Horse fish can slurp

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. And I decided to change the specifics of fishing. Leaving the pond, I was not too lazy to swim into the very thick of water lilies and pick up there from the bottom of the sheets that fall under the arm. And there any “creature in pairs” got there, that is, the lower floor of water lilies in the summer heat turned out to be quite populated. But who feeds so loudly? I decided to find out with a coal rod. With its unusual lightness and a length of six meters, this is ideal for fishing with a side nod. In addition, you do not have to change the equipment. Fly fishing rod, without rings. Therefore – attach at least a snap with a float, at least any other. Continue reading

Overview of gear and lures for the fall

So, apparently, “Indian summer” has come. In the morning there are misty and scarlet at the dawn frosted matinees with transparent air, smelling of icy damp lowlands and, it seems, already snow. But the days are warm, in a light haze and with weightless fluffy clouds. It’s time to walk along the shore with a spinning rod or swim along the river in a boat, throwing baits into quiet bays and at the boundaries of the river stream and coastal calm. Although in the fall, for the most part, heavy oscillating lures, large wobblers and soft jig baits are used, but the time has not yet come to put the rotating lures into the boxes for storage. They, turntables, can still become the most effective baits on a quiet morning and, especially on a quiet sunny day, when many predators go hunting in shallow water for a fish that comes out to bask in the sun and pinch water bugs and insects on the autumn reeds.

On a leash with live bait

An important feature of autumn fishing. On a leash with a snare bait. Feeder tackle.

There is probably no better time for fishing than quiet sunny days and cold nights in the placer of stars of the “Indian summer” period. Let nature seem to freeze in a sweet and fearful scumbag in the face of imminent cold, gray ice fogs and drizzling days and nights with autumn rains and drizzles. But this time is filled with a sense of solemnity and astringent smoke, even if nothing is burned, with the piercing smell of cold grass in the meadows and bitter foliage, gilded birch groves over quiet water. Over the river, frozen in the morning and gray-haired from hoarfrost, slowly hawk-goshawks are circling, and a gray-haired owl “crouches” somewhere in the dark spruce. This is the main thing in the current hasty and mercantile routine. More philosophers, writers and fishers of past centuries wrote about the great and at first glance invisible, but enchanting power of nature. And all that was important in the 19th century remained so, only computers, navigators and fish disappeared in our rivers and lakes …
