Fishing on top during the golden days of Indian Summer. What is the reason for the fish’s unwillingness to peck?
More than once in the summer I heard a frank “champing” of fish that is heard right in the thickets of water lilies. Moreover, when he went to the river in the early morning, almost at night, then in the still silence of a warm night, these sounds were heard from afar. Some of the cyprinids clearly ate up on top, licking from the lower side of the burdock egg capsules of worms, larvae, small bloodworms and various water bugs.
After spending the morning with a spinning rod, having caught very few medium-sized perches and having missed the pike, he wound it on his mustache … well, about the “champing” shameless fish.

– Vitaly! – shouted after Sergey. – Sit next, haste. Have fun together!
But Vitaly, without turning around, waved his hand and walked quickly.
Again, a large scammer took Sergey, but the joy of his capture seemed to fade, was incomplete. But what seemed to be missing? And the fish bite, and the ice is warm, as in the blessed season of the Indian summer. Continue reading
