Trout. Trout can be different, there are many types of it, respectively, and there are not enough tools for catching it. On the other hand, in relation to our general conditions, the species choice is rather narrow, it is either brook trout (conditionally) or pond trout. So in this case we will divide not by types, but by fishing classes. And there are two classes in our case: stream and quiet water (area). By the way, there are also several species of pond trout, but mainly these are varieties of steelhead salmon, a general term for the definition of rainbow trout. As for the tools, specialization in fishing classes in this case is precisely the subject.
And so tools for fishing trout in calm water class area. Some subtleties and peculiarities should be noted here. Japan is the original legislator of this type of fishing. However, the peculiarity of the Japanese is that the object of fishing is actually the same wild trout. Artificial reservoirs can be different with little or no current, but the object is the same as in the wild. Anyway, everything would be fine, but the subtlety is also that the weight of the object of catching rarely reaches a kilogram. Accordingly, Japanese designers sculpt tools based on such parameters.
In our conditions, rainbow trout can reach significant values, and at times and only the conditions of the area-catch allow avoiding critical options in case of excessive load. Although history knows various examples, for example, when, in a poorly equipped pond, a weighty salmon went into the reed thickets, and the fisherman, because of the delicate tackle, could not oppose it. It will not be superfluous to mention that, in principle, in spinning, in terms of its construction, we use the fruits of a foreign culture. It is not for nothing that we periodically have references to the Japanese in various exemplary cases. By the way, this also applies to Europe, albeit to a lesser extent, since the experience of catching pond trout there is much more significant than in our country. By the way, the experience of fishing pond trout on silicone, which has come to us, is purely European, in Japan, trout is not caught like that.
But how they catch pond trout in Korea is an open question for me personally, I only know that they catch rainbow trout there too. However, in general, I am familiar with the Korean derivatives of this plan. I have been fishing for pond trout for a long time, so quite a few tools have passed through my hands. It was all the more interesting to try out a new tool from JS Company in my hands, namely Asense Tournament Special SS622 LF
In general, the abbreviation on the tools is very tricky, so there is no point in going into deciphering, the main thing is the main determining parameter for the test, and this is 0.7 – 3.5g. 03. By all indications, it turns out that the rod is of a real UL class. and if everything matches the label on the butt, then it may not be so simple in the fight against a weighty object.
It’s time to think about it, but I don’t know Koreans. )) Well, in something, but they never skimp on the power reserve. On the other hand, the upper threshold of the test – 3.5g also leads to certain thoughts, so only a test on water will show the truth.
As for the ergonomics of the instrument, here I personally had no questions from the word at all. In principle, in instruments of this type, I prefer the classics, this is when natural materials are used in the reel-holder, and if composites, then the gamma should be kept in characteristic tones. Here there is also a cork at the base, and the insert, although composite, is like a tree.
In addition, the grip itself is made in the style of Old Skool and, let’s say, conditionally warms the soul. At least when I put on the TD Daiwa Aegis 2004 reel, I didn’t get any emotions other than comfort.
Another thing is the main working part – the form itself. It is also worth noting that the entire body kit is made in titanium. This is not as a confirmation of class, it is a decrease in weight characteristics, but the class must be taken as a matter of course.
In addition, the spinning rod is made in the solid-tip concept. This circumstance inspired certain thoughts in terms of application.
The very solid concept is often encountered, and I am familiar, it is, as a rule, a nautical theme, all the more solid is different, both hard and “mop with a nod”. In the trout theme, everything is done differently, and there is no need to go into specifics here. However, proceeding from other points, both in the test and in the librage, there were some doubts about the range of baits – did the Koreans really take into account the silicone segment? On the other hand, you need to understand that building an instrument is not taken from the ceiling, but is done for certain goals and objectives. In general, to find out all the points of interest, a test on the water and on the fish is needed.
Water … water, it is, it will show the truth. How many times it happened, in the hands of one thing, but on the water is completely different. I had no doubts about the class of the instrument, all doubts concerned only test indicators and the instrument’s specialization itself and the specifics of its application. The first casts in the standard equipment showed that the recommendations for the line are quite justified. You just need to take into account that Sunline Small Game PE # 0.3 is 6 Lb. which actually does not affect anything, except for the positive side.
Using the lures, starting from the lower threshold of the test, I checked the cast. The send of a lure of 0.7 grams is guaranteed to reach 10-12 meters, if you strain and invest, then the range can certainly be increased. On the upper border, questions are immediately removed, you just have to put the recommended 3.5 grams. It is immediately clear that this is not the limit at all, I set consistently 4 and 5 grams and realized that the spinning rod serves the ‘five’ quite sanely. I do not use large weights, so in this case these data were enough for me. There are some nuances in working with voluminous (wobblers), I can only say that the regular Jackall Chubby 38F does not cause any questions. With regard to silicone … here my samples are limited, since I do not use it often in my fishing, but based on the logic of the spinning rod, with the lower weight threshold, I can say that there will be no problems, especially since we have a solid-tip.
With regard to working with fish, the instrument both surprised and pleased. Let’s just say that in terms of condition, the trout in our reservoirs is different. It may happen that an individual weighing two kilograms will not give the necessary fight, exactly the one you expect, at the same time, the “kiloshnik” can deliver in such a way that the adrenaline will be more than enough. Simply put, it all depends on the sports form the object is in. Where my trials took place, the trout is always in good, necessary form, exactly the one that allows us to evaluate all the parameters objectively. The “golden mean” of one and a half kilos in weight, with a tail like a “peacock” – isn’t that wonderful? So, on scales from 2.7 to 4 grams, a significant distance is obtained in the cast, and in this situation, if the grip on the throw shows all the qualities of the tool. Absolutely everything, both positive and negative. I would like to point out right away that the Asense Tournament Special’s sensitivity level is very high in every sense. Those. all the nuances of the wiring are tactilely felt, the spinner’s own play, extraneous influences and it does not matter what kind they are, whether it touches an object or is it just a third-party obstacle. Simply put, the information content of the spinning rod is at the proper height, I was pleased with it.
After the bite, the work on the implementation – here, as it were, complete comfort. With a completely weakened clutch at a long distance after a bite, normal operation and the clutch is triggered only after passing half the distance. Well, then the restraining resource is fully switched on, the clutch pulls up a little and that’s enough. By the way, in the process of implementation on the object, you need to be more decisive, the delicacy of the tool is very deceptive, holding back the resource of the spinning rod is more than abundant. With such a tool, with proper careful handling of the object, even more noble weights will not be a problem.
As a summary – as a result, we have a sensitive tool, flexible like a whip of a vine, it sticks to the fish almost by itself, plus the power in the butt, which sometimes allows you to force the fishing of a significant object. As for the design, entourage and other attributes, I think that it is unnecessary to focus on it, this is already in plain sight. Here’s a JS Asense Tournament Special – a real Korean.
P.S. How to explore the entire line, the rest of the options are too interesting.
