I would like to share with you my experience of trout fishing in our mountain rivers. Since in most cases, I prefer lures another bait, it will be just about them. Imagine a light with little depth roll with two in the bottom of the pit. What kind of bait to choose, as efficiently as possible to fishing on this promising place? The discovery of last season for me was voblerok from the company Duo Toto length of 42 mm in the form of a minnow. This lure is actively playing even with mild twitching and is suitable for fishing on areas with moderate currents and shallow. It differs quite good flight characteristics, both for its size.

So I come to this very tumbleweed Put Toto, perform the above casting pits, so that the lure was on the edge, use a light twitching. Out of fish — a miss, even a miss. Finally blow — and beautiful trout on a hook! Gently I am getting fish, shoot the hook, be sure to hand while soaking in cold running water, so the fish do not get burned because of the temperature difference, and releases it to the native element. That’s right, let go, the next time again to see this beauty, because the beautiful fish in my life

Life by the river

Murray and Jane Spencer swapped London for a laid-back life on the banks of the River Thames

When Murray Spencer and his wife Jane found out they were expecting a baby, they decided to up sticks and move from London to the countryside. ‘We used to live in a Victorian terrace in Hammersmith, but wanted to bring up our children (Ella, five, and Ben, two) in a more rural environment – somewhere they’d be able to climb trees, go out on their bikes and breathe clean air,’ says Murray. Their search centred on an Oxfordshire village, just an hour’s drive

THE WEIR

Conceived as a make- work project for unemployed men, built to help tame the raging waters of the South Saskatchewan River, the weir has been a gathering place for people in Saskatoon since construction began 84 years ago.

Like the Broadway Bridge, the weir, which dams the river just upstream of the CP Rail bridge at 33rd Street, was a child of the Dirty Thirties, when governments across the country looked for ways to cope with the problem of catastrophic unemployment and drought. In those days, unemployment was largely a municipal responsibility and by 1932, with one family

Riddle Ural Beaver

At the end of the XIX century. wood jungle, covering the slopes of the Southern and Middle Urals, lost in the wilderness and nicely furnished, like candles, spruce and fir trees in several girths of thickness and a couple of dozen meters leaving skyward, deep lakes with emerald-blue water, thundering rapids of big and small rivers, there were still almost unknown enlightened residents of European Russia.

PROLOGUE.

Road. Fees, as always, at the last moment before leaving. Hastily abandoning things in Germ bag and backpack — we start. Again, we feel the innermost rise when tickled inside, filling and explosion barely disguised glee bubbles of happiness — we escaped from the close embrace of the city. And outside rush familiar landscapes: first alternate small towns, small villages, then juicy Vologda fields that are replaced by forests of Karelia, and finally the proud Hibiny, lake surface, garrulous rivers and green hills. Kola Peninsula we were met with gray skies and rain wall. Such is the northern
