What is a water filled float, and how to catch such tackle

More and more people seek to escape from the hustle and bustle and sit with a fishing rod on the nature. And as the population’s interest in fishing increases, manufacturers of fishing products supply markets for the latest items of tackle and accessories. One such innovation is water-filled float (the ball).

What is this water-filled float

The device, called a water filled float, or ball, intended for delivery to the place of fishing lures of various mild. Ball diameter 3.0-3.5 cm consists of two hemispheres that are securely bonded to each other. The weight of the float depends on the amount of accumulated water in it.

Such devices mainly kept on the surface of the reservoir, therefore, their penetration requires additional shipping. Ugrozavanje fishermen seek the delivery of water-filled float at the required depth.

Anglers agree that water-filled balloons don’t so much scare the fish because have a configuration similar to the air bubble fish. The color of the float, usually either natural, or even colorless.

In Boca ball mounted in the lugs serve for mounting the gear, and in the case done through holes that must be closed with rubber plugs.

How to attach a water-filled balloon to the line

In principle, to mount the tackle is very simple: in one ear in any way we tied the main line. Better still for this purpose to use a carbine, previously only need to check whether the rope is threaded in a loop. Option with lobster clasp is perfect when you plan to sh in different sub-bottom layers. Thus, it is possible to quickly replace this model with float snap on normal (and Vice versa).

To the other eyelet of the float way “loop the loop” is attached to the leash. The thickness of the line driver to be small: 0.14-0.18, mostly because that kind of tackle used for catching not larger fish. Depending on the fish size, the length of the leash pick up from 0.5 to 1.5 M.

In the area of the hooks of the tackle is loaded multiple lead pellets at 0.2 grams. So you will be able to more evenly distribute weights throughout the length of the leash. Hooks can use a variety of models.

The process of fishing on a water-filled float

In principle, there is very big difference between the regular fishing or fly fishing with water filled floats, but the most important ball in front of the casting will need to fill with water. To do this, open the side cover, the rope sinks deep into the pond and filled with liquid to the desired level. At the end of the procedure, you will remain tightly closed the holes in the body with rubber corks.

From the filled amount of water will depend on the weight of equipment, and, of course, the casting distance. At the moment of contact with the float surface of the water, will make a loud slap. Fish from noise, are spread out (in some cases Vice versa), but after some time will sail back to the place of fishing.

The greater the volume of liquid inside the vessel, the deeper the float will be submerged. Another advantage of the large mass is to reduce sail when casting. This means that in a strong wind the ball will fly in the right direction, and it can not be demolished by the wind, which is a notable advantage compared with conventional tackle.

When fishing in rivers the float will be demolished over down, and the fisherman need only a little off your line on the spool. On the lakes it’s possible sometimes to poshevelit bait while playing with fishing line in different directions.

Though “Bulba” may seem rude, this is not true — the bite tackle signals very well. Its principle of operation: the fish touches the leash, the movement is transferred up and the water begin to diverge circles. According to their amount of experienced fisherman can recognize interested in whether the fish bait, and even likely able to determine the weight of fish.

A method of manufacturing a water-filled float at home

For making the gear we need:

  • a tennis ball or any other hard rounded plastic;
  • plastic straw (such as from juice);
  • lead sinker.

Aplause plastic rod from one end so that it formed a rim. Ball drill (or heated awl, as in the picture) in the center of both halves so that the hole diameter was slightly smaller diameter straws.

Then, she put on already drilled in advance lead pellet. On the tip of the straw to attach one part of the case, and the bullet on the shift rod close to the plastic shell (the grain needs to fix the cover on the inside).

The second end of the case also fastened on the straw, and externally heated. That’s all. Left mount snap-in rods.
