The first changes in the usual way of life under the influence of the new law have already been felt by the fishermen of the polar Igarka. They were forbidden to get local Yenisei fish, in particular, omul, vendace, and tugun, citing the fact that the agreement was over, and they were not going to conclude a new agreement. The reason, apparently, is in the very law “On amateur fishing”, in which fishing by the nets will be allowed only to fishermen of the Far East. However, the regional authorities do not name the cause, since Igarka’s fishermen’s requests remain unanswered. Therefore, fishermen asked for quotas for catching fish by nets in certain areas where, according to local residents, they have been catching Siberian vendace and Arctic omul for nets for decades, since there is no way to catch them with a fishing rod. Omul, by the way, has been banned from catching since 2012 and, probably, residents of Igarka will no longer be able to eat it. And fresh fish was and remains in those places one of the ways to obtain nutrients and vitamins, in particular, Omega-3 and Omega-6, found mainly in whitefish, in the same omul and vendace. I lived in Igarka and remember that on the table there was often a planer of omul and whitefish ice cream. Continue reading
Tent Stack KUB 2 can be called the embodiment of a fisherman’s dream, where a relatively low price is combined with the best qualities of a tent for winter fishing and overnight on ice. And first of all, this relates to the protection of the fisherman from external influences, which is facilitated by a three-layer coating consisting of an awning, the material of which is Oxford 300PU synthetic windproof fabric, a lower quilted sintepon awning and a taffet-type lining fabric with a thermal stitch. The top of the Stack KUB 2 tent is 75 percent composed of breathable tarpaulin, which makes it possible to use various heaters in the form of gas stoves without the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. In addition, the tent is equipped with a ventilation window with a zipper.
Tent Stack CUBE 2. Three-layer, breathable
The tent with the full name STEC “KUB-2” OXFORD 300 is made in the form of a cube, which in recent years has become increasingly popular among anglers. And that is understandable. This shape makes the tent more spacious and bulk inside. In addition, the height of this tent is 185 cm, which allows a rather tall fisherman to stand in a tent at full height, without bending down, as in many tents of the same characteristics and price. The full size of STEK “KUB-2” OXFORD 300 in length, width and height is 185x185x185 cm. And this is a voluminous and comfortable home with a water resistance of 3000 mm. Continue reading
Everyone, probably, a fisherman, experienced what it was like to walk several kilometers along a snow-covered winter reservoir, when breaking through the crust, shoe covers fall into a sticky porridge of snow and water, and then they knock on the ice monolith. And so – every step, which is gained a lot in kilometers of travel. It’s not always possible to get to the catching hole on a “motor dog”, “karakat” and a snowmobile. And walking with sled drags behind your back is often the only possible way to travel on ice, especially on thin and dangerous ice for snowmobiles. On foot there is such an insidious feature. While walking, even in the most severe frost it becomes hot in a fishing suit, sweat literally pours and soon ordinary underwear will become wet. Then, sitting at the hole, the angler in such wet underwear will desperately freeze, even when it is not so cold. And in the cold and wind, this can cause a cold. And it will not be time for fishing when the body is pierced by cold and beats trembling. Therefore, in any active fishing, the role of thermal underwear is very important, which holds heat and evaporates moisture well. Moreover, it should be borne in mind that our attraction to natural wool, half-woolen and cotton fabrics, from which some models of thermal underwear are sewn, is not always justified and appropriate.
