Chafer beetle is the main bait for catching chub, ide and asp. There is a chafer and non-chubby beetle. Khrushchev is similar to non-sniffing, but much larger (up to 3 cm long) and has reddish-brown elytra, while non-sniffing is light coffee.
Bait and attachment for fishing in field and field conditions, beetles, larvae, bloodworms, worms, caterpillars and others.
Khrushchev flies in May, non-Khrushchev in June. Both pests eating leaves of bushes and trees (birch, young linden, oak, as well as soft, juicy needles of young pine shoots). A lot of bugs fly out in one summer, fewer in another, and very few in the third, depending on the number of surviving larvae. The mass flight of beetles depends on the weather. On warm evenings there are many, on cold, rainy and damp there are none at all or very few.
. You can catch them in the morning in flight or collect them on trees and flowers. Day and evening, there are especially a lot of them on the flowers of white rosans and rose hips. It is not recommended to store them in the sun.
Dragonfly and its larva as a bait for fishing.
Excellent bait. Unfortunately, catching a dragonfly is rare and random. Despite the seeming carelessness, it is very difficult to catch, even in places where dragonflies fly (coastal reeds and wet swamps with reeds). It must be caught early in the morning. Dragonflies are mounted on a hook with an extended forearm for the thickened part of the body. It is good to catch fish that lives in coastal thickets of water-loving plants on the dragonfly larva. They live in the underwater parts of plants and at the bottom of standing or with a small flow of water bodies. Collect them with a small-mesh net, guiding them along the underwater parts of coastal herbs, store them in a jar of water, occasionally changing the water. Attach to the hook with a short fore-end. Skip the hook from the head and hide the larvae in the abdomen..
Grasshopper as a bait for fishing.
A good attachment for fly fishing and wiring. They appear in abundance in the summer. It is most convenient to catch them in the morning, before and after sunrise, with a net when the insects are inactive after night hibernation: wings wet from dew do not allow them to fly for a long time. Their hind legs are torn off and one on the hook.
Butterflies as bait for fishing.
Bait, which by no means should be neglected, although it does not rest firmly on the hook. Butterflies with a light or variegated color (cabbage, apple honey and others) are good as a fly fishing nozzle. They are mounted on hooks, small by several pieces, piercing them across the body in the upper thickened part. There are still small butterflies of spring grass appearing in early spring near flowing reservoirs. They are light gray in color, with transparent wings folding on their backs. They can be typed among stones and old vegetation near the water itself. Set spring grass several pieces on the smallest hooks.
Gadfly as a bait for fishing.
Very tenacious on the hook. You can catch plenty of gadgets on a hot day.
Bloodworm as a bait for fishing.
This is the larva of the pusher mosquito, it is red. It is found in a thick layer of silt, in ponds, old rivers, overgrown lakes, in quiet river backwaters. They get bloodworms from sludge by washing. Mosquito larvae are small, reaching only 2-2.5 cm in length and thinner than a match. They are saved as follows: they are spread in a thin layer on a damp cloth, wrapped in an envelope and placed in a dark, cool place. To preserve bloodworms for several days, it is mixed with squeezed tea leaves. The emerging mold is immediately removed, a fresh portion of the tea leaves is added and mixed again, kept in a stainless dish with a trellised lid, a nylon stocking or a canvas bag. Put the bloodworm on the hook very carefully, otherwise all its contents will leak.
Caddis flies (shitik) as bait for fishing.
In the water, near the riverbank, you can see objects similar to particles of decaying twigs that move, rotate or oscillate slightly. This is the shitik of the larva of gray-brown moths that live near the coasts of water bodies. The caddis is put on a small hook through the head with the conclusion of the sting near the tail. Catch on a larva with a fishing rod in a quiet stream mainly in the wiring. Store moist in a cool place..
Worms as bait for fishing.
Mines from earthworms can be allowed to mature for half a day. The peeled worm keeps on the hook better, acquires a red color, becomes more attractive to fish. Store in a cool place, not allowing them to curl in balls. This nozzle should be protected from warming in the sun and getting wet in the rain, stored in the shade or in a shelter.
Caterpillars as bait for fishing.
These are the larvae of butterflies that live everywhere near ponds. Caterpillars of urticaria sit in caps on the stems and leaves of the nettle. They bait on hooks so as to close the entire hook, hiding the sting. Do this carefully so as not to crush the caterpillar. The caterpillars are kept in a sealed container with the leaves from which they were removed.
Seashells as bait for fishing.
The contents of the shell are used for bottom and float fishing rods. The hook tip is hidden in the soft mass of clam meat. Collected shells are stored for a long time if placed in a net and lowered into water.
Crayfish as bait for fishing.
Crayfish meat (crayfish neck) is an excellent attachment for catching tench, large perch, common carp, ide, catfish, pike, chub. Crayfish are caught by ruchene, which is a round mesh with a metal rim. Fish, frog or meat are tied to a net. The ravine is lowered at the bottom from a steep bank on a long pole or from a boat. Crayfish are mined by hand. At night in the coastal strip they can be found among rare algae, illuminating the bottom with a flashlight. During the day among the steep, washed shores, burrows are searched and crayfish are pulled out from there by hand. Keep crayfish by shifting them with wet moss or hard algae, protecting from the sun and light.
Small crayfish are entirely baited onto a dark hook through the eye into the neck, hiding the sting, large ones are torn to pieces, separating the neck and claws. They exempt from the shell as well as boiled ones. Claws and necks bait on a hook shifting on a fore-end and hiding a sting. Before casting, the hook with the meat must be held for 20-30 seconds in the water, it hardens and keeps on the hook better. You can tie the neck to the hook with a white thread. Fishing with this bait should be at the steep washed banks, and on the lakes in the windows of algae. The best bite is observed with the sunset and all night until sunrise.
