PLAN B”

I don’t know exactly how you prepare for each of your trips, but personally, I always turn to satellite maps for help. This is especially true for trips to a new area, and it doesn’t matter if it’s big water, or a small fast-flowing river – a backup plan or escape routes should always be present. In our modern world, unfortunately, at a proven point for completely different reasons, anything can happen, from various cataclysms to a location spoiled by poachers. The bottom line is that the point no longer brings the proper and desired catch, and you have to use a kind of “plan B” and move to where you have never been at all. This is perceived with particular delight when you send to a small river for a chub. After all, it would seem that behind the bend of your beloved river that is already familiar to you, there may be a completely different landscape and completely different fishing, well, how can a sophisticated angler be able to deny himself such a temptation, how to explore a new area?

No, I certainly started with a proven route, but everything went wrong from the very beginning. Despite the absence of rains, the water in the river became noticeably cloudy, and the greatly dropped level exposed huge areas of overgrown grass. Of course, it took some time to understand that the chub no longer shows that activity in the stream itself, and hides in the very nearest nook in the shade of overhanging trees, but with knowledge and understanding of the situation, it is really possible to persuade him, with only one difference, which is very “point-like” … That is, if moving up the river you managed to catch one, or maybe two, in the shade of some massive tree, then in fact, you should probably move on and not wait for the cherished miracle – most likely, there is no fish left here. ready to attack your bait, and if you want to feel the maximum possible number of bites, then you should move on. And I really wanted to see the new site, especially since it really turned out to be very readable, and very responsive to bites.

Using the baits, I came to one, as it seemed to me, but the correct conclusion: not the main “what”, but the main “how”! In my case, in addition to the already held classics in the face of the Kosadaka Roger family, who this time again became the favorites of the trip, I managed to catch both the legendary Chubby from Jackall and the “stream” Tricorol minino all from the same company, and even with success adapted the novelty of this season to local conditions – the Kosadaka Pum wobbler. The key: to get under the very edge of the water in places where all kinds of branches were as close as possible to the water; after that you need to give the bait some time to float downstream, and as a rule, at the very first revolutions of the coil, the chub’s lightning-fast reaction followed. Yes, not as much as we would like, but nevertheless the ill-fated “Plan B” really worked and brought a lot of positive emotions from the new section of the river, where almost certainly the leg of a “typical vacationer” had never set foot. In addition, the peculiar magic of micro-rivers is simply impossible to describe in words. Indeed, despite all sorts of obstacles, a previously unknown result and the difficult accessibility of promising places, you always want to come back here again and again …
