Hearing from someone “there is no fish here” – do not believe it. There is fish wherever there is water. Everywhere: in a pond, in a lake, in a stream, in a river, in a river, in a reservoir. If there is a fish, it means that it feeds, therefore, it can be caught. It is just necessary to create conditions for this. One of them suggests that you need to fish for what it constantly eats. For the rivers of Tatarstan, this is a bloodworm. Here you need to catch it first of all. It is very important to keep the bloodworm fresh. You will have to make an effort to keep him alive, for he is afraid of light and heat.
“To always be with the catch, you need good tackle.” Yes, by and large it is, but what are “good”? Try to get started with a minimal kit. When choosing a rod, remember that you need a 7m charcoal swing. Not composite, not fiberglass, but coal. Whatever the seller tells you, ask for coal. Why? Because coal is lighter and tougher. There is no alternative to him. Next comes the line. Here it is better to take branded, with a diameter of 0.10 to 0.14, and preferably “fresh”. Leashes. We agreed on simplicity, so don’t worry: buy ready-made leads of 0.08-0.09 mm, for example, from Owner. The number of the hook is from 16 to 20, while the color is better than red. Remember: a blunt and thick hook negates all the fishworm’s appeal to fish.
The leash and the hook are the most consumable items: catch and throw it away! An important point: the length of the leash with a hook should always be the same, up to a centimeter! Why? Because the fish feeds in one specific horizon. The most important condition is the accuracy of determining the depth of fishing, up to a couple of centimeters. Having lost the level, you will lose the bite. The optimal float for a seven meter swing should be in the shape of a rugby ball. Its carrying capacity in calm weather is 2 g, in the wind – 3 or even 4 g. Let the thin gear do not cause you any doubts. Hooks of numbers 18-22 easily hold one and a half and two kilogram bream, which, you see, is very good for a float rod. For skeptics, I will give an example of the following case: I brought a carp weighing 2.5 kg on a Shimano Ultegra 0.08 mm leash.
There is no miracle bait, but there is a correct understanding of the mechanism of its work. Groundbait can be heavy and sticky or light and crumbly. The task of the bait is to lie on the bottom and disintegrate, while keeping the fish around it. On Mesha and Kama sticky groundbait is needed, on the Volga – crumbly. Typical mistakes: a light mixture is carried away by the current, or, conversely, the sticky groundbait lies on the bottom like a stone and the water cannot cope with it. Today shops offer a wide range of different baits. But you can make your own. I give a “Tatar” recipe, the simplest, most budgetary and universal. Works everywhere. Vary it: add or reduce the binder oat and get the desired consistency. At the same time, remember that the mixture does not need to be waterlogged. I’m not afraid to say a seditious thing: the mechanics and behavior of bait in water are more important than its taste.
Tatar complementary foods:
3 parts ground biscuits 5 parts rye breading 1 part freshly ground cake 0.5 parts ground oatmeal
0.5 parts granulated sugar 0.1 parts cocoa Packing of “Garlic” salt Two parts of fried corn semolina will not harm either.
It seemed that he did everything right, but the fish did not bite or stopped biting. To constantly keep the fish with you, it is necessary to supplement the point by tossing lumps of bait. Having collected a thin and light rig, the angler begins by tearing the leads on the hook. In fact, you just need to quickly and shortly raise the rod: on a good hook, the fish will be spotted by itself, and the rod will extinguish its jerks. After hooking, do not take the fish out into the air. You just need to smoothly bring it to the landing net. After all, walking a dog, you do not lift it into the air by the leash, but simply lead it, directing it where you need it. With fish, you must do the same.
Of course, you can’t tell everything in one short note. If you have any questions, write to the editorial office. I will gladly share my experience, and not only my own, but also my friends, among whom there are simply excellent anglers.
