Proper installation of a floating boil

How to mount a floating boilie and remove the “idle” bites? Basic rules to improve the performance of bites.

Novice anglers often encounter the problem of “blank” bites when fishing on boilies. The signaling device shyly peeps, the fishing line stretches slightly, but the long-awaited steam engine is still gone. This situation suggests that there is fish at the feeding point, she is interested in the nozzle, but refuses to bite. Numerous underwater shootings, which can be seen on the Internet, often capture how a carp takes a boil with a hook and spits it out without detecting it. At this time, the fisherman hears that the bite signaling device has tripped and immediately subsided. The reason for this phenomenon is the improper installation of the boil. It would seem that it could be simpler: I drilled a boil, did it with an awl, put a stopper and catch it. But not so simple. The smallest details are important in carp fishing. Proper presentation of the attachment is the key to successful fishing.

We will mount the boil on a leash with a rig-ring. A plum floating boilie with a diameter of 12 mm is used. Hook on the leash of the sixth number. This is the limit value, if the boil was 14, then the hook needs a minimum of the eighth number, 16 boilies need the tenth hook and so on. First, with a drill, make a hole in the boilie.

The drill should be sharp enough, then the drill core comes out in large parts.

A blunt drill can break a boil. Then, the mounting needle is threaded through the hole obtained,

clings to a loop on a leash,

closes and stretches through the boil.

A stopper is placed in the loop and the boil extends towards the stopper.

When installing the boil, it is important to observe the following rules
The length of the hair should be such that the mounted boil is 2-3 mm above the hook, and when it is turned to the point, it touches it.

The boyle should not move through the hair, this is prevented by the loop node located inside it. If the lead material is thin enough and the boilie can move through the hair, then an additional silicone stopper must be placed under it. The position of the ring-ring, in the absence of a silicone tube, must be chosen so that the boil dipped in water is at an angle of about 45 degrees to the hook. Floating boilies need to be kept at a small distance from the bottom. Usually it is 2-2.5 cm. For this purpose, you can put a small lead pellet on a leash. After mounting the boilie, the leash should be lowered into the water and, if necessary, correct the presentation. If everything is done correctly, then the effectiveness of the bites should increase.
