Hooks for tackle
Fishing tackle without hook — it’s just a fun trinket. The rod, reel, line, and sinker, and float are needed only in order for it to better fulfill its mission. There are, however, two or three ways of fishing fish without it, but it is rather a curious exception. The hook performs several functions. First, it is necessary to catch the fish and to deprive it of the possibility to be during playing. Second, the hook serves to hold the nozzle. Thirdly, in terms of angling, it can serve as a sinker, bait or both.
And so on the characteristics. All hooks are divided into three groups:
1. Odnorodnye single hooks.
2. Dochodzenie doubles, or double hooks.
3. Trechodine tees, anchor, or triple hooks.
Modern hooks are made mostly of hardened steel, but can be used and other metals and alloys. Hooks may vary in size, width, thickness, bending a particular part, the color, the presence or absence of those or other elements. However, the device is in all cases one and the same. To the angler it easier to understand the variety of sizes (the width of the hook), there is a corresponding numbering. In addition, depending on the properties of the metal from which made the hook of the balance of its rooms to the thickness and length of the forearm all the hooks can be divided into six conditional classes.
Classification of fishing hooks
Classification of fishing hooks for gear:
1. Universal — these hooks are most suitable equipment for spinning rods;
2. Mushin — they are most often used while fly fishing;
3. Sports — hooks is recognized as the most efficient;
4. Ultrasparciii — used only for sport fishing;
5. Sea — specially designed for fishing in salt water, however, can be successfully used for fishing in fresh water;
6. Special — used when fishing various gear and methods. In addition to the size and other characteristics, anglers are still interested in the quality hooks. Most production industrial manufacturing meets the highest requirements. But still before buying make sure your check them out. Good-quality products when extension or flexion of the springs, and only when the load exceeds a certain limit, the hook either breaks or is bent.
Break — perekladnyh and unbent — neocolony. But if these hooks are very much necessary to rectify the lack of them is quite simple. It is very fragile, the product should be placed in a tin can filled with clean fine sand, and very hot. When the hook start to change colour and become slightly blue, its cool. Too soft can be tempered: first, it is heated on the fire until red, and then immediately dipped in cool engine oil. By the way, soft or fragile hooks may be needed when fishing among snags. When you hook these hooks are bent or broken, and the gear remains intact.
Sharpness test on the nail or cutting a finger. If only light pressure tip does not slip on the nail, and gets stuck in it, and if it seems to stick the tip to the finger, the sharpening is excellent. And most likely done with a laser, and then fixed with a special chemical treatment. Usually sharpened in this way the hooks are blunt, they have only bent the tip of the stinger. But this defect is easily stored with the help of any solid and thin enough object (such as needles). Among such products are extremely rare blunt and sharpen them with a whetstone, diamond, impossible.
The quality of the hook on the line associated with the shape of the tip. The correct or ideal soldering iron tip has a conical (large hooks it’s ribbed) form, with length 3-5 times greater than the thickness of the hook. Their heads are very different. Hooks with a shovel more subtle and better disguised, but it is difficult to knit them to the wire (especially the smaller hooks — the thin leashes), hooks with a ring or swivel look a little rougher, but kept on the line is still more reliable and they can be fastened steel line. Hooks bent inside the head and slightly elongated fore very handy when fly fishing in streams. Correctly tied, they are under the action of the flow is nearly horizontal and the line does not interfere with the fish grab the nozzle. When hooking, the hook twists and reliably pierces the fish’s mouth. Practice proved, zatsepistost (catching capacity) of hooks depends on their shape. Studies have shown that the standard product, the sting and goatee which is directed parallel to the forearm, has a low efficiency due to high frequency of gatherings, especially when fishing for pike, ASP.
It was concluded that the hook, with the tip pointing towards the ear, better zatsepistost. After testing hooks with different forms of this hunch was confirmed. The catching capacity of the hook shown in the figure has grown to 50 — 60 %. Now more and more gaining popularity hooks round shape, ulovistost superior to the traditional about three times. The secret is that this form is almost completely excludes gatherings of fish. The rounded hooks are not called when playing spots.
There are analogues of barbless or, on the contrary, with two, three and even five barbs. Strictly speaking, the “bearded” hooks have one real beard, and everyone else is notches located on the shank. These hooks are called cyprinids, they perfectly hold any bait and the nozzle and, in spite of their massiveness, they are very convenient for angling carp, tench, big carp, IDE and Chub. But the products without the barbs do not enjoy widespread demand for use in anglers. But in vain, they are sharp, zatsepistye, they are easy to remove fish, one problem, the nozzle is removed from the fish. Double and treble hooks are usually used for the fishing of predatory fish. Twins are often used for zhivcova tackleand treble hooks equipped with lures. Sometimes small (often different sizes) counterparts and tees are very comfortable for fishing fly fishing and when fishing for big carps fish. Sharp and polished the hooks must be stored and transported in a special box with foam cushion for impaling hooks. Very often sharpened during fishing they rust. To rid the hook from rust you can, ramming it into a bar of soap. In 2-3 hours it is completely clean.
