Long range bobber: features selection and installation
Often fishing there are conditions under which it is extremely inconvenient and sometimes impossible to catch a simple float rig. Such conditions include, first of all, the need to deliver the bait on long and extremely long distances with fixation of the bite visually on the float. It is when the angler is on the shore, and sought the object of fishing – at a sufficient distance from it. Usually this way you catch large peaceful fish in still water or at low flow.
In this case, the rod used match type, in some cases at medium distances Bolognese rods. Fast sinking fishing line is taken and a well calibrated, good slip at crossing rings.
Long-range floater by definition, is a major element of the set. Because cast tooling at a great distance requires a relatively heavy shipment, and set away in the operating position – the desired visual inspection of the antenna of the alarm device, so its weight often amounts to more than 12 grams, and length up to 40 inches.
By their geometry, they are divided into two types: representing an elongated cylinder, for the average length of the casting; and the second — type spindles, where the bottom is the body of the float in the form of an ellipse, with the adjoining very short keel, and up is high bright antenna. A shortened keel has its own weight and can have removable washers(weights) that give some flexibility in the regulation of drowned float. If the keel is not collapsible, this process is carried out using lead pellets in a snap. The antenna is painted with different colors in alternating stripes, which gives good visibility from far distances. Additionally, the antenna can be mounted empennage. It can have two complementary purposes – to improve the flying qualities of the float, and give it extra visibility. The keel includes mounting a wire ring. To it is attached the latch with a swivel at the other edge of which is molded into the bead for free sliding on the line. Using silicone stoppers, beads or pellets, is needed for different fishing conditions installation degree of freedom of the float. That is, either it’s a setting in one place and for a specific length of the sides of the end-to-end throughput busine – this is a remote installation, or the upper stopper is displaced to the desired height and the float moves freely along the wire – rolling installation.
Remote mounting is used, if the depth at the place of production of fish is relatively large and accessories when casting will not be confused. When the distance from the surface to the bottom will begin to exceed 1-1,5 meters, without moving snap in the far distance is not enough. The beauty of this installation lies in the fact that it is possible to sh in virtually any depth where they are real trophy fish.
The material from which is made considering the floats are usually specially processed tree of light breeds, or high quality plastic.
