Which fish are caught primarily on poppers?
Predators of our most indifferent to Popper perch, especially when he sticks to the schooling of the method of hunting. Moreover, Popper is sometimes possible to 'start a' passive bass, which show no sign of interest in other baits, but suddenly 'wake up' when the next recruitment is heard gurgling. In second place (and with a very small margin) - pike. Popper very good 'collects' the pike in the ponds, peat bogs and grassy bays of reservoirs. Chub on poppers fished away on everywhere and always. But if at least one chub show interest to Popper, others are unlikely to quietly pass. Asp and poppers - the concept of compatible, but only in part: all the same asp bowl catch on more long-range bait. I've several times to catch on poppers rudd, ide and perch.

Protecting the wood
Cleaning antique furniture can damage the wood if it is not done correctly so make sure you use all the protection necessary. Clean any liquids that fall on the wooden surfaces immediately and do not allow the fluids to sit. Cleaning antique furniture in this instance would require dabbing the stain with a soft cloth until all of the solvent has been removed. Avoid wiping it away, because it could cause more damage. To maintain wooden antiques in the best possible way, keep them away from direct sunlight. Sunlight can contribute to discolouration and irreversible damage.
Maintaining a clean environment
Always keep in mind that antiques are old and sensitive. To avoid damaging your antique furniture, make sure that you keep your antiques in a clean room with constant temperatures. Large variations in temperature throughout the day can be damaging to your antiques.
