Glisser – amphibian bait

Bait Glisser How many things happened before the eyes of the fisherman. Summer. Heat. There is no bite on the lake or the river bay. But in a continuous carpet of water lilies, which is at the gently sloping shore – a blow after the blow, a splash behind the splash. A good pike is under the water lilies and take it by spinning well in any way.

Or another situation. A small pond, overgrown with nettles, and on top – covered with solid duckweed. It can be seen that the pike chases a trifle in a narrow gap of clean water between nettle and duckweed. But there even throw a spinning scary – swamp! For these situations, a bait of the type “Glisser” was created.

The essence of Glisser type baits or a very close Croatian egg is very simple. The sinker is mounted in the right-hand body in such a way that the single hook looks up all the time and passes any hooks. Whatever the watercraft would fall on the water, it still crochets upwards, thanks to its geometry and weight. Its name is “glider”, the bait has earned for the characteristic “whiskers”, which it leaves on the water when posting. Just like a boat, when it glides – that is, the nose is raised, and a solid wave diverges from the sides.

Glisser can be conducted on a frank carpet of algae; Over the fields of water lilies; Among the inflorescences of algae, sticking out on the surface; On rare reeds, reeds, cattails.

On hook Hlisser or Croatian egg is very useful to install a twister. And in particularly malicious thickets, the twister is put on as an offset hook to cover the sting of the hook.

The wiring of the glider is not very refined, since we are limited only to the horizontal plane. This is primarily a uniform wiring, in which the slider lets the whiskers over the surface. Uniform wiring can and should be diversified with pauses, small podigrovki with the tip of the rod. It is also useful to use light jerk wiring. And sometimes, the best effect is given by a “dog walk” wiring, when the bait rushes to one side or the other with each subsequent pulling of the rod.

Of course, in those fishing conditions where a glider is used, there can not be a question of a high implementation of bites. The fish will rush, often miss, or simply not be detected by a single hook, and even sticking out in the air. But here we should console ourselves with the fact that using baits of other types, we would not have seen so many bites and exits – we would not have thrown them into the places where the glider runs.
