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

Fisherman’s Dreams – Tent Stack CUBE 2

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

Good thermal underwear for a low price

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.
