In Moscow and the Moscow region, fishing enthusiasts can take advantage of 45 places for free fishing and 21 places with the possibility of paid fishing. All of them are marked on a special fisherman's map. The map can be found in the latest issue of AiF, where, in addition to addresses, there is information about where you can catch which fish. Also, beginners will benefit from the advice of experienced fishermen.
How to choose “cool” place
Choose “cool” the place is not so difficult — a little attention and patience. If the reservoir is unfamiliar, do not rush. First, you should look around and decide on the characteristic features. In the case when the water is smooth, and in one place there are ripples, most likely there is a shallow in this place. And pits and pools are usually distinguished by a darker shade of water.
Fish do not like areas of strongly blooming water. But the islands of floating vegetation at a distance from the coast, where there is depth, — promising points, especially in the heat.
On the river, you can often clearly see the boundary between the current and calm water, as well as the return line, where the water flows in the opposite direction. Very interesting places for catching both peaceful and predatory fish. In general, if any anomalies are noticeable on the water surface, it makes sense to start fishing here.
What tackle to use?
“If there is a fish, it will be caught” — this misconception is typical for many anglers. Athletes know: a mad bite is rare, and peaceful fish must be “persuaded”; delicate gear. Therefore, it is advisable to start fishing with leashes with a diameter of no more than 0.1 mm — the probability of bites is multiplied. And it’s worth taking a thicker one if the cliffs happen more often than the fish enters the replanting. The balance between delicacy and the number of bites — the key to success.
How to feed the fish?
You need to feed the fish pointwise. Carpet «bombing» — this is an extra consumption of bait, and the distribution of fish over a larger area. It is better to cast the hook first, and then lure. Because not only on rivers, but also on stagnant reservoirs, the float often blows to the side. And the place where he stops is not where he is fed.
The same applies to feeder fishing. It would seem that the feeder is always next to the hook, but in order for the fish to approach the point, it is often necessary to throw more than one feeder there. Therefore, we choose a landmark on the opposite bank, clip the line on the spool and cast.
How to save the catch?
A cage or kukan is present in the arsenal of most anglers. And how to bring the catch to the house on a hot day? A plastic bottle of frozen water taken for fishing — a simple remedy. Put in several bags from the store inserted into each other, it will not melt until the evening. Usually, a one and a half liter bottle is enough to quench your thirst with melt water and bring the fish in the best possible way.
Another option to save the catch — sprinkle it with salt. But what if there is no salt, no ice, no bucket? Burdocks, nettle, sedge or cattail — better than nothing. The fish lined with them has a chance to keep its presentation.
Where can I get the bait?
The fish are biting, but the bait is over? Worms can be dug up in the roots of trees and bushes growing near the reservoir. Best on the side facing the water. Worms are also found in the roots of nettles and in pits covered with leaves and stems, on wet patches. earth. In burdocks you can find insect larvae. The plants inhabited by them are distinguished by the presence of a hole in the leg.
Dragonfly and caddis larvae also help. These are magical baits: fish almost always react to them, especially perch and ide. Even when with other nozzles it’s completely besklyovye. The caddisfly crawls along the bottom in shallow water and in the windows of underwater vegetation in a tubular house made of sand, leaves and stems. If there are snags and stones at the bottom, then many larvae can be obtained from under them: wrap algae on a stick and choose bait from them. There are more of them, and they are better visible than in thickets of aquatic plants.
How to fold a rod in the heat?
Usually fishing starts on a cool morning. Have you noticed that during the day in the heat, a telescopic rod cannot be folded? It is enough to immerse it in water, and in most cases the problem is easily solved. It happens the other way around: the joint of the knees must be heated over the flame. Just physics.
Should I hide the sting in the bait?
The age-old question: should I hide the sting of the hook in the bait/bait? The vast majority of experienced anglers do not mask the hook. Firstly, this does not affect bites, and secondly, an open sting allows you to avoid idle hooks, because the bait does not prevent the hook from catching.
The size of the hook is more important here: it must match the size of the bait. In other words, less is more.
