Floats are mainly composed of floating feet, floating body and floating tail. The shapes and materials of these three parts have many changes, resulting in different floating characteristics. Floating body is the source of buoyancy of floating, and the magnitude of buoyancy is mainly determined by floating body. The amount of lead eaten is also related to the self-weight of the floating body, so it is more scientific for the floating to look at the amount of lead eaten without looking at the buoyancy. The materials and shapes of the floating body are also quite diverse, resulting in extremely complicated floating. Floating feet are mainly different in length, thickness and material. Floating feet have great influence on the center of gravity of the float, mainly affecting the sinking and turning speed of the float. The floating tail can be divided into thickness, length and hardness. Today, the main material is to talk about the floating tail. The floating tail can be said to be the source of floating sensitivity.
First, the thin tail is more sensitive than the thick tail.
Fine-tailed floats are widely used in Taiwan fishing, and the sensitivity of fine-tailed floats is higher. This is because the same bait weight is used during drift adjustment, and the length of the fine-tailed floats is larger. Therefore, from this perspective, the fish’s eating movements are the same, and the movement range of fine-tailed floats will be larger. Moreover, the thin tail is easier to be pulled by fish than the thick tail, so from these two angles, the thin tail is more sensitive than the thick tail. However, the purpose of choosing floating is to fish, not sensitivity, which is sometimes not suitable for fish. Secondly, the thin tail float cannot be seen clearly when fishing far away, which is of great importance to fishing. Therefore, the first thing to pay attention to when choosing float is whether the floating tail can be seen clearly. On the basis of seeing clearly, we will talk about the sensitivity.
In traditional fishing, thin-tailed floats are less used and thick-tailed floats are more used for two main reasons. First, traditional fishing uses more long rods, which are often used to catch far away. Such floats can be seen clearly. Secondly, there are many small fish in the wild fishing environment. This kind of float is relatively blunt and can filter and catch small fish mouths. The float phase is often larger fish. Therefore, the floating lead falls to the bottom, the floating uses a thick and soft tail, and the blunt is added to the blunt. Although the floating phase is not too obvious, it is very practical for wild fishing. This kind of float is not suitable for Taiwan fishing. If it is not adjusted to the bottom of the lead pendant, it is not as comfortable as the thin tail float, no matter whether it is baited or empty hook. For example, hanging double baits can only press down one eye, making the drift adjustment very uncertain. However, this kind of float is not useful in the season when the fish mouth is light, and the thin tail float should be used when the fish mouth is light.
Second, the short drift tail is more sensitive than the long drift tail.
Then let’s talk about the length of the floating tail. Here we need a hypothesis. Assuming that the floating tail is the same in thickness and different in length. We know that long-legged and long-tailed floats are usually used to fish in deep water, because long-legged floats sink faster and reach the designated position faster. However, the floating and sinking process of the long tail takes a long time. First of all, it is more suitable for fishing stroke, because it takes a long time to reach the designated position, or the stroke is longer. Moreover, the long tail float will lead to a longer float overall, and the stability of such floats will be better. The so-called stability is actually blunt. As for the performance of the fish mouth, some fish mouth will not be displayed in the long tail float, while the float signals with short tail are very diverse, and floats jump randomly, often appearing on the short tail float.
Generally speaking, the thickness and length of the floating tail are different, and each has its own characteristics and advantages. According to the different fish conditions, choosing the right float will get twice the result with half the effort for fishing. If you like, please pay attention to it and give it a compliment. Update it on time every day. Thank you, fishing friends!
