If you want to learn how to use fly fishing gear, you should know musk first. As we've seen, fly fishing has a reputation in many countries. As a result, musk production has also raised awareness among different groups of people, from teenagers to the elderly.
Musk has a long history in China, which can be divided into three categories: natural musk, medicinal artificial musk and daily artificial musk for chemical industry. With the advance of fly fishing, musk has been used as a bait. However, musk has been the subject of intense debate in recent years, which will be explained below.
1. Natural Musk
To put it bluntly, musk is more expensive than gold, at more than $100,000 per kilogram. What's more, in the Chinese market, even if you spend enough money on musk, it's still possible to buy a fake product or one made from an effective substance.
Musk is also used in medicines that protect our hearts. The medicine is popular and advanced in China, where medicinal artificial musk has long been used instead of natural musk. The Japanese pill used to use natural musk. But because of financial concerns, the industry has been forced to adjust its prescriptions to remove natural musk.
Artificial musk for fly fishing
Medicinal artificial musk simply mimics the taste of natural musk and is commonly used in fly-fishing gear. It can be added to cosmetics in limited quantities and is banned in some countries. Because large amounts of musk can cause infertility or miscarriage, especially in women. All pregnant women should know that they should use little or no perfume.
In fact, the artificial musk used in the daily chemical industry may have the same effect as many complex perfumed drugs. In addition, China has previously issued regulations prohibiting artificial musk from being added to feed. And there should be some caveats, such as using scientific methods for fly fishing. In addition, fishermen and fish women should pay attention to the health of their families and treat fishing correctly.
3. Artificial musk made by daily chemicals
Medicinal artificial musk is classified and its function is equivalent to the use of natural musk in accordance with national regulations. So all medicinal musk today is this artificial musk, which came on the market in the early 1990s.
The price is not expensive, only about 10 yuan in the market of medicinal materials, can be used to make fishing gear, but to tell the truth, this musk and natural musk is different. There are also reports that artificial musk can be harmful to human health in large doses, and the barriers to purchase are high.
As far as I'm concerned, though, these musks aren't very good for fly fishing. There are still ways you can make your dreams come true. You can make your own bait. First of all you have to prepare the materials are: corn flour 1 kg, millet half kg, sorghum millet half kg, musk powder 100 grams, three spoons of honey, two kilograms of wine, three spoons of brown sugar, a glass jar.
Put musk powder on the bait and knead well. Then you should add the honey and brown sugar and knead again. After that, you should sprinkle wine with a watering can and knead it into a bait. You can repeat this process a few times until you run out of wine. When finished, you can place the prepared bait directly into the glass jar and cover it with a lid or plastic wrap. If it's sunny, it's good for fermentation. If it's cloudy, keep it up for a week, and the effect is the same.
It can take up to a week to complete the process, unlike other homemade lures that can take half a month or a month. Since corn is used as a grain along with millet and sorghum millet, this musk fly-fishing tackle is ideal for fishing. For spring, summer and fall, you can decide whether to add musk or not. But you need musk in winter. Because of the small area of fish movement in winter, it is difficult to attract fish without musk powder.
