Fly fishing rod

Classic fishing. What is the difference between fly fishing rods. Fishing line. Floats. Hooks

The fly fishing rod is probably the most popular and widespread tackle among Russian fishermen. Probably, such a love for this tackle is generally associated with attachment to the float fishing rod of all segments of the population, from schoolchildren to gray-haired pensioners.

A fly fishing rod is not much different from the traditional Aksakov uda, consisting of a fishing rod, fishing line, float, sinker and hook.

Fishing at the pond in summer

What kind of fish and what gear do fishermen catch on village ponds.

Fishermen at the pond in summer

Of course, first of all, on a village pond in the summer, there is a real expanse for fishing anglers who will not exchange their fishing rod with classic equipment for anything, but it was used a couple of centuries ago.

On the Volga from the shore

In the morning, the Volga resembles a large lake. Almost no current, and along the coast stretch strips of greenery. HPS gates usually open at around ten o’clock. Only then can you start the engine and go to checked their places. Such places are mostly located on the right high bank of the Volga in the area of ​​the village of Kokshaysk, where both the depth is greater and the current is stronger. There you need heavy gear and powerful anchors. Donka – “ringing” with a kilogram of lead in the feeder – the most popular gear. Large ides, bream keep here and from time to time make themselves felt with sharp bites and the ringing of a bell on the gatehouse of the onboard donka. But all this is possible when the “give” the current. In the early morning, if one cannot sleep, one can only admire the beauties of nature.
