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. And that is understandable. After all, this is a classic fishing. A fly fishing rod is not much different from the traditional Aksakov uda, consisting of a fishing rod, fishing line, float, sinker and hook. Only modern fishing rods are made of durable and lightweight carbon fiber, which is also used in the keel of flywheel floats.

Fly fishing rod

Cannibals among fish

What kind of fish would not mind to scorn and gobble up your brother by blood? And what do we fishermen care about who among the fish devours each other?

Many of the fish in our reservoirs are not particularly sensitive and scrupulous in their choice of food and prey, even if they are individuals of the same species. If we talk about eating the eggs of a neighbor for spawning, and of its own species, then all fish sin from this, from conditionally peaceful to notorious predators. Too, apparently, this food is tasty and high-calorie – caviar. In addition, any quieter and laziest peaceful fish would not mind catching the fry if it suddenly appears next to the mouth of a hypocrite carp at the wrong time and in the wrong place … Especially if the carp or bream are stately and large fish.

Few river fish guard their offspring
Such defenders of their eggs and fry include pike perch, and, according to some information, it’s men, dads. Such fanged and thorny dads on maternity leave … Therefore, often after spawning, when, it would seem, the spinning player is the time to wait for the active bite and fattening of the spawned predator, this bite never comes. And only in late May and early June, zander begins to actively grab the bait and bait fish. Continue reading

When a friend is under the ice

This morning, Sergei clearly caught Vitaly on the first ice. The fish seemed to go around the holes of his friend and took only from him. When another large fish fluttered at Sergei’s hole, Vital broke through. For about five minutes he cursed the fate of the tin, interspersing lamentations with juicy-catchy interjections, and in the end he kicked the snotty ruff lying alone at the hole and, throwing a box behind his back, moved to the fairway.

Sergey was strangled with laughter – a hefty kid burst out laughing like a boy, but understood Vitaly with his heart: he had to envy himself, looking at a successful neighbor carrying fish one after another, and there were only three meters to the neighbor’s hole …

– 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
