Disguise of fixed gear
Disguise of fixed gear in summer and winter. Probably, every fisherman had to deal with the problem of maintaining his fixed gear from ruin and abduction. The onlookers, idly staggering along the banks and embankments of rivers flowing in the city, are trying to ruin and ruin the tackle. They often cannot indifferently go past the equipment installed on the shore, if the fisherman is either taking a nap nearby or has gone off somewhere on his business literally for a couple of minutes. When he returns, he may find that someone’s cunning hand has already passed through his parking lot and gear.
No less worrying is the vacationer, who rent boats and hang out on them in all directions with noise and din, throwing garbage overboard and managing to pull out the poles of zerglas for some reason. It is completely impossible to explain these actions with any logic and common sense. It would be okay to simply pull out poles, although here it is not clear – why? But it happens that with a flyer-lantern attached to the top of the pole, they are pulled out of the bottom and thrown into the water. Where is the meaning and at least some explanation for these actions? Therefore, in recent years I try not to catch live bait gear in the city, although there are plenty of pikes in the city river. If I arrange the summer zergelis, then for a short time in the morning dawn. And now I never leave the poles of the girders stuck in the bottom, but I pull them out and hide them in the willow bushes.
In winter, the tackle of anglers leaving their necklaces for the night on ice plateaus has also recently been invaded by dishonest people. Only in these raids are no longer idly staggering onlookers who cannot be lured into the frosty ice desert and even at night, and people who are quite prepared to steal zergirls are purposefully removing their gear for their needs or just to give them later for a bottle of moonshine or fake alcohol.
In winter, it is relatively simple to disguise zergolnits, keeping bait fish on tackle and, if necessary, in working form, that is, with the possibility of catching a predator on tackle in a modified form. Which one? If on the ice are left ventricles of a classical form, then it is, of course, more difficult to hide them. Given that both homemade gear and factory gear are made according to the scheme – stand, stand with coil, flag on the spring – it is impossible to close them with snow. The snow tubercle will be too high, which is also suspicious and striking. All that remains is to close the hole with the stand with the fishing line passed through the hole and the live bait on the hook, lowered in advance under the ice. The checkbox will have to be removed and put together with the stand on the stand. Then you need to clear two free fishing lines for a meter and put them also on the stand in the form of rings, and then wrap the fishing line a couple of times around the stand, reliably fixing it in this form. Tackle should be covered with fresh fluffy snow, but not wet. A zherilka left in this form will be suitable for night fishing for burbot, but the live bait should be lowered to the bottom. At least, if he doesn’t take the burbot, then the bait fish will be preserved for morning fishing better than in a cane or in a mesh container lowered under the ice.
More functional and universal are the vents without a coil, which is replaced by a plastic reel, where the equipment is located and at the same time is a flag from the other end. After daytime fishing, the reel is unfastened from the mounts of the vents and lowered under the ice on the cross member laid on the hole. Then the hole is closed with a stand and covered with snow.
In the summer, I got accustomed to arranging secretive ventricles, which, by the nature of the functional, are more like some kind of donks. Tackle is set as follows. First, from a peg disguised in grass, sedge or in bushes, a thick fishing line is laid out along the bottom, naturally from a boat. Since the zerkla must be installed in a good place near the grass, the line is drawn over the strip of coastal water lilies and the equipment itself falls to the bottom at its edge, where an undergrowth and a leash with a hook are tied behind a sliding sinker. A leash with live bait is held above the bottom by a float, a twig and another sinker. The scheme is complex, but effective and secretive. Of course, you could put it on the bottom just loaded with a leash and bait, but on the lake at the bottom there is a lot of moss and vegetation. Therefore, it is necessary to raise live bait above the bottom.
