You can not let anglers on cars to the rivers

Lawmaking is a very complicated matter. The theme of the water protection zone has recently become the talk of the town. Various authors in social networks, on the pages of newspapers and magazines are hotly discussing the current Water Code of the Russian Federation and the legacy of the Russian government’s decree on water protection zones of water bodies, which 23 years ago, being prime minister, V. Chernomyrdin signed. And in 2007, at the suggestion of Prime Minister V. Zubkov, he was, as it were, declared invalid. And various amendments there have fastened. But much of what was in that edition remained in the present Water Code of the Russian Federation. Of course, any changes made. Well, a little there tsiferki changed, added something.

May 2019 on a small river

The peculiarity of fishing in May 2019. The rise to spawn. Chance to catch a chub. Spawning ban.

Apparently, the snakes crawled out to bask and indulge in love, since the mating period they fall on May, and the vipers are not very happy about the mass appearance of tourists, tourists and fishermen on the river. Judging by the black color, it is Nikolsky’s viper. Continue reading

Viun is an interesting fish

Description of the loach. Where it is found and how it is caught (gear, bait, time).

On fishing happens a lot of interesting moments that are remembered for a lifetime. So, I remember the case when I caught the loach for the first time in my life. I didn’t intend specifically for this fish, but when catching a crucian from the bottom, this fish appears quite often in the fisher’s catches, especially if fishing is carried out on a worm and some other bait animals.

Just a few words about the loach
The body of the loach is elongated, and in this sense it is in the water at first a bit like a small snake. The specimens I had to catch were no longer than 11 centimeters in length, although there are data in the literature on larger specimens. Continue reading
