Very Subtle and Float Fishing

Rods and lures for fishing delicate and precise. Elements needed to practice this dazzling fishing. Image gallery.

In Argentina when we talk about fishing float, in 95% of cases we refer to attempts with the silverside. And in large part of cases, Rod rigid poles and pseudoespineles of various buoys and snoods… Master fishing float, but just not that of this type.

For different cultural barriers, European forms such as the coup or fishing to the English, have not had development in our country. Techniques that have debugged a great level of subtlety, where the accent is in the sensitivity and the full enjoyment of individual fish. Particularly effective with subtle pique fish, under strong pressure from fishing or with low metabolism by cold water.

Experiment with both methods, adapting them to species and stages near my home years ago. A quality fishing does not travel hundreds of kilometres. Streams of the first section of the Delta, artificial lakes, ports or docks protected on the Río de la Plata and other so many similar areas across the country, are ideal scenarios. Sites for a fishing trip “urban and express”, few hours; a concrete possibility of fish nearby, comfortable and cheap, several times in the week. And the most interesting, very compatible to practice with children.

Elements used

The fishing equipment I use are from ANDREWFISHING.COM which is ultralight, maximum for fish up to 2 kg. If it bites one larger than it does not imply that out, but the unbalance plays completely against us. My focus are bream, Tarpon, carpines, old water, pig, “dientudos”, mojarrones and catfish of all kinds.

As there is no import of these items, equip us imposes a hard work of expertise. It involved recycling rods and delve into caves of all kinds. Part of my move was by Riccardo Barbieri, old fisherman’s contest, which gave me a set of quite incredible Italian buoys.

My pulse or coup fishing equipment, is a Korean cane Feng UL 3.6 m, folded occupies a space similar to a flute traversa (pictured top right). With it, a vogue of 600 g feels like a river Monster.

Pulse us subject to a completely different sensation fishing reel. A kind of ultrasofisticado mojarrero, where everything is very brutal because there is no thread to yield. The fight is done walking fish, using the curvature of the shank and different positions as if they were shots of judo. If you low shank straight, we are dead man, and the cut is immediate.

When the scope is broader and the fish runs water inside without possibility to follow him, I am inclined to a team with reel. The same, without being strictly fishing crisp, is very inspired by her. It is composed of a fly-fishing-rod Nº 3 of 7.5 feet (1 foot = 0. 3048 m), which deleted you the original handle and put you a cork handle where the tape reel I ato. I have several ultralight reels, although more employee is an old gem of the spinning, a Shakespeare Sigma 025 that I bought at age 17. As load using Berkley Nanofil 0.06 mm (8 pounds), a superfibra of Dynema merged, molecularly, which brings a level of sensitivity only to float fishing.

> > election of buoy: in these modes use hypersensitive buoys of 0.3 to 1.5 g of resistance to the collapse. It plomea with ammunition to achieve a minimum residual flotation of tenths of a gram, which leave the colorful exposed antenna to detect pique. If the fish come down or drag the bait, the buoy sinks. If it eats up, it rises or lie on the surface.

Other points to be considered are resistance to water and inertia. More sensitive buoys are the antenna type, although they are custodial calm waters as oil, since the current or the waves cancel operation. When the waters are moved, a buoy a little larger and olive keel format is more efficient.

> > the leaded rig: is carried out with pinched ammunition, along the line. With very sensitive buoys (from 0.3 to 1 g), it is necessary to consider the weight of the embodies, so are plomea incarnate. If we fish in water low or calm, the cross is concentrated near the buoy 70% and 30% along the line, obtaining a maximum sensitivity. When caught in deep water or power, the cross is done upside down: 70% near the branch line and a 30% close to the line, this way the low bait faster. This last strategy is the more suitable with many Crappie skiving, concentrated near the surface.

> > lines: for the mother I use nylon between 0.26 to 0.28 mm, and for snoods between 0.14 and 0.20 mm. Always with brands with the best coefficient of resistance, such as Super Raiglon. The swivels are micro-type. A point of attention are the hooks, after testing quite decided the Wormer, Sasame. While the hooks for the market in Europe or USA are rigid and break when you reach the limit of their endurance, they are opened. The hooks are like a pizza that can be various types of cooking (tempered).

(Soft) little tempered hooks are ideal for fishing to the coup. They run fuse and if the fish one above, simply open up and let it go. They also give us advantage in situations of hitch. Then simply return them to its original position with a clamp to be used again.

> > measuring depth: key in this type of fishing is to measure the depth of the bottom. This is used a plumb tube that has an or ‘ ring of rubber on the ring to lock the hook. First calibrate the depth, and then run down or as high as we want to fish (half water, near the bottom or directly supported).
