Fishing with microgy

Fishing is so versatile and vast that to master all its directions one person is unrealistic. And it’s not even the fact that some types of fishing are interesting and others are not.

Sometimes, for the application of certain theoretical knowledge is simply not enough time and money. Not to be sprayed, it is necessary to choose those types of fishing, from which they receive the most pleasure. For me it’s feeder fishing and microgy.

This article focuses on such an interesting direction in fishing as microgy.

What is microdis?

As you can see, this word can be divided into two parts: “micro” and “jig”. The first part of the word says about belonging to the subspecies MICRODIA jig fishing. The second part of the word is the base or Foundation, as it means the whole direction in spinning fishing. If you ask, where did the word “jig”, it most likely will be a version of the origin of the English word “jig”.

This word means a form of Irish folk dancing. Rather, it is associative, the behavior of baits under dash wiring jig resembles the movement of dancers performing this Irish dance.

Microgy is a subspecies spinning fishing which makes use of:

  1. specialized tackle: the spinning of a small test coil with certain characteristics desired diameter fishing line, artificial bait of small size;
  2. a certain the technique of artificial lures that mimic the behavior of natural live food fish.

Let’s briefly consider how the above components of MICRODIA.

Spinning for perch on microgy

As rods for MICRODIA used spinning rods with a length of from 1.5 to 2.7 meters with test range of up to 5 – 6 g. As a rule, these lightweight carbon-fiber rods have a fast and medium-fast action. From the point of view of manufacturing technology and design of the rod can be made of the same material and fused to the glass fiber tip. The latter are highly specialized rods, “sharpened” under MJ.

Another distinctive feature of spinning to MICRODIA is the presence of spaced handles, which positively affects the weight of the rod and its ergonomics.

The main characteristic when choosing a spinning reel for MICRODIA is its sensitivity. For the angler that uses the spinning, should be provided with the following components: control over the artificial bait, the indication of bites, the light weight of the rod the necessary strength and reliability.


Features fishing with specific types of lures will be covered in separate articles. However, you can share your preferences here. Most often I catch on twisters and vibrohvost firms such as Mann’s and Relax. My favorite catchability color lures to MICRODIA: white, mother of pearl, red-white and brown-lilac.


It is difficult to define what a specialized coil for MICRODIA. Most likely, this individual term does not exist. For these purposes, you can use any spinning reel with the following parameters:

  • instant brake-reverse;
  • screw (endless screw) to ensure proper installation of a scaffold;
  • the coating on the roller line bale and the edge of the spool to apply braids;
  • the gear ratio is not more than 5.1:1;
  • size of the spool (Shimano) to 2000;
  • small weight to balance gear;
  • ease of movement for vymatyvanii;
  • the lack of backlash in the units and others.

If to speak about my equipment, I use coil models and Excia Zauber manufactured by Ryobi. In my opinion, the reel middle price category have an optimal ratio of price and quality.

Fishing line for fishing on microjy

In microgage use either braided line (network, cable) with a diameter not exceeding 0.08 mm or of a conventional monofilament fishing line bright colors with a diameter of 0,14 mm.

In my opinion, it is preferable to use the braided line because of its minimal stretch. This important property allows a better control of the bait during posting and biting fish. At the same time, to achieve such opportunities when using monofilament line will not work because of its stretchability up to 20% of the initial length.

The last couple of years as a scaffold for MICRODIA cord I use Super PE (6lb diameter and breaking load of 3 kg.) production company Sunline. If we talk about the color, the optimum braid white color due to its visibility.

Installation of equipment for MICRODIA

For the installation of bait in Microdrive it is possible to use jig heads of various shapes or a hinge Assembly, comprising sinkers “ushastik” which is connected to a hook. It is possible to use not only single hook, but the twins or tees. For fishing in waters with snags is desirable to use a hinge Assembly with offset hooks.

On their fishing trips I use different versions of montages, based on the conditions of fishing. However, in my opinion, the bait on the hinge mounting is playing better.

For connection of the leash with a hook used nodes “grinder” and “Palomar”.

The use of leashes in Microdrive

For catching wary fish in clear water I use fluorocarbon leashes with a diameter of 0.22 mm and a length of 20 – 30 cm.

In addition to the properties of low-visibility, fluorocarbon has a higher resistance to mechanical damage than monofilament fishing line or cord. For this reason, the probability of a slice of a leash pike or damage to the shell is reduced.

It should be noted that it is desirable to use fluorocarbon line, and not an imitation of nylon fishing line with fluorocarbon coating.

For connection of the leash with the main line, I use either the node “carrot” or a counter-node.

Microjava posting

There are a variety of posting types of artificial lures to mimic the behavior of live food fish in their natural habitat. Microdrive the main transactions are: speed, jerk the method of drawing and uniform. All other options, in my opinion, this is a modification of these types of transactions. On their fishing trips mainly use jerk and speed of the transaction.

As can be seen from an article in a fishing microjy there is a lot of its features and secrets that cannot be covered in one article. So we will return to this subject in the pages of the blog. As they say: “the Road will overcome the walking”.
