Casting networks belong to the category of straining gear. The main purpose of the device is to cover individual areas of the reservoir together with the living creatures that live there. Reducing its own area, tackle allows you to drain the fish caught.
Various casting networks differ in the area of the canvas. Factory dimensions can be viewed on the packaging when buying tackle. And these parameters refer to the radius of the net, and not to its diameter.
The casting network contains a special lacing, which provides increased rigidity, taking into account the weight of cargo and potential production. It several times interlace the central cord for casting and serves to strengthen the lower part of the catching device.
To collect the network is a horn, which is a reliable device made of composite materials. This element is connected with the tackle with special glue, which is resistant to moisture. The presence of the horn contributes to a more convenient casting and retrieval of the network.
Another important component is the timber veins that act as a bridge between the cargo cord and rope for casting. During the lifting of the tackle, they allow you to quickly tighten the network, avoiding loss of catch.
If made casting the net with your hands, you should prefer thick progalina of monofilament fishing line. As the Central cord should choose the braided product. Twisted option ineffective. After a few casts on its surface can form loops. Network casting usually contain a thick cord, about 5-6 mm in diameter. This is the most convenient, as it does not hurt the hand.
Principle of fishing
Applying network casting is quite simple. To begin with the tackle is typed on the hand, casting is performed with the coverage of the selected area. After diving to the bottom, the equipment is pulled out onto the surface using a cord fixed to the base.
American casting networks
A distinctive feature of the straining gear of this category is special veins, which tighten the network. Due to their presence a kind of bag is formed in which all possible exits are overlapped by cargoes.
In the design of American networks, polyethylene braided cords for casting with a diameter of 7 mm are used. On the perimeter of the tackle is a rope with loads, which holds the shape of the product and acts simultaneously as a weighting agent.
Casting networks of the Spanish type
Unlike the previous variant, the fish is not tightened by the whole plane of tackle, but remains in special pockets that are located along the entire perimeter of the loaded part. During the pulling out of the net, the weighting agents gather in the center, blocking the way for the catch to escape.
Such casting network conveniently lowered to the bottom of the reservoir, periodically checking the catch. However, most fishermen use various baits, which are placed in the feeders and into the Central part of the tackle.
Catching with casting networks is an extremely exciting activity. Grab enough catch, despite the relatively modest parameters. To perform the correct cast, a small workout is enough. The skills of handling the network are formed quite quickly.
The use of tackle is the best solution when it comes to the immediate extraction of live bait, which will be used to hunt larger, predatory fish. Usually it takes only a few casts to satisfy the need for bait for the whole day.
