When you need an anchor

Every angler has to set up a boat in the right place. It would seem, what is simpler: tied the "Bulygan" with wire, rope or wrapped it in a net, lowered it into the water - and the boat was at anchor.

Alas, such a primitive anchor serves primitively: it reliably holds the boat in place only in calm weather and with a slow current or even without it. In other cases, a concrete block of any shape will work for you. It is necessary to embed or securely fix a metal clip for a cable, rope, cord into it (see fig. 1).

In order to keep the boat in place in strong winds and on the current, it is often necessary to use pound stones, and sometimes even more weight. It is clear that this inevitably creates great inconvenience.

The weight of a stone, a concrete blank can be significantly reduced if they are fixed in a metal strip with the ends bent to the side. (see 2)... Such anchors, correctly installed at the bottom, are capable of holding the boat in any current. However, these same anchors with bent ends often get stuck tightly in rocky and snaggy places. But among the snags and stones the fish very much loves to hold on. In order to avoid snags in such a situation, an additional rope (cable, cord) is attached to the metal anchor. To do this, a hole is drilled in one of the arms of the anchor, and a cord is threaded through it. If the anchor is hooked, it must be pulled by an additional rope attached to the horn. Practice shows that in the overwhelming majority of cases the anchor is released.

Comfortable clasp

For a quick replacement of spinners when fishing with a spinning rod, you can use a simple device made of a small safety pin. First, you need to saw off or bite off with pliers, pliers, the point on the folding pin of the pin and bend the end, as shown in Figure 3... Then, with a file, you need to cut a hole in the head of the pin. It remains to tie the spinner by the ring - and the fastener is at work.

Original kukan

Every angler, of course, knows how difficult it is to keep the fish caught, especially in the summer heat. And what tricks do anglers use to save their catch. For this purpose, you can successfully use a homemade kukan, which an amateur angler may well make at home. (see figure 4).

Figure 4

However, I must warn you that this original design of the kukan will almost certainly turn out in a "clumsy" version. Why clumsy? This stems from the technology of its manufacture. The fact is that it is almost impossible to manually bend Kucan parts of the same size from steel wire.

Judge for yourself ... Fasteners with loops and hooks are bent from pieces of steel wire 15 centimeters long. The prepared fasteners are put on a ring made of strong wire with loops. The diameter of the ring is 10-15 millimeters. The ends of the wire forming the ring are carefully soldered.

A cord or a thin chain 1.5-2 meters long with a metal rod at the end is attached to the ring to secure the kukan in the shore. The rod can be replaced with a ring that is put on a stake (stick) stuck in the ground. In a caught fish, the end of the fastener pierces the lower jaw, and the fastener is fastened with a hook.

Live bait will last longer

There are a myriad of ways to attach live bait to a hook when fishing with circles. For the most part, each angler, of course, has his own, (in his opinion), the most catchy way. I want to contribute to this diversity with hope: what if, if it is useful to me, can it be used by others?

The live bait is pushed onto the clasp needle soldered to the twin hook. The needle is passed through the fish's mouth under the gill plate, bypassing the gills (in Figure 5 this is shown with a dotted line)... The leash has two ends. One is fixed in the eye of a double hook, the other is equipped with a single or double hook, which is pressed with a rubber ring to the body of the fish and the tail.

Hooks with a fastener are easy to use, making and soldering a fastener to a double is not very difficult. Live bait, planted in this way, remains alive much longer than injured by a puncture of the hook.
