How to make a nod for winter fishing
Fishermen know that the impact of fishing depends on two things: luck and well-chosen gear. As for luck, there could be as lucky, but the choice of gear – the task of the fisherman. And equipment for catching fish in winter is different from summer accessories. One of the most important elements of winter fishing is the bite alarm, that is a nod.
Nowadays there are a huge selection of nods. They have different shapes, made of different materials, different sizes. Of course, you can buy the snap in the store, but many professional fishermen trust only the “homemade”.
Is it worth “powder and shot”?
To choose really working and efficient snap-in, will have to test not one nod, and only then you can be sure that your Arsenal added a truly “working” tackle. This applies both in-store options, and “homemade”.
Self made nods have the following advantages:
But apart from advantages there are some disadvantages:
Be aware that universal nod does not happen, so still need to make some models, because each fish their habits, and therefore need different accessories.
These models are the most reliable and durable. Used mainly in those cases when there is a game gear with high frequency, but small amplitude.
How to make:
Signaller of bite from a slice of the roulette
It is very elastic, and is used for trolling or jig.
To make this nod is very easy:
This model is perfectly suitable for rods with large or medium jigs.
Produce a nod in the following way:
What errors can occur and how to avoid them
If you have not enough experience in the manufacture Sivkovych alarms, inevitably there will be errors which will likely lead to an incorrect game gear and, consequently, to failure of the fishing in General. And though the process of making snap seems to be simple, the angler needs to fully concentrate on the process. Here are some of the error:
- As a result of wrong choice of material becomes practically invisible the moment it bites, and the fish breaks;
- The edges of the nod are not well treated. This rigging is very delicate. Even the error in the manufacture of 0.1 mm can significantly affect the final result. If the surface is uneven throughout, in some places it will be harder to bend, and eventually the rope will break;
- Incorrectly chosen length. Excessive flexibility occurs at a larger length leads to an incorrect action is inevitable. Conversely, if the nod is too short, it increased rigidity, and therefore, he is not able to correctly and timely transmit the bite.
In the manufacture of homemade products, pay attention to the weight of the bait, the stiffness properties of a nod, especially the behavior of fish. This will help to avoid common errors. And even better, if you first acquire a factory nod, watch how he behaves on the water, and only then, will undertake the creation of a more “efficient”.
