Moody White Eye Sope

It’s frosty. Fifteen degrees in the morning. Under a high shore, on the slopes of which a small village is spread, there are about thirty fidgets sitting on a frosty morning on ice more than a cozy TV chair. Boers crawl in the ice, smiles sparkle under a frosty mustache, someone is already warming up, pushing a neighbor heavily in the shoulder. He answers the same. Do not bite …

It doesn’t bite me either, and therefore I’m tired of looking for this elusive white-eyed sopa, I am sitting in a tent and chasing teas. The receiver purrs, in a tent warmed by the sun, it is warm and somehow cozy in the kitchen.

The nod of one of the fishing rods shook and I, having dropped the lid from a thermos with hot tea, was reaching for hooking. Ugh, you! .. It wasn’t worth fussing: the ruff, having bent its tail scantily, as if a soldier with a hint of salute, were looking at me with bulging eyes. Here it is … Volga fish, on a hook … And the local grandfather said that he had not done more than one hole before the hydroelectric station during the winter. As he breaks a lane in the first ice, so all winter and catches from it a bream, blue dander, pike perch, perch, and closer to spring – and a thick-bellied ide. There were times… Continue reading

Wuhu ate?

At first, we will talk about things relatively neutral, and only then – about the main, in my opinion, threat to an ordinary amateur fisherman.

Ambiguous opinions are expressed regarding amendments to the recreational fishing law. This was also written in an article by Mikhail Semin, recently published on the pages of the resource “Hunters. RU”. The author is not in vain afraid of repressive measures on the part of our state against ordinary amateur fishers. And the technology of such measures is visible quite noticeably. First, a throw-in is made, then there is a discussion, a promise not to take unpopular measures, and then, with reference to objective circumstances, as well as to the changed situation, the most stringent draconian law is adopted. And here you can draw an analogy with the law on raising the retirement age. However, if we take into account how much money our pensioners survive, then the upcoming pension will not seem so desirable. Rather, it is a painful way of suicide. For some reason, our state proposes to tighten our belts in difficult times and live on the brink of poverty for the most needy and unprotected, this is for the elderly and state employees from education and culture. Tips to tighten their belts for some reason do not concern deputies and officials.

But back to fishing. At first, we will talk about things relatively neutral, and only then – about the main, in my opinion, threat to an ordinary amateur fisherman. Continue reading

Logs Mugs

… In the light of thunder-storm flashes, like a native of inferno, a bristling clod of four kilograms of glance at us looked from us in the net …

For two hours we lashed the quiet expanse of the reservoir near Dubova with lures, but everything was in vain – the pike did not take. Either because the water was clarified to a stream purity, and the baubles in it burned with hot fire, or perhaps because of the appearance of a full moon at night, the fish rejected our tricks. In a word, a fisherman will always find a worthy explanation for his failure. And then Nikolai, whom we met on the shore, suddenly pulled a nylon canal from under the boat bench. Water splashed in it.

– Are there any circles? He asked, opening the bowl.

I shook my head and looked into the can. Small fish swam there. Continue reading
