Winter fishing of a bream without a nozzle

The bream is an enviable and desirable trophy at any time of the year for most anglers in central Russia. Muscovites follow him to the Istra, Ruzskoye, Ozerninskoye, Vazuzsko-Yauzskoye reservoirs, as well as the Uglich, Rybinsk and Moscow seas. Some rivers of the Moscow Region are also rich in bream – the Volga, Oka, Protva, Pakhra, Dubna and others.

Quite a lot is known about summer bream bream. It has its own specific features, which is the subject of a separate discussion. Winter bream fishing traditionally suggests that at first it is plentifully fed in several holes with a small bloodworm, and then they begin to “hatch” around these holes for a long time. In this case, three main systems of tackle equipment are used: “float – sinker-hook”, “float – mormyshka”, “nod – mormyshka”. Catch, as a rule, on a motionless tackle, planting bloodworms.

Treacherous, mysterious alien. Crucian

The reasons for this confusion and uncertainty among amateur fishers should be explained by a number of unusual circumstances and conditions. Firstly, in the popular literature on sporting and recreational fishing, two varieties of crucian carp are traditionally described – gold and silver. Moreover, different authors have their own name for silver carp: silver, white, silver (oblong). However, when comparing, it is easy to see that even in appearance (size, shape, weight), the new “brother” is significantly different from its classical form. Secondly, if the well-known crucian predominantly lives in ponds, lakes, small rivers with a small current, then its new variety lives in the Volga, Akhtuba and the Don, in which the current velocity is quite noticeable.
