Rotors and Swivels: Each in One’s Own

Its functions. The keys to choose the most appropriate. Peculiarities depending on the species desired fish.

Rotors of wire and type Dulce or swivels can be used in the rig for fishing of sea or river. Basic rigging is assembled on a stretch of nylon of approximately 1 m, on which are mounted two rotors of wire or two small swivels double twist, which leave two snoods that at its end hooks are attached.

Rotors are threaded on the nylon between beads, and can be attached to fixed or sliding knots. The latter have the advantage that you can vary the distance between rotor and rotor, depending on how you are eating the fish. For example, it will be different if you are attempting to fishing for corvina itching only background or if you were fishing whiting, which usually move to medium water and it is convenient to make the hooks to work above.

Trying to coast gives very good results placed at the end of the rig a small buoy for more lift line, especially if we are trying to fishing for Silversides or whiting, and use shorter snoods according to

When the line is armed with wire rotors should take into account that the nylon with which hook is attached at the time of the final loop, should not be any thinner or thicker than the step that allows the rotor coil. That way, when it is screwed on the spiral of the rotor it will be perfectly adjusted and will not climb out of it.

In case of using swivels, the hook with ganging attaches differently: bound, i.e., passing through the eyelet of the swivel first loop and then the hook inside. When you want to change the hook is not as easy as when using wire rotor, but it has two advantages: the possibility of the double twist and tangle less ganging. If we fish in areas with many seaweed, hook less vegetation. And if we act on the sea, give higher result than the wire, since they work vertically, up and down several times. And having double twist less entangled.
