All fish attractive to anglers, except for the asp, they stop at the surface more exceptionally than regularly, thus, individual methods of surface fishing can only be used occasionally and in justified cases. We can fish on the surface in many ways, but always with this in mind, that fish in a less natural environment for them may be more suspicious than usual. A floatless set with a bait can be considered as an optimal fishing set, which, having a certain weight, does not sink when dropped (crust of bread, cockchafer, etc.). With such a simple set we can fish either with the touch method, or by the "float."”.
