Snap-in - a variety of items, fixed on the fishing line, necessary for fishing.

Fishing hook - one of the main components of the fishing kit. It is used to set the bait and then catch and hold the fish while hooking it and pulling it out. Modern fishing hooks are made of stainless or high carbon steels; in the latter case, protective coatings are used to protect against corrosion: there are blued, bronzed, nickel-plated, “gold-plated” (coated with titanium nitride) hooks. Fastened to the rod fishing line, which is tied with a special fishing knot.

Tooling items

The main element of the tooling is a fishing hook or several hooks through a small distance (from 20 to 500 mm.), On which the bait is usually placed, and which the pecked fish picks up. Additional elements of the tooling determine the method of fishing and the name of the gear.

For float fishing rods, float and weights are required.

For a spinning additional elements of equipment - artificial baits to which the hook fastens.

In fly fishing, the hook is one with an artificial bait (front sight) imitating an insect.

A sinker is fixed in the bottom tackle on the fishing line, which allows for long-distance casting and ensures that the bait is at the bottom. Instead of a sinker, a feeder is often used to attract fish to the bait.

As equipment for the feeder (English bottom gear), most of them use a symmetrical loop, Gardner paternoster, and an asymmetrical loop.

Elements of equipment: hook; leash; float; sinkers; feeding trough; spoon; wobbler; swivel; jig head; jigger; artificial fly; fishing reel. Circle fishing.

Sharpening hooks

  • Cut Point - chemical sharpening.
  • Cone cut - trihedral mechanical sharpening.
  • Needle Cone is a new compressed grinding technology.
  • Fastgrip - pointed with three beards.

False hook beliefs

The hook should go a little bit beyond the edges of the bait.

In fact, it all depends on the bait, place and fish. There are rotating blades, the hooks on which are smaller than the petals and do not go beyond the cone of their rotation - it is good to catch such blankets in overgrown places; on a pilker type of bait, putting hooks a little more than the thickness of the bait is to deprive oneself of the catch.

Sometimes, you have to change hooks in the process of catching, depending on what kind of fish attacks and what kind of bait game she likes - big hooks stabilize (level) the bait game and make it smaller (less sweeping) and calm, but not too tough small fish. So pick the hooks using common sense.

New hooks need to sharpen?

Either you are a masochist who buys blunt hooks to sharpen them later, or you simply do not know anything about their production sharpening. Many hooks bar is simply contraindicated - their sharpening has its own characteristics that you just destroy.

It makes sense to erode hooks with the usual sting, dull in the process of fishing. It is not to sharpen, but only to erode, - then they will serve you for a long time and truly.

Hooks that have a non-standard sharpening (remember “Owner again”) or a non-standard sting (“Eagle Claw”) cannot simply be sharpened.

Tees should be red in order to generate more interest in the fish.

Against the background of the bait, the hook is such an imperceptible and insignificant detail that there is no difference. This is somewhere at the level of drawing fish scales on wobblers and blades - it's beautiful, but there's no point.

In addition, with increasing depth, the colors no longer differ, and red is the first to disappear.

The meaning in the selection of the color of the hook is only when fishing at a shallow depth, when using baits such as worms - then the hook looks like an extension of his body. And even then, a moot point.
