English fishing rod

The fishing rod, which will be discussed today, comes from England, and its main element is a plug rod with rings, designed for fishing with a reel, thin fishing line and a light float. Sometimes it is called “sports” or “match” (from the English “match rod”), because it is used by athletes in competitions.

What is its essence? I will explain with a specific example. Once at the exit from a rather deep bay (Ruzskoe reservoir) to the Black Fury spinner I picked up a decent perch. However, subsequent casts for approximately 20 minutes were inconclusive. Meanwhile, perch drove a trifle at the very surface of the water.

I put a yellow twister – after a couple of casts a bite. Behind her is another, third. I change (for experiment) the yellow twister to black – again a snap. But the time (the same 20 minutes) of the morning zhor was lost, and soon the predator disappeared. I advise you to do no more than ten casts with each bait, and then change it. Then the perch will let you know which one is more to his taste. Continue reading

We also chose the place where the tent stood before us, additionally fed these holes, set up our Maverick quick-setting tent – it’s warm, comfortable, we are waiting for bites. Continue reading
