How to catch a large carp – chasing a trophy

Probably, there is not a single avid angler who would say with honest eyes that he does not like carp fishing. After all, it was small carpans and carps that once at a young age delighted us so, only occasionally getting caught in the hook with the ubiquitous carpentry and crucian carp. Catching a large carp is not an easy task, but extremely interesting and exciting!

Since then, little has changed in this regard, the only thing is that the gear has become an order of magnitude more reliable and high-tech, and the fish is more cunning and biased towards the nozzles.

Hazel grouse never sits on tops of trees and even during feeding is usually located in the middle parts of the crown. Walks along horizontal branches nimbly, while bending the front of the body and stretching the tail. During feeding, often sits on thin branches, abundantly hung with earrings, and freely and deftly Continue reading

Spring duck hunt

Starlings and larks began to sing, which means that the long-awaited spring has come. Especially with impatience duck hunters are waiting for her. Already in March, they begin to prepare equipment in order to go fishing with the first appearance of these birds: they paint the stuffed animals, caulk the boat, plant ducks and drakes, and check weapons and cartridges.

Spring hunting is the most anticipated, as it does not open every year. It depends on the past winter. In the spring hunting is allowed only on birds and if winter was harsh and unfavorable for the wintering of birds, then hunting is prohibited completely or in some areas of our country.

And so the snow melted, large and small ponds were collected. Only then birds – geese, ducks, begin to fly in, Continue reading
