Markings of HOOKS and a little about the HOOKS

Крючки, маркировка, описание, мифы

Tooling - a variety of elements, attached to the line, necessary for fishing.

A fishing hook is one of the main components of a fishing kit. Serves for planting bait with the subsequent engagement and retention of fish when it is undercut and vyvazhivanii. 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 crocked, bronzed, nickel-plated, "gilded" (titanium nitride coated) hooks. Fastened to the rod fishing line, which is tied a special fishing knot.

Elements of equipment

The main element of the rig is a fishing hook or several hooks after a short distance (from 20 to 500 mm.), On which, usually, the bait is planted, and to which the caught fish is hooked. Additional elements of the snap determine the method of fishing and the name of the tackle.

For float fishing rod, the float and sinker are mandatory.

For spinning, additional rigging elements are artificial baits, to which the hook is attached.

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

In the bottom gear on the line a sinker is fixed, which makes it possible to carry out long casting, and ensuring the bait on the bottom. Instead of a sinker, a feeder is often used, which draws fish to the bait.

As a snare for the feeder (English bottom tackle), in most cases, a symmetrical loop, the Gardner paternoster and an asymmetrical loop are used.

False beliefs about hooks

The hook should slightly extend beyond the edges of the bait

In fact, it all depends on the bait, the place and the fish. There are spinning baubles, hooks on which are smaller than petals and do not go beyond the cone of their rotation - they are good for catching such blyos in overgrown places; On the bait of the "Pilker" type, putting hooks a little bit more than the thickness of the bait means depriving yourself of the catch.

Sometimes, you have to change hooks in the process of catching, depending on which fish are attacking and what game of bait she likes - big hooks stabilize the bait game and make it smaller (less sweeping) and calm, but "too tough" Small fish. So pick up the hooks using common sense.

Do you need to sharpen new hooks?

Or you are a masochist, buying stupid hooks, then to sharpen them, or you simply do not know anything about their production sharpening. Many hooks bar is simply contraindicated - their sharpening has its own characteristics, which you simply destroy.

Hacking makes sense with hooks with an ordinary sting, dulled in the process of catching. It is not to sharpen, but only to undermine - then they will serve you long and true.

Hooks that have a non-standard sharpening (again, remember "Owner"), or an unusual sting ("Eagle Claw") can not be sharpened.

Tees should be red, in order to cause greater interest in fish.

Against the backdrop of the bait, the hook is so imperceptible and insignificant that there is no difference. It's somewhere at the level of drawing scales of fish on wobblers and blenesses - it's beautiful, but there's no sense.

In addition, as the depth of color increases, they no longer differ, and the first one disappears just red.

The meaning in the selection of the color of the hook is only when fishing at shallow depths, using baits like worms - then the hook looks like an extension of his body. And then, the question is controversial.
