Dead zone

Birch trees were gilded, maples were covered with grease, and a red leaf fell on the still icy water, blue from the same blue sky, even cold in appearance. In the mornings, the grass turns gray with brittle hoarfrost, but with the burning sun thaws and is covered with a tearful placer.

These years are not hasty for the winter. Just in the morning everything was ossified in a frosty haze, and you already guess how suddenly tomorrow calm waters will catch in with thin ice at first. And with gambling impatience, you begin to sort through winter gear and uniforms. But the day will come, and everything will be repeated all over again: an ice mat in a hoarfrost, frozen water in an old barrel thrown with a leaf, and … a warm, almost summer day.

In the morning I was on a suburban river. He drank water alone with tested oscillators and wobblers. On one casting and winding, the fishing line suddenly stopped, and the lure became heavier many times. It seemed that he had hooked the grass mane with tees, but the grass went to the side, and soon on the fishing line a little beetle elastically twitched, quite decent for a small river. After that, no matter how the water was whipped with a wide variety of baits, there was no grip. Apparently, the reason for the rare pike exits is the small number in these places, albeit not a large pike. 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

Rye bread

Rybina obviously fed on top. How to take it?

Today I am on Rutka. Sorog has already passed. Pecked mostly local fish. Now the top of the donkey jerked from sharp jerks. I am hunting out a small scammer. A worm was planted here. And on the hook of the feeder, I remember, I planted a reel of cool semolina as a test. The scavenger there was two times larger than this, which he took on the worm. I put semolina on the hook of the donkey.

Something early, the fish switched to flour and vegetable baits. Although … It all depends, apparently, on the temperature of the water. Compared to air, the water seemed quite warm, almost in summer. Perhaps it’s time for the fish to adapt to summer conditions.

Cool was funny. Either the feeder or the donka were shaken from hitting the top and spring scammers resisted on the fishing line. I was already convinced that it was in my plan, thinking that I had fallen into the spring zhor of a bream, as the fish suddenly stopped taking, quite … banal, cut it off … And this coincided with the rise of the morning sun on the teeth of light forest on the opposite bank. Classic! Only the classics are somehow strange, more suitable for the hot July. Continue reading
