succumbed to advertising
This story happened on Bolshoy Martyn Lake, on one of the very hot and sultry days when the air seemed to thicken, became hot and still. And it lasted a week, if not more. This ultimately had to lead to something. Such periods of complete calm and abnormal heat usually end in hurricanes and floods. But that day everything was different on the lake. At least on this lake. And then I heard that the hurricane had felled the forest somewhere in the area of the Ilet River and on to the village of Krasnogorsky. But – all in order.
And on the boat you did not fly
In the morning Pasha and I caught perch
He dragged Reds and prickly “sailors” from the raft, and I was catching perch near the boat. I also needed a boat from time to time to check for stubs placed along the edge of a strip of water lilies, which stretched across the very middle of the lake, starting from the ashes of the former winter houses and dugouts in a clean open meadow, and ending with a “squiggle” of water lilies in the direction the opposite shore, where in general everything is overgrown with grass. I set the fly-hooks in front of the pine knoll, where Pasha and I had set up a parking lot with a tent. Continue reading
The summer period is distinguished by relative comfort compared to the conditions of ice fishing and overnight stays with a severe winter time, when twenty degrees of frost and howling snow blizzards are not uncommon. In the summer of all this is not, but has its own characteristics, which also have certain disadvantages and inconveniences.
Features of an overnight stay in summer
First of all, before going fishing it is necessary to inquire with the relevant authorities, has a high fire danger been declared? In addition to the call to the Ministry of Emergency Situations, these data can be obtained in the media, namely in the newspapers and on the Internet, where the main news of the region is usually duplicated in online versions of newspapers. If this is not done, then in the hot summer period, when it’s time to relax on the river, fish, bathe, fry kebabs, cook fish soup, you can get a substantial fine. And the positive emotions from the rest by the water will turn into negative emotions, that is, the mood will be completely spoiled. In addition, you will have to pay money for making a campfire and visiting the forest in a special fire prevention regime. If you can get a fine of one and a half to three thousand for violating the rules of making a campfire in the woods, then in a special period you can get penalties from four to five thousand. And this is for citizens. Continue reading
We will help the fishermen to understand the advertising mist that sellers let in to sell new baits, baits and gear. Are they catchy like we are told.
Nowadays, fishing advertising, pushing sales of new gear, baits, baits, usually presents them as “improving catches.” This is usually not a blatant lie, but it is impossible to call such statements true, but half the truth is not worth much for a fisherman, and the higher this awareness, the more and more often you fish.
As one famous satirist used to say – “how much to hang”? So how much does it improve catches? Always, everywhere, at all? And does it improve at all?

And I’m not interested if it doesn’t add in quantity, quality of catches, and I’m sure that I’m not alone in this, because there is plenty of interest directly in the fishing process. Continue reading
