Fishing Rules Again

The officials are still deciding our fate … Putting the law into practice. How much can be stored and exported. About catch rates.

This topic excites, and the fishing community will excite for a long time, and this topic was re-developed on August 7 in connection with a meeting led by the head of the Federal Agency for Fishery Ilya Shestakov, which was held in Astrakhan. It was about the implementation of the recently adopted Federal Law “On amateur fishing.”

The meeting was attended by representatives of Russian fishing organizations, with a dozen governors and even deputies of the State Duma of Russia. Why was Astrakhan chosen for this Russian forum? Probably due to the fact that for many ordinary fishermen these places are considered to be some kind of fishing Eldorado, an earthly fishing paradise, where every fisherman would like to go during his lifetime … But not everyone succeeds.

Here the gatehouse, quietly bending under the pressure of the current, suddenly stops, bends down sharply, and then, leaning back limply, starts to shake sharply and nervously, making the bell ring. Most often, it takes a bream and most likely a large bream. And scammers take about the same, but still the nature of the bite of a large bream is distinguished by some solidity and authority, which is not determined immediately. Only after sitting on the water a couple of days, you begin to distinguish all these features.
