How: thread through the mouth and take the hook out at the tail.
Appearance: an arc on the curve of the hook, with exposed palette.
Recommended technique: plummet fishing for both float and bottom fishing, on a lot of voracious fishes.
Remarks and tips: resistant also for several captures, it is an easy baiting that is widely spread in speed competitions. This baiting is also considered efficient, as the whole bait is on the hook, and when the trout bites, the entire hook is already inside its mouth.
Quick Bombarda float baiting
How: thread through mouth and take the hook out a little bit before half the body, on the leg section.
Appearance: straight shape, 60° with respect to the line-hook axis, with half of the hook covered.
Recommended technique: Bombarda float fishing with flat weight, 8-15 grams, for float fishing on a lot of voracious fishes.
Remarks and tips: Clearly effective baiting, as it rotates very well when pulling the line and it is also convincing for fishes that are faraway. It is necessary to let the bait be eaten well, so as not to miss striking the fish. With this baiting, there is a risk of tearing the bait with very violent throws or during the trout attacks; therefore, it is necessary to be light-handed.
Baiting with pointed larva
Hook: No. 14 with thin line.
How: enter the tip of the hook just below the head and take it out immediately after.
Appearance: extremely natural.
Recommended technique: float fishing with Bombarda floats even in the middle of lakes, in combination with ends that are two to three meters long, or for rod fishing, with distrustful but hungry fishes.
Remarks and tips: it is better to use a dark bronze hook. The result of this very simple baiting is presenting the bait as smoothly and naturally as possible. It is advisable to retrieve the bait from time to time a couple of meters, forcing rotation and drawing the predator’s attention, and then leave it fall down again in a completely natural way.
Baiting with larva on the line
Hook: No. 8-10 with thin line.
How: pass the hook along the whole worm, taking it out completely. It is the same starting from the head or from the tail.
Appearance: straight larva on the line.
Recommended technique: long and very long float fishing.
Remarks and tips: very resistant baiting with which you will never lose the bait, which does not tear or get detached, after the first predator’s bites.
When the line is pulled, the bait moves irregularly and rotates, thus drawing the trout’s attention.
Baiting with larva at the middle of the body
Hook: 8-10 with short shank.
How: thread the worm between the legs at the middle of the body and take it out at the tail, or thread up towards the head and get out at the head itself.
Appearance: worm a little bit sideways, with the tip of the hook in sight.
Recommended technique: plummet fishing.
Remarks and tips: it is very special and requires some tests before finding the right portion for obtaining a good movement. For this baiting, it is necessary to use corpulent larvae; therefore, choose medium-size or large worms. Every time the fisher flicks the rod, the bait will move irregularly, which stimulates the predator.
Classical double baiting
How: the first larva is baited from the tail to the mouth and it is moved upwards over the palette; the second larva is baited through the mouth and taken out at one third of its body, on the leg section.
Appearance: L-shaped: the two larvae, head to head, must form a 90º right angle, leaving the tip of the hook uncovered.
Recommended technique: all the techniques.
Remarks and tips: easy to use and widespread, it is very effective for listless fishes that do not bite hard baits, or for bottom fishing, when a striking bait with optimal rotation is essential for getting good results.
Hidden double baiting
Hook: 8- 10.
How: the first larva is threaded from the tail and taken out through the mouth; the second larva must be threaded 3-4 millimeters below the head and move up towards the head, without taking out the tip of the hook.
Appearance: staggered larvae that hide the entire hook.
Recommended technique: rod fishing or with stick float.
Remarks and tips: easy to use and resistant with limited rotation, it is not very suitable for retrieve fishing, but its advantage is that during several minutes, the second bait remains alive and moves on the hook.
