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

Fishing hook is one of the main components of the fishing kit. Serves for planting bait with the subsequent engagement and retention of the fish during its cutting 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 with a special fishing knot.

Elements of equipment

The main element of the rig is a fishing hook or several hooks through a small distance (from 20 to 500 mm.), On which, usually, 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, allowing long-distance 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 snap-in for the feeder (English bottom gear), the majority use a symmetrical loop, the Gardner paternoster and an asymmetrical loop.

Sharpening of hooks

  • Cut Point - chemical sharpening.
  • Cone cut - trihedral grinding.
  • Needle Cone - a new technology for pressing sharpening.
  • Fastgrip - sharp with three beards.

Material of hooks

  • Vanadium is a vanadium high-carbon steel.
  • Hi carbon is high carbon steel.
  • Stainless steel - stainless high carbon steel. The alloy contains zinc, aluminum and chromium.

Cover of hooks

  • BK - black
  • BK - blue

  • BZ - bronze

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 with fewer petals and do not go beyond the cone of their rotation - they are good for catching bryos in overgrown places; on the bait of the "Pilker" type put hooks slightly more than the thickness of the bait - it means depriving yourself of the catch.

Sometimes, you have to change hooks during fishing, depending on which fish are attacking and what game of bait she likes - large 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, blunted 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 stinger ("Eagle Claw") can not be sharpened.

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

Against the backdrop of the bait, the hook is so imperceptible and insignificant that there is no difference. This is somewhere on the level of drawing scales of fish on wobblers and blyosnah - beautiful, but there is no sense.

In addition, as the depth of color increases, they cease to differ, and the red disappears first.

The meaning in selecting 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.
