A Beginner’s Fishing Float Rod

For quite a long time people prefer floating fishing, because it is an opportunity to be outdoors, talk to nature, relax. However, I do not want to look at the float in vain - it would be necessary to catch something. And if you have certain knowledge and amenities, fishing will be a real pleasure and can even turn into a hobby.

Nowadays, the improvement of rods and various accessories has reached such a level that you can easily achieve success by choosing any water body. A large number of fishermen do not tend to work with fiders and bottoms, stopping once and for all on floating analogues.

For a beginner, the description of floating fishing methods may seem too complicated, but this is only the first impression, very deceptive. One day will be enough to include yourself in the list of fans of fishing, and the fascinating presentation of the material and the ease of its use in practice may interest even hardened housekeeper.

Depending on the conditions under which fishing will take place, the tackle can be divided into several categories:

 ●  For Coastal Fishing;
 ●  In High Currents And For Spot Fishing;
 ●  For Long-Range Long-Range Fishing;
 ●  Universal Model of Float Gear.


Sometimes we may need rods of different kinds, most suitable for a particular water body. Therefore it is necessary to look at each variant of execution in details.

1) Universal Model of Float Tackle

That's what rod and reel combo fishing rod is all about. About universality will tell that huge counts of fishermen who began to fish with this fishing rod.

These rods consist of an average of five parts and a reel holder. Usually the number of pass rings is the same as the number of knees, but recently there have been models with additional rings with the ability to slide, and this has a significant impact on the structure and operation of the tackle. It has a spinning reel, which allows you to easily remove the line from it.

This fishing rod is loved both for the opportunity to throw the bait quite easily and far, and for the convenience of catching near the shore like a fly tackle, and for the lack of concern about the constant new equipment. Having installed a swivel on the main line, the fisherman will be able to easily replace the leashes with hooks.

This float tackle is not disappointing, it has repeatedly received amazing trophies.

2) Coastal Fishing Float Rod

It is quite common to catch in an area close to the shore. In such cases, you should give preference to the good old flywheel. There is no fisherman who has never used it.

Rods of this type are used for a long time. They are characterized by complete absence of pass rings. Who does not know what it is, remember the most popular type of fly rod - bamboo.

Modern advanced materials have made this type of rod not only light, but also very durable. If you catch a large fish, the rod is able to keep it due to the possibility of "system" and "balancing". The rod can reach a length of 8 m using its retractable knees. 5 m is usually enough. Most people prefer to catch with a five-meter marker because the hand is not as stressed.

Easy and quick change of flotation equipment, comfortable transportation will pleasantly surprise the beginner fisherman. The equipment should be prepared in advance, wrapping them at home on separate reels. Already on site you will need to take the most suitable one and fasten it to the connector located at the end of the rod.

The length of the rod directly affects the depth of catch. If you catch with a five-meter mark, you will not be able to reach the bottom of the pit of the same depth, because the float then rests on the top. But it should be noted that pits on the shore are very rare, so this minus can be considered as insignificant.

3) Float Rods for Heavy Currents and Spot Fishing

Float Rods for Heavy Currents and Spot Fishing

There can be a strong current on the pond, a bank overgrown with large plants, and there may be a situation where fishing is possible only at a point - for example, in the windows of a heavily overgrown pond. Here, too, a plug rod should be preferred, although at first glance it may look too clumsy. You need to know its strengths and weaknesses.

The line of such a rod is raised, it does not allow different debris and algae floating on the water, clinging to it. In addition, such a position will keep the tooling at a given place and it will not be demolished to the side.

It is possible to catch successfully under the overhanging trees, because there is no need to lift the rod. Thanks to the nature of the throwing snap-in, it will be delivered directly to the specified point. Speaking frankly, there is no casting in the strict sense of the word here at all - the equipment is simply taken to the chosen place.

The length of the rod can be adjusted, removing its knee if desired - this is also an undoubted plus. And the rubber shock absorber will smooth out jerks of the caught fish that will allow to supply the rod with the most thinnest snap-ins.

Among the disadvantages is the length of the rod, limiting the range of catch, and the need to constantly have at hand a number of additional devices - for example, stands and rollers.

4) Float Rod for Long-Range Fishing

Float Rod for Long-Range Fishing

Probably, many fans of fishing, seeing far away frolicking fish, dreamed of a boat or rod more authentic. Especially for such cases, the British developed a model of a special kind, which is a three-four-knee rod, equipped with a coil, a fishing line and other specifically tailored accessories.

This model was assigned the name "match rod". Its rod is equipped with small pass rings, the number of about fifteen, which will not allow a situation when a wet line will stick to the form. Match reel, containing a few shallow spare spools and has an increased gear ratio, a special weighted line with the ability to quickly dive, as well as a float, made specifically for distant throws, with "waglers" - with its own load - that's all the main features of this kind of rod.

In order for this species to show all its best qualities, it is necessary to have a certain space behind the fisherman, allowing to make throws "from behind", the absence of a current or its weak features. After the line is thrown, it will sink - so it will avoid unnecessary interaction with the wind and waves. The tip of the form, lowered into the water, tightens the line, providing the opportunity to make an effective cutting.

The advantages of this type include long range and the ability to replace the bottom with it. And among the disadvantages of difficult fishing in the presence of the current and a number of components of a special type, suitable only for this tackle, which are also worth a lot.
