For catching of predatory fish species: pike, perch, Zander, catfish, Chub, etc. recommend to use a Seine with automatic cutting. The Seine is a nylon cord of length 20. 25 meters ( the thickness of the cord about 2 mm ), which after 1.5. 2 meters are leashes with hooks.
All feature the Seine is to use a so-called float leash. Structurally, this element is made as follows:
– solid polyfoam cylinder is turned, the so-called float, length 70. 80 mm and diameter 15. 20 mm, drilled along the axis of the hole for the cord. The size of the opening such that the cord of the Seine was held very loosely.
– we make the leash consisting of Cordoba cord, on the end with a metal leash hook. Near the metal leash hang a small sinker for the transaction of bait in depth. On cord cord drawn through two holes of a small plastic triangle, its function of locking depth wiring the bait. Continue reading
About two thousand species of catfish inhabit the fresh water of the world. This is one of the most ancient fishes of the planet, their fossil remains discovered in sediments of the late Cretaceous period (70 million years ago).
One of the main signs is the lack of scales, often replaced by bone plates. Catfish are benthic nocturnal or crepuscular lifestyle. Among them are predators, but most species prefer detritus, vegetable foods, and benthic invertebrates. Aquarists contain up to 800 kgs, not including hybrid forms. Content are suitable for normal aquarium conditions: the stiffness of 6-12°, the temperature 22 to 26 °C. the acidity is neutral, with small deviations in one direction or another. Thanks to the cutaneous respiration, or the ability to breathe atmospheric air, most catfish are not picky to oxygen mode. Hoplosternum, for example, swallow the air, he popadat in the intestine and absorbed into the bloodstream through the dense network of capillaries. Continue reading
I still remember how in the childhood went with his parents to the zoo. I admired all the animals and I could stand for half an hour about cells. Very much I liked to observe the life of fauna. But the most loved were the cages with the lions(maybe it has something to do with the sign of the zodiac under which I was born) I. oddly enough, the fish tanks. I, as if spellbound, “stuck” to the cold glass and watched them non-separable.
And look at what it was. Large and small, of all colors and plain, sea and river… it seemed to Me then that fish is also looking at me. And that they somehow like it, I smiled and built “faces”. And after visiting the zoo constantly pestered to their parents: “Daddy, let’s buy home lion!”. The parents smiled and said in response: “Daughter, it is Grand and it will be quite cramped in our apartment.” I’m not lost: “And we’ll buy a small, pocket-lion!”. Poupesheva about 5 minutes and realizing that everything is useless, I switched to “villenkolonie” fish. “Well, at least one of gold and small-prés-a small aquarium”. Continue reading
