Fishing in Devon
Where did you get the name, is not known. Some believe that rooted in the distant geological past; others talk about its geographical origins, meaning, obviously, the County of Devon; others say, “what’s the word that first appeared among canadian anglers, and the fourth link with the English diving “snorkeling and diving”. Rather, the allowance was originally used for sea fishing. Later they were used for catching salmon, and our anglers with their help, hunt in ASP. With the advent of all sorts of lures and soft baits, Devon is no longer relevant. Less and less anglers using them, they have almost no sales happen. So we have an avid “generation” make allowance themselves, since it’s easy. But more on that later.
The allowance can be attributed to a special class of rapidly rotating bladed spinners. Most often it is a heavy bait and they do not require to cast additional shipping. The weight and streamlined shape allows them to throw 80-100 m or more. That is why they are indispensable when fishing for ASP, which is held usually on the fairway, away from the coast. But not only the fish you can catch with Devon. They are suitable for fishing perch, pike-perch, pike and Chub — all depends on the design of the lure. These lures are made from brass, copper, Nickel, stainless steel, lead.
There are plastic Devon, and composite (plastic and metal). Usually the spinners of this type are fusiform, but there are flat lure, faceted, square, and triangular in cross-section. Its color is very diverse. Usually they are silver or gold, often matte or two-tone. The size of the allowance can be anything, but often use lures in length from 3 cm to 10-12 cm with a width of 2-3. 5 cm Some of these lures and their dimensions are given in the figure below.
Technically correctly fitted Devon has a centered through hole placed in it a core rod, around which occurs the rotation of the spinner. The front end of the rod must be provided with swivel and leash-stabilizer. When snap use 1 or 2 of the tee, but can be applied and other options. Any number of hooks or the shape of the Devon or the diameter of the used fishing line on the game spinner is not affected. His behavior in water depends on the shape, size and position of the blades.
Their size can be almost anything. If Devon is lightweight, hollow or plastic, the blades make small, and their total diameter may be equal to the diameter of the body of Devon. In the case when the spinner is heavy, cast, the total diameter can be quite large and is three and even four times the diameter of the body of Devon. Wider blades hinder rotation, making it as if lazy. Such a “lazy” Devon for catching the fish is not suitable, but it is good to catch pike and perch. Perch indifferent to the speed of rotation of the lure, it is important for its size. Even mater humpback grouper willingly takes the smallest spoon. However, Chub and perch also don’t like big baits.
The intensity of rotation of this lure, except for the area of the blades affect the angle of inclination to the longitudinal axis of the spinner. Usually the blades are angled from 30° to 60°. It is believed that the steeper they are planted, the faster the rotation of the lure. However, there is also another way. Without delving into the hydrodynamic characteristics, we confine ourselves to a statement of facts. Light the Devon to spin faster when they were smaller the blades are hollow, at an angle of 30-45°. Heavy blade Devon rotate faster when placing the blades at an angle of 45-50°, and the bigger the area, the smaller should be the angle.
The optimum angle of 45°, that with this arrangement of blades is most clearly manifests a direct correlation between the rate of reference of the Devon and speed of rotation. Fishing in Devon is particularly successful when fishing for ASP. In angling last the fastest transaction in which a whirling Devon almost glides through the water and drives ahead of the wave. Given the casting distance and the significant weight of the bait, the implementation of such a maneuver requires a certain skill.
All experienced anglers are advised to start podmahivala fishing line before Devon hits the water. This technique is comfortable and that allows you to adjust the range and accuracy of the throw. Keep the same lure on the surface is necessary with movements of the rod. The bite is usually followed at the beginning of the transaction, of course, if the throw was performed correctly and accurately. From the variety of designs it is necessary to allocate three or four Devon. Among the latter the most interesting composite model, in which the head part rotates in one direction and tail in the opposite direction.
However, neither this model nor the three-bladed lure, nor any other modification nor efficiency, nor any other special qualifications from classic Devon is no different. Although there is a perception that Devon, consisting of parts, rotating towards each other, almost not spinning the fishing line. But I will have to disappoint the anglers: the Devon, like all the others, spoils the line as fast as it rotates. Nothing can be done-pleasure requires sacrifice. But what fun it is hunting for Chub! All the pleasures of fun!
