Feeder snap-in is the main component of the feeder rod that allows the angler to record even the slightest touch of fish to the bait. The right equipment promotes complementary feeding feeder fish at the point of fishing, the implementation of undercuts and ease of playing of captured specimens.
Popular types of feeder snap-ins
To date, the types of feeder snap-ins very much, but not all of them are effective and wide spread among the fishermen received only a few of them, this is the kind of gear:
- The most popular feeder is a snap – paternoster. Is considered the most reliable and popular accessories among the fans to catch on the feeder rod.
- No less popular is and loop Gardner, which is different from the rest simplicity of manufacture and mounting, but inferior to the sensitivity of the asymmetric loop.
- Asymmetrical loop tackle with great sensitivity. It is used primarily on a strong current as it allows you to avoid tightening the leash around the main fishing line.
- The symmetric loop is not inferior to the sensitivity of the previous snap, but it is used on still water or very low flow.
- Feeder tackle the helicopter is an improved and modernized form of paternoster. A feature of the installation is mounting the trough at the end of the main fishing line and slip the leash above her. Excels when fishing for when the fish are not too active.
- Equipment for feeder with protivoparazitarian. A feature of the installation is fastening the trough into the tube, through which pass the main line. But the presence of a large number of additional elements prevents to catching cautious fish.
- Harvester. It is a symbiosis tackle with protivoparazitarian and paternoster. Only here the feeder is attached to the tube using a piece of fishing line. If you get caught you will lose one feeder, and other components will remain intact.
- Feeder snap-in inline. The feeder slides on the main fishing line because it is fixed only on the carbine. Moving points are usually recorded with a special stopper. By the end of the main fishing line attach the leash.
Paternoster (snap-in feeder Gardner)
Loop Gardner is considered one of the most versatile and simple feeder snap-ins. If you know how to knit basic fishing knots, to make paternoster a few minutes. The simplicity of this tackle is that it is done only on the segment of the main fishing line and using additional nodes. Importantly do not forget to wet them before tightening.
You first need to make a small loop on the end of a braided line or regular line. This loop will then be tied leash with hooks. Then back off from this loop of approximately 15 centimeters and make another one. The size of this loop depends on how you prefer to mount the feeder to the mold. If you are going to mount the bird feeder “loop the loop” then you need to do more size, but if directly through the swivel with a carabiner, it will be small enough loops.
All, now we just need to fix the feeder and feeder snap-in paternoster ready to test in a real fishing.
Asymmetric and symmetric loop feeder
The whole fabrication process is to separately manufacture a loop system and consolidate leads from the feeder with special latches. In order to tie an asymmetric loop, it is necessary to take a piece of twine, a length of about 1.5 meters and a diameter of about 0.4 mm. below the Main line had a high rigidity.
Cooked cut the fishing line is folded in half, one side is longer than the other 10 cm. first we need to make a loop to snap the leash to the main line using a double knot. Then you need to make the most difficult, you need to mount the outlet on the leash so that he always remained direct and were tough enough. This is to ensure that the leash does not rabovladelcheskim with the main line.
After that you need to take a cut of double the line and make it into a long strand about 15 inches, twist need to finish with a double knot. You then need to thread the swivel on the long section of the line. Now we just need to measure out the required length of the loop and tighten the knot. On average, the longest side must be approximately 50 cm and 40 cm
Snap-in feeder with a symmetrical loop is exactly the same, only both sides are the same length. You must then bind to the end of the rope, the swivel, for which it will be attached to the main fishing line. It is very good to trim the ends of the line.
Feeder tackle helicopter
To make feeder rig helicopter is quite simple and fast. First, you need to put on the line toporok, swivel with carabiner which is then attached a leash and sleeve. At the end of a scaffold it is necessary to mount the fastener to which it will be attached trough.
Then you need to wear a tight sleeve on one of the lugs of the swivel. The feeder is usually mounted at a distance of about 20 cm from the leash, some anglers try to make the distance not more than 5 cm the Main thing that the stoppers did not move spontaneously and very firmly sitting in the same position.
Feeder snap protivoparazitarian
One of the simplest and most common is the snap-in feeder with protivoparazitarian. Long part of the tube is turned to make the leash to minimize the possibility of overlap of the leash.
For installation, you need to put a tube on the main line and lock it from one side with beads, and with another swivel. Then it is necessary to mount the leash to the swivel.
Feeder tackle harvester
The basis of this snap-in also is the use of the tube-protivotankovaya. Only it has one feature, the swivel in the middle of the tube tie a loop about 10 cm in length. And to this loop is attached to the trough. Such gear can be quite diverse, fishermen are constantly experimenting using different tubes and changing the length of loops. Through the tube is passed the main fishing line which is fixed with cambrica.
Snap-in feeder inline (in-line)
This type of feeder provides for snap-in mounting bird feeders to the main line in a stationary or movable condition. To the main fishing line is attached to the swivel and stopper, and at its end is fastened the loop for further attachment of the leash. The feeder is attached to a fishing line directly using the rifle. Some prefer to do the bird feeder fixed with additional stoppers.
It is by such snap make acclaimed among fans karpovoj catching snap-in type “method”. Through it passed the line, put stepanki and knit a loop for a leash. On the pond and a feeder filled with groundbait and insert it in the hook.
Feeder snap-in for current
If you catch a feeder on the river, then not only that you need to know how to keep the feeder at the tame point, so still need to choose the right tackle. Today, the choice of gear is very large, but only used some of them, it’s a paternoster, asymmetric and symmetric loop, and a helicopter and harvester.
Many have repeatedly raised the question about which gear is better to catch the flow? The unequivocal answer is not present, all depends on many factors, but General advice should be considered, that’s what we’ll do.
There are many tips on how to keep the feeder the feeder to tame the point, we all will not talk and will only mention the main rules that are required to know every self-respecting fisherman:
- You need to use the line as a smaller diameter;
- The weight feeders should be selected in accordance with the flow rate, as well as its form;
- The rod must be positioned as high as possible to reduce the contact of the line with water.
From a selection of snap-in retention of the cargo at the bottom is almost independent, but on the frequency of tangling the leashes she does. This indicator is also influenced by balancing. If you install too heavy feeders you will not be able to strike a careful fish, the same situation will happen with the sinker. But when you use light sinkers tackle can just wash off to the side. That is to choose the weight of equipment need to take the average value, so that it is not washed away, but also not to scare away the fish.
A mistake many novice anglers is the neglect of the balancing gear. Indeed, at first glance it seems a trifle, but it’s not. Choosing the goods the optimal weights under the current speed you will achieve maximum effect from the gear.
Paternoster for current
Last time feeder snap-in paternoster has become the most popular and reliable of all the snap-ins. This snap-in can to some extent be called universal, as it is used in various fishing conditions, including on the course and in stagnant water.
The advantages of such a mounting lies in the simplicity of production and very low probability of tangling the leash. Many anglers using paternoster once, do not use other types of gear. Some knit it on a conventional line, others on the network, and the third is on solidere.
Deficiencies occur only when using short leashes, they start to get confused. If it becomes necessary to use short leashes, it is best to bow to the mounting of asymmetric and symmetric loop.
Feeder tackle for catching in stagnant water
Fish in still water it is sometimes more difficult than the current, here the main difficulty lies in luring the swarms of fish to a snap. The key factor in this fishing is the correct choice places. It is recommended to choose different anomalies on the bottom (preferably a hole) and then proceed to their skarmlivanii.
Look for holes on the bottom using a marker float or the rod. As soon as the place of fishing it is necessary to fix the fishing line with a stop knot or clip and proceed to the bait. The main thing is constantly to throw the bait at one point.
When feeder fishing in still water, chaga is used for feeder snap-symmetrical loop, a little less of paternoster. The weight of the trough is taken about 30-40 grams, and the shape is preferably square or pear-shaped.
