Burbot fishing

Burbot is the only representative of the cod family living in fresh waters. This is a cold-loving fish, showing activity at a water temperature of no higher than + 10 ° C, so in the summer it is almost impossible to catch it. The most favorable time for fishing is considered to be cold and inclement weather. Perhaps because of this, burbot is not so popular among fishermen.

It is impossible to confuse burbot with other fish. His body is long, spindle-shaped, tapering to the tail, covered with small scales firmly seated in the skin and a thick layer of thick mucus. The head is wide, strongly flattened, resembles the head of a frog, its mouth is large with many small teeth, there is one small antennae on the chin and another around the nostrils on the antenna. The color is grayish or olive green with dark brown spots and stripes. Eyes are small yellow, with dark pupils. Continue reading

Fishing for catfish in Primorye

I’ll make a reservation right away that the article will focus on rivers, because there are very few lakes in Primorye where catfish are caught (I certainly do not mean Hanka), but catfish live in every, even small, river. Another feature of Primorye is that catfish are caught in small sizes from 0.3 to 1.5 kg. Catching an individual more than 10 kg is a great success. Usually such monsters are found in the middle and lower reaches of Ussuri, Hanke, Razdolnaya. The larger the river, the greater the likelihood of catching krupnyak, and since in Primorye large rivers can be counted on the fingers of one hand, the likelihood of catching something worthwhile is small.

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.

Unfortunately, fly fishing articles published occasionally in fishing periodicals have the same flaw – they are written mainly for those who have already mastered this difficult method of fishing. 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.
