Traditionally in Russia on the second Sunday of July fisherman's Day is celebrated! Usually various fishing competitions with fish soup cooking and festive festivities are held on this day. And this is a good reason for fishermen to demonstrate their ability to catch a fish in any weather, even in the absence of a bite, to the joy of friends and relatives. Many anglers go to the Day of the Fisherman in the ponds with a variety of gear. So I, being on this day near Primorsky, decided to catch my new feeder set and check it on the far cast.
Recently, I replenished my small arsenal with the MAXIMUS INVADER feeder rod with a length of 4.2 m and a test of 60/120/150 g. Powerful long stick with a reinforced mount rings, just for heavy feeders for long casting or for fishing in a strong current. I equipped this set with a new feeder coil Black Side Guardian 3500 FD with a Power Phantom Water Snake # 1.2 cord. The coil may be a little light for a heavy feeder, but for a trough of 80 grams it seemed to me her power was enough. Braided cord, created for catching on the feeder, inexpensive, fairly smooth, but durable.
I have long wanted to check out this budget kit for fishing.
I planned to catch from one of the numerous piers, which made it possible to increase the casting distance. Of course I could not reach the far edge. But bypassing the numerous coastal algae it helped. This is where a long rod with a big test came in handy. Using a feeder in 80gr on a pond with a barely noticeable current, I pursued primarily the task of throwing the feeder as far as possible.
By the way, EcoPro has ready feeder and carp accessories, equipped with feeders and a leash with a hook. Hook true, I replaced the smaller, №12. Convenient set for beginners who do not want to knit snap independently.
Top set green, with dough at 120g. That turned out to be enough, and the quivertip showed clearly even the small fish.
Although I was counting on the approach of the bream, I had to catch a roach, a nano-barker, a buster and a bleak.
Bait mixed red Dunaev "feeder-river" with thick molasses "large bream" and strawberry syrup. I caught on moldy worm, a bundle of small worm or "sandwich".
Poklevka occurred further algae, but when vyvazhivanii meters through five or seven on the trough hung a bunch of filamentous algae, as if rested against a wall. This prevented vyvazhivaniyu, part of the fish went. But the feeder feeder pulled out the rigging along with the fish and algae.
The main catch was roach. She barked briskly, but many were completely small and were released back.
Part of the fish was taken to demonstrate the catch and as a treat to local cats.
Fishing was generally enjoyed by the cool biting, good weather and the ability to test new gear.
And after the fishing, the summer mushroom season was opened by the first chanterelles.
Congratulations to all anglers on the past Fisherman's Day. Use any opportunity for your favorite hobby and not a tail for you!
