In the last 5-6 years I’ve been addicted to this wonderful method of fishing, as fishing in the Tyrolean wand. What is Tyrolean wand? Easier to see than to explain. In a nutshell — a hollow tube containing the air, the lower end of the wand ends with a sinker (which can be different weights), and the upper part ends with a fastener sticks. What is the feature and the nuances of fishing on tyrolka. The fact that Tyrolean wand allows the hooks or baits (small blazenka, flies, jigs, or just the hooks) to be always above the bottom or above the bottom vegetation, over rocks and other areas that are a barrier to the normal bottom posting (but in such places, as it usually happens, and is production). Meanwhile, Tyrolean wand allows you to make far casting, posting at the bottom, with the number of hooks will be minimal, if you compare exactly the same installation, but with the usual pear-shaped sinker, or a sinker in the form of small sticks. Tyrolean wand can have different length, tube diameter, weight of sinkers, accordingly, catching with the use of the Tyrolean stick in still water and in current. Depending on the fishing conditions chosen tyrolka the desired length and weight.
Installation Tyrolean sticks are very simple, and in some species it copies something Caroline and Moscow snap-in. On the other hand, Tyrolean wand can be mounted on the end of the line, and above it, approximately 40-50 inches to install leashes with the necessary bait or hooks with bait. It is important to understand that the length of the leash must not be too large. On the other hand, when fishing on tyrolka on the course, I put the leash twice Tirole, and perch pecked quite properly. When mounting the Tyrolean stick-type Karolinska snap, there are several ways: the installation sticks on a triple swivel (in this case, the stick does not slip on the wood), and the needle sticks directly through the fixture to the main line. This method allows the current to keep the wand as if on the spot, and pitting line and pulling it, to play the way the bait on interesting plot. In my practice I most often use the method of snap, when the wand is docked on the bottom gear, so I’m more familiar and easier, and hooks can sometimes be less, although the leashes in this case, I often get confused around the main fishing line.
The wiring sticks is very simple. After casting, you have to drop gear on the bottom, and then lightly pull the rope at the bottom, doing light jiggle, jump. She’s gonna hit the bottom to raise the turbidity to attract the fish, and leashes are always on the bottom, but do not cling to the obstacles, as the stick always gets the best of them. But hooks are still, as yet no tool that completely would rule out hooks. When fishing in the Tyrolean wand is not required sharp jerks, everything happens very smoothly. If on leashes with hooks with bait (worm or maggot), then after casting the bait behaves very naturally, the fish doesn’t feel the trick. If conditions allow, you can install small lures. In my practice, I put a surface lure, a small twitterati. Perch in places with this snap-in does not go unnoticed, and sometimes pike missing. To my mind, for perch on the tackle, optimally proven leashes with the usual hook (hook number depending on the type of bait and size of the intended fish) and elastomer (silicone on simple and offset hooks). Crankbaits are also good, but when errors posting this bait sometimes overlaps with the main fishing line. To partially avoid this effect, you can remove the middle hook on the crank, leaving only the tail.
When fishing on tyrolka important to keep tension on the fishing line, otherwise you may miss the bite.
And finally, Tyrolean wand can be purchased at the bait shop, while in the reserve it is desirable to have at least 3-4 sticks of different weights and size. But if desired, and the minimum skills that Tyrolean wand completely done independently, I will tell you.
Good luck and all the best.
