How Gray-haired dragged crucian carp for two rods at once

On crucian fishing, in the ancient village of Salobelyak, Vyatka province.

This time I took with me only a five-meter “float” and a homemade feeder. His gatekeeper, the quyvertip, showed the thinnest bite, swinging against the background of the water like a float. The lateral installation of the quiver initially offers to stare only at the top in the reeds and frogs croaking in the mud. No landscape before the eyes and the colors of dawn.

Also, my feeder does not need replaceable tops, because it is strong and unbending, like all clumsy gear of the Soviet era, when they did not notice kilogram pikes on the fishing line. Only when the “keel of three” sits down, then it became clear – took the pike. And here – he threw the feeder, reeled up the wicker and – everything, the tackle is alert, facing the dawn. Almost like on my Obi-3 among the Volga, only the bell is missing. But instead, you can attach a feeder bells. Let not my castor feed the Paleolithic era by 80 meters, but for some reason I always had forty. But put at least a 150-gram feeding trough, the spinning will not grunt, and the gatehouse as it was a bit to bite remained. 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

On the channel near the Horseshoe

Pike is envious of someone else’s hunt. Tired of the grip of little things, built a “tandem” …

Today I go spinning along the channel near the island of Horseshoe. There was a short rain, the sun came out and everything around me steamed. I move along the coastal grass and from time to time I check the lure’s warm water. Having exhausted the supply of running and tested oscillators, I turn to turntables and wobblers. And then some exotic jelly-like worms, peeped in fishing films, come into play, but then I leave these delights to athletes, professionals. I’m not quite a retrograde and take something useful for myself, apply it. Now there are a lot of all sorts of literature, manuals, useful, of course, but most often being a compilation, not quite author’s. And there is no desire to rack their brains over all these expensive new products, because, unlike professionals, often narrowly focused (spinning, for example), I like fishing the most diverse, in unexpected and fresh places. Having lashed the channel up and down, I get out to the shore – to swallow a seagull. Having set up a tent on a wind-blown shoreline, I climb into it, lifting it up, and quietly fall asleep under the purr of the receiver and the grunt of waves on the banks. Continue reading
