Bolognese fishing is defined as fishing with telescopic reed and reel has a huge popularity in Italy, where it originated.
In Portugal, as in other countries, it is a technique that has not penetrated the habits of the majority of fishermen, namely in the competition, being limited to a resource fishery in certain adverse situations for other techniques such as French and English.
The Bolognese technique should not be confused with another type of fishing very common in boothbuying, especially in the practice of exclusively leisure fishing, also based on a telescopic reel and using the reel, but technically rather rudimentary.
Although somewhat similar to the English one in its objectives, the Bologna fishing is characterized as a medium and long-distance fishing and of waters with current in conditions of absence or little wind, since this when moderate or strong is incompatible with The practice of bologna, and fundamentally because the wire is connected between the tip of the cane and the float always out of water, which forces the fisherman a constant attention to keep the whole assembly in tension.
The reeds are telescopic with drawers and have a length that can vary between 4.5/5 and 8 meters. They can be carbon fiber, lighter and smaller in diameter, or other cheaper but heavier and cumbersome fibers that will cause a greater physical effort.
The hooks can be the same ones used for English fishing, rounded, with short tab, thin and resistant beak and a reduced windshield.
