Moreover, you still will not get the full enjoyment from fishing in constant expectation of staff supervision.

Use only high quality hooks that don’t straighten up when you strike a big fish. Hardened steel is our option. Always use a sharp hook, if you notice that the hook is blunt – replace immediately! Even new hooks, only taken out of the bag can be quite mild. Should be tested each hook separately. And used long hooks to replace.
21. Don’t skimp on the line
Quality line will allow you to provide decent resistance to your opponent for fishing carp. In fishing for carp as the main fishing line using monofilament, and the leash flurocarbon. Remember the first and the second type of scaffold must withstand a net load at break of at least 20% more weight potential prey.

Attach the hook to the PVA-bag a variety of ways
22. The variability of attaching boilies and hook to the grid PVA
Variants of fastening the hook to the grid, PVA can be a very large number. But the vast majority of cases, the hook is closely linked with one or two handle (note that boilies are not impaled on the hook, but only linked by a number). Carp sucks baits, and with them the hook.

Of course, quality reels, rods and bite alarms will never have the same level of impact on the success of fishing as qualitatively matched the bait that the fish really wants to eat with a great desire. Some anglers believe that the fish aren’t biting due to the insufficient high cost of coils or rods. This is not so. Well-chosen lures — without a doubt, the most important aspect of fishing and will have the greatest impact on the number and size of your catch. Tip: do not skimp on buying quality lures. The money will be spent absolutely not for nothing. Even when the end of the fishing day you have nothing – you lure the place an attractive bait. It will definitely affect future fishing trips.

31. Don’t be like all
Be creative. Carp is a creature of habit, in certain reservoirs it could how to get used to any bait, the diet and to opt for something that is more popular with anglers in another pond. Use lures of different shapes and colors, add flavors (both liquid and in powder form). It will greatly increase the chances of a biting finicky carp.
32. Proper use of bait is more important than its quality
High quality bait can greatly maximize your chances of catching carp, but how you apply the bait is much more important. Many young and inexperienced anglers based on only one bait, considering its quality and the most attractive. Thus overlook the details – the nature of the bottom, carp activity, depth of fishing, the weather, the current. We’ll talk more about the details of the application of different baits under different conditions of fishing.
33. Choice of bait
Bait is very important. We won’t advertise any brands. But resolve to do it to you if you write about your experience fishing on certain boilies and other carp baits. The fact remains. By really attractive lure will not pass even the most well-fed carp. This is verified even in very complex lakes. The worm is a good bait for carp in cold water

PVA pouch is a great way of carp fishing directly near the point of bait. The essence of the snap-ins that in a bag of PVA mesh boilie is pushed or other large bait, then the pouch is closed. It is attached to a fishing line. The hook on the leash is pierced in the bag. After getting into the water and reaching the bottom of the bag gets wet and dissolves, the bait covers the bottom and your hook with bait in the center of the “table”.
36. Canned corn – our all
Canned corn has long been considered a classic bait in Russia, but as it turned out, it is actively used when fishing for carp around the world. Stick corn can both singly and in 2-3 pieces.
37. Cooking caring for the health of the carp
Some ingredients require careful heat treatment. For example legumes (beans or peas) can cause big problems with digestion in carp due to the swelling of grains in the stomach, in the end it can lead to death. So beans, peas, nuts should be thoroughly steamed before use as bait.
38. Don’t forget to salt the bait!
Slightly salted your bait, you make it more attractive to carp because he likes the taste of salt. Of course, do not overdo it and do not salt all of the lure. But salty Boyle you have to be. Dips is attractant to give Boyle smell. Dip bait just before casting.
39. Aromatization bait
Fishermen are recommended to use bottles with attractants to flavor of your boilie. This will give more attraction to your bait in comparison with other components of the bait on the bottom. It is possible to aromatize and PVA mesh with bait, but make sure the attractant is oil-based, and not water, otherwise PVA-bag dissolves before you send it into the water.
40. Soak the boilies in the water
Soak boilies and other baits which have bright color and odor within 1-2 days. This saves them from the excessive brightness of color and will give a softer smell. It is desirable to use the water from the pond where you want to catch carp.
41. Oil pellets and granules
In the cold season (spring, autumn, winter) it is impractical to use oil pellets and granules in the role of bait. The oil solidifies and becomes much less attractive.
42. Quality > quantity
Using a small amount of a good boilie is much more effective than the use of a large number of less appetizing baits. The higher palatability of your baits the more carp you will catch.
43. Make up your own bait
Make your own boilies or any other type of lures, which will include your actually invented ingredients. Maybe the carp will reward your enthusiasm with a quick bite. Fishing technique
44. Be mobile
Try not to stick to techniques “will catch here in this place”. Our tip: never go fishing with a pre-planned navigation route and finding places. In most cases, fish will be where you were not expecting, so be sure to try new places. So you gain much more experience in catching carp. Feed the places where there are carp, and carp do not wait for the bait to where it is not. In addition, if you see a legitimate reason for change of a place change the disposition of not thinking, and you will be sure that the fish is much easier to find constantly moving.
45. Works – do not touch!
It is difficult to understand anglers who change the bait, even after the most incredible catches. From year to year we see anglers who almost emptied the lake using just one type, make, model of the lure. And then, next year, decide to change the lure for another, sometimes, even close is not similar to last catchability option. If the carp liked one of the draws, he willingly eats her as bait, bite on your snap – in is a sign that the bait is working and the carp it that much, so why change it? No need to change (unless of course you have no evidence that the bait loses its power). Some anglers say that baits “burned out” and nibble on the bait became over time much weaker, in fact it is easily explained by the fact that the fish have changed their habits, tendencies or behavior (but it has not ceased to love this bait!).
Try to change your tactics, using the same bait, and you will find that your results will improve. The fish are not as smart to over time start to fear any type of lures. Carp in a certain pond likes the bait, it feels the smell of the bait and if he feels that is what he likes – he will definitely eat it. Very flavoured/coloured baits the internal nutrient content of low quality, significantly less preferred. To such bait carp can actually initially set eyes, but then tasted will understand that it is not that he was hungry. Such baits work well for the first time on the pond, much like selling tickets to the premiere of the movie, whereas a couple of weeks the interest in the film is already close to zero. Coastal zone — a great food source for carp
46. Don’t neglect fishing from the shore
Some of the largest carp in the country was caught in the 20-30 cm from the shore. Steep Bank in most lakes, rivers, canals is a great source of food for carp.
47. Be adventurous
Give carp a try that not using your anglers opponents. Fish can reward you in a moment.
48. Feel the bottom
Feel the nature and depth of the bottom. After casting the fishing line is in tension, while the snap-in will not sink to the bottom. Once the bottom has been reached – your line will SAG. Also, speed posting, you will be able to determine the bottom topography and nature (silt, shell, clay, pebbles).
49. Trust your method of fishing
If you adhere to a certain method of fishing and want to find out it will bring you success – suggest to remain faithful to him in whatever he became, for a predetermined period of time. To abandon the method because of lack of bites is inappropriate, perhaps the reason the details over you need to work.
50. Do not hesitate with the change of place
Get ready to move. You should not indicate their presence through the unfolding of various gear and related attributes around places. Be more mobile. Fish often change place and is visible to the naked eye.
51. And the fish-then sailed
The lion’s share of anglers catch carp on a not very great distance from the shore (40-60 meters). But with the influx of carp anglers feels the danger and goes to more distant frontiers, but the fishermen think that carp are not interested in the bait. Success belongs to only those who will be able to send your bait to 100-140 meters. But do not forget about the rule of fishing near the shore (tip # 46).
52. Don’t neglect fishing at the surface
On hot summer days do not neglect fishing at the surface. Some successful anglers catch big carp every year in the upper layers and this is justified tactic in those moments when no one bites on the bottom.
53. Try again
Trial and error – what leads a person to success in any business. Fishing for carp is no exception. You don’t have to change gear completely, but you can try to fish in other areas, change parts snap-on is more thin, apply another lure and so on.
54. Do not worry due to the loss of fish
If there was a gathering of fish, then the fish was stronger than you. You will have the opportunity to improve their playing skills, improve their gear and equipment and, of course, to sharpen the hooks. Fishing is the process of evolution of the angler new to the professional angler. It would be less than pleased if the process of evolution went in the opposite direction.
55. Effort = number of fish caught
The more you put efforts the more you will catch carp. This also applies to how much rainy fishing you will hatch it, how much time you get out fishing at 4 am. Equipment Polarized glasses will protect your eyes from the bright glare on the water
56. Polarized glasses
Better not go out fishing without polarized glasses. Winter, summer, fall, spring – they will help you all year round. It is important to see where the fish are and polarized glasses remove glare and allow you to see everything you need.
57. Take spare clothes
Carpfishing – is often a prolonged fishing, especially in the case of hunting big carp. In this case, you will need a spare set of clothing. You don’t know will remain Sunny weather or the rain, after which few would want to stay out fishing in wet clothes.
58. Mediocrity suits you
I advise you not to wear bright clothes. Put grey, green, brown or other, merging with nature color. It is also very important not to have reflective elements in the first place this applies to your points. If they will create glare is bad for your stealth for carp.
59. Gloves to protect my fingers from braids

63. A comfortable chair
A comfortable chair will help to spend hours waiting for a bite in comfort. It can be folding or stationary, most importantly that he was comfortable and then the process of fishing you will be in joy.
64. Do not complicate your life
Many fishing devices only complicate the life of fishing. They are made under the guise of useful devices, but you can easily do without them. Use only what really solves problems, not creates them. Care for the carp, personal hygiene take care of the health of the carp
65. Care caught carp
You have a first aid kit for the treatment of fish? You do not even heard? I advise you to adopt, especially if you have a fishing wish to thank the carp, who tried to remain in the pond and brought you much joy. First aid kit for treatment of wounds carp is not very expensive, but it is much easier life fish you release, and someday you will again be able to catch her, already more prepared for your fight.
66. Antibacterial wipes
Antibacterial wipes or liquid required for treatment of hands after contact with fish. Before you touch food, tea, drinks, or attributes of everyday life – you have to handle hands that have picked up unwanted bacteria.

To take carp in his hands better than just with wet hands to avoid damaging its protective film. Long exposure to air, the carp is not desirable. Also be sure to use the special wet mats or cloth to put the carp to photograph. Moisten the gills of carp with water from the reservoir watering them from small veterochki.
68. Rules for exemption of carp
Professionals suggest putting the fish should be only with their own hands, dropping into the water the body of a carp in a horizontal position.
