Fishing for bream with side fishing rods.

Fishing the bream with onboard fishing rods from a boat is attractive primarily because bites, even the most cautious, can be observed in the immediate vicinity. In addition, it is not necessary to wield long fishing rods, which is especially difficult in the wind. Anyway, this kind of fishing is somewhat reminiscent of winter fishing, especially on a hot summer day, when nostalgia for winter fishing comes.

It is easy to make gear for onboard fishing yourself, they are very compact and easily fit in a backpack. With them, it is easy to get to any reservoir by public transport, where you can rent a boat at the fishing base. On the road, there is no need to fear for the safety of gear – they will not hinder anyone because of their small size. The method that I want to talk about is used when fishing in reservoirs and reservoirs, where the current is small or absent. The depth in the selected place should be at least 4 meters – in a shallow cautious fish, it is afraid to come close to the boat. The boat should be light on the move, maneuverable, have low sides and therefore not too sail in the wind. Continue reading

I’m learning fly fishing. For beginners

Taking this kind of article, I am fully aware that I am exposing myself to the fire of criticism from all sides, especially from experienced fly-fishing. But I hope that my recommendations stimulate to a certain extent and they have a desire to share their experience with newcomers.

Ases, apparently, firstly, they completely forgot about the difficulties that they encountered at first; secondly, for some reason they bypass the silence of fly fishing in bodies of water in central Russia. All published materials, as a rule, are devoted to fishing for trout, trout, grayling or salmon in Kola, Siberia or Karelia – fishing, as my microscopic experience shows, is much simpler than catching a chub, ide or dace on some Ugra near Moscow or Nerl.
