of your hand. In addition, the reel, which is a double, performs another role. A smaller reel serves for winding fishing line, which corresponds to the length found in a given place depth. When moving to another hole, you do not need to rewind the fishing line and again search for a new depth in a new place, etching the fishing line with the bait to the bottom. You just need to wind the line on the small reel and drop the line on the other hole by tilting the reel down. The fishing line will be freely dumped from this reel under the weight of the bait or balancer. It remains only to adjust the length of the fishing line if the depth in the new location is less or more than in the previous hole. And it can be some centimeters. When fishing on the “makhalka” with a reel, fishing line with a found length under the depth at the fishing site is usually typed in rings on the hand in order to drop it into the hole in a new place. This is also an option, and a quick, but not always, fishing line is dumped successfully. Sometimes she gets confused, rolls into knots and loops, especially if the fishing line is thin, and the angler has little experience in such fishing.

The fishing rod weighs a little - 21.8 g, and its length with a whip is 40 cm . The whip is rigid, made of monolithic carbon fiber.
