# Eraser for fishing, how to make it yourself

Fishing - rest for the soul. And today we'll talk about how to make an elastic band for fishing. Let's start with the sinker. Its weight should be chosen so that it does not slip when pulling the trophy, and also throughout the day. The peculiarity of the tackle we are considering is that the casting must occur further than at the usual Donka, at least by the length of the rubber band itself. For this reason, fishing on an elastic band, as a rule, involves swim in the necessary place along with the cargo on your own or on a boat.

## Fishing with a rubber band

For convenience, you can hang a thin rope, which clings to the float. At the end of fishing for him, you can pull the sinker. It will be superfluous to additionally weight a small weight place of the joint of the elastic band with the line. He will press the latter to the ground and will not allow it to walk freely along the height of the river or lake.

We continue our topic about what an elastic band is for fishing, how to make it and how to catch it. Next, we choose the length and size of the rubber. The latter is square and round. It is better to give preference to the square variety, because the probability of marriage is very high in the round, namely the presence of air bubbles, in which it is often broken, and this always does not happen in time.

## Length calculation

So, we determined, best of all - a square rubber band for fishing. How to make it the right length? Take ten centimeters of this material as a sample and stretch it until a break occurs. Then determine the stretch factor. If before the break the length of your eraser was seventy centimeters, it means that it is one to seven. To exclude a break during fishing, and also that our rubber band was not too taut, we lower the value a little, for example, to one to five.

After we have determined which stretch factor our fishing gum has, how to make it the necessary length, it will not be difficult to guess. For example, if it is necessary that the hooks go forty meters from the shore, the length of the rubber should be equal to eight meters.

In order for the tackle not to break out of your hands and not hurt you with hooks, drive a strong stick into the ground, the top of which you need to split with a knife. During the stretching, draw a line in this cleft and make a few turns around this stick, then again shove it into the cleavage. Now there is nothing to worry about. Calmly take off your catch and put the bait on hooks. After this, the line is unhurriedly removed from the stick and gently, a little bit, released back into the pond.

## Results

As for the choice of a burglar alarm, this is a personal matter of your taste. That's basically all that is an elastic band for fishing. How to make it, you now know. I would also like to add that this tackle is quite old. Convenient is that you only need to start it once in the necessary place, after which you will no longer need to restart it every time. However, if you want to change the place of catching, this advantage turns into a disadvantage, because in this case you have to tinker, and quite a lot, but this need arises not too often.
