COARSE FISH: MYSTIC, GUARDING NET, DIRECT ROD


Mystic is usually set up on a delicate hook, n░18, 20 or 22.

MYSTIC, A MIRACLE PASTE!

Mystic was born in 1950, thanks to the famous French competitor Robert Tess. This is an industrial synthetic paste which mostly consists of various chemical products. Considering its numerous qualities, it is not strange that it won the hearts of so many anglers: it is always ready to use, very durable and, most importantly, gives excellent results for all cyprinidae* fish.

In the very beginning, it was only available in a red colour. However, nowadays it is available in much wider colour pallets. Each colour has a precise role: classic red colour imitates ver de vas, yellow imitates wheat or rye grain, black hemp grain, green the Summer submarine moss, orange fish eggs, and white is advised for cloud effect, if you use surface food for small fish. There are also three flourescent colours which give good results in muddy waters and at great depths.

  


If you can't think of any other solution, use a regular rock to weigh down the guarding net. However, be careful, since you may easily damage your net.

ADVICE FOR THE GUARDING NET

For keeping the fish safe during fishing, the best thing is to use the so-called English or the competitive guarding net. A net a few meters long, it enables the fish to move freely inside it and, even more importantly, and especially in the Summer, to remain in deeper and colder water levels.

However, in running water, because of the currents, it is not always easy to stretch it out completely, nor keep it firm. The solution is to weigh down the net. String some large round leads on a strong monofilament (0,50 mm) and tie them to the bottom of the guarding net.

  


For making the marks on the rod and monofilament, there are especially designed products, such as the Sensas marker. However, you can also use the regular white-out.

WHAT'S THE CATCH WITH THE DIRECT ROD?

When fishing is difficult and bites non-existant, a better solution would be to relocate the float. After some time, you forget at which depth you are fishing. In order to avoid repeating depth checking, mark the initial depth on the direct rod with a special marker at the very beginning of fishing.

The same solution can be applied to the match technique. Namely, it is not easy to always cast out the rig at the same distance. In order to solve this problem, mark the monofilament after the first casting, on the spot where it enters the reel. On your next cast, as soon as you see that the white markings are getting closer to the reel, you can be sure that the rig achieved the desired distance.
