Half of the summer flew by unnoticed by many anglers, mid-July moved on and very little time remains until August. As they say, July is the crown of summer. Heat bewilders, pulls all the time in the chill. Fortunately, in our region it got a little colder, fishing became much more comfortable. Do not have time to look back and sneak up autumn. And there are trophy pikes just around the corner.
My recent purchase in the form of a new Intech Hit Nylon fishing line reel in 0.107 diameter haunted me. Somehow I bought and put the fishing line in a distant box, later I forgot for it altogether, because with a cord fishing even with mormyshki for me passed to the highest degree of comfort.
Sifting through a box with tackle in the evening, I stumbled upon a thin fishing line in a large unwinding and the thought came to my mind – it’s worth trying to catch it with purposeful burning and, so to speak, how the book writes. It is very interesting what will come of such fishing, because it is believed to be a classic nanojig without frills. Consequently, he quickly wrapped the fishing line on the spool of the reel and advanced to the evening fishing in order to draw interesting conclusions for himself and share them in his materials.
The river met warmly and picturesquely, insects fly at full speed near the water surface, the fish eats in the surface layer, which undoubtedly suits me. In view of the fact that fishing is supposed to be as delicate as possible, I took with me a box with several Intech tungsten mormyshki of the smallest weight in my presence – from 0.2 to 0.3 grams. Even with the thinnest cord, throwing a mormyshka of similar weight to an acceptable distance for animation is a very problematic solution, although if you practice and try, it is possible to do this. Still, catapulting a minimal line of fishing line is easier at times. I tie a mormyshka, put on a live bait and send the installation to a decent distance with a pendulum cast. What was my surprise when the mormyshka flew to a considerable distance from the shore for this type of fishing. Yes, one can’t find fault with the flight characteristics for sure, they are at their best, they are the maximum possible. Nevertheless, I’m interested in one more thing, besides casting, how much I will lose in gear sensitivity in general.
The first bites did not take long to wait, so he and nano-burning, so that he would always peck with him everywhere. The rudd showed their activity on hovering mormyshki in the water column with a smooth game with the tip of the rod.
It is worth noting that when fishing for small rudd, bites are not felt, but there is one large-scale plus that not a single cord can boast of. The passive rudd, which today stood strictly at the bottom, required the most protracted feed and long pauses. That same voluminous and large-scale plus fishing line played into my hands today. Bottom fish, in particular, medium-sized perch, which for one reason or another refused to bite today, due to a certain percentage of the elongation of the fishing line, absorbed the installation without any effort. It is such a factor as extensibility that plays a considerable positive percentage when fishing for passive bottom fish with mormyshing, allowing the same perch to suck in an installation with a smaller flow of water, thereby spending less of its strength and energy on food. Therefore, extensibility is not always a bad thing. This is a good option when you really need to catch.
The fish showed activity regularly, the rudd attacked the mormyshka along with the perch. A couple of quite pleasant ruddles also slipped by, which, again, were able to seduce thanks to the technique of catching mormyshka at the bottom with long pauses. Just stop the animation, move a little mormyshka at the bottom, as I see that the fishing line is starting to leave gradually – the fish is on the hook.
Based on the question of the sensitivity of the tackle – yes, it is lost when catching a passive fish that does not attack the mount confidently and does not sharply sideways. But, sacrificing a percentage of sensitivity, you can get a good result when catching passive summer fish. Actually, today I managed to prove it to myself. An interesting and peculiar approach that has long taken root in many athletes.
Fishing was a success, they managed to find the fish literally from the first casts. Active small individuals ate strictly at the surface and refused to dive deeper, while passive, but larger, managed to seduce during animation with pauses and movements in the bottom layer.
Definitely, I am taking this kind of fishing for myself. It is pleasant and unique, with the right approach with such tackle, it bites everywhere and you can just enjoy it right in your home pond, being literally in one place throughout the fishing. Yes, and the fish comes across from time to time, large and pleasant, at least the species composition will definitely please.
No tail, no scales.
