In recent years, even experienced fishermen-athletes are at a loss about what to call a fishing rod and a winter fishing rod. In my opinion, this discussion is not worth a damn. A fishing rod is a handle (with or without a coil) and a whip. Everything else is snap-in elements. When assembled, both the fishing rod and the snap-in elements are nothing more than a winter fishing rod: float, jigsaw, for fishing on vertical spinners and balancers. Float rods are familiar to many winter-anglers. These are the well-known "filly", they come with both one and two reel. A fishing rod with two reels allows you to use two fishing lines of different diameters. However, you have to adjust other equipment during the fishing process, which is not very convenient, especially in frosty weather.
Of course, you can also use reel tackle as a fishing rod, but in this case you need a special float with a longitudinal slot, which is attached to the fishing line with a wooden pin. Such a float is easy to put on a fishing line and easy to remove from it. Usually this is a fishing rod with a neoprene or cork handle equipped with an open reel, or a balalaika type fishing rod. A characteristic feature of a fishing rod with a nod and mormyshka is the absence of a tulip at the end of the whip. If you are a fan of sheer gait, you will need an easy-to-use fishing rod that allows you to quickly rewind and rewind the fishing line onto the spool. The Swedish company Abu Garcia, for example, produces good winter fishing rods with a reel, which comes with a softer six-piece and a spare spool. This is very convenient, because in the absence of a large predator (pike, pikeperch), you usually have to switch to catching perch. And here you will need a softer whip and a thinner fishing line.
Probably, we have a lot to learn from fishermen from Canada and the northern states of the USA, where fishing rods with a reel for fishing are successfully used for ice fishing. Their length is usually 50–70 cm, they are equipped with inertialess or multiplier reel. At the same time, a well-tuned friction clutch allows you to not force events even with relatively thin fishing line when fishing for large fish. True, I must note that with high snow cover on ice it is not very convenient to use such gear, since snow when throwing the fishing rod in the final stage of fishing can damage the coil. You can, of course, use various litter, but this is already troublesome, especially with an active search for fish.
Another important point. If you use reel tackle, you need to learn how to properly attach fishing line to the reel spool. First you need to wrap the fishing line around the axis of the spool, and then combine the free end with the main fishing line and pinch between the index and thumb. When using a braid, the knot is formed with a fishing line folded in half. Next, skip the free end into the loop and make three turns around the near section of the fishing line, then pass the free end of the fishing line through the loop on the main fishing line. Now we wet the knot and pull at the same time the free end and the main fishing line. When the knot is formed, fix it on the spool by pulling on the main fishing line. It remains only to cut off the excess end of the fishing line and fill the spool with the necessary amount of fishing line.
