The story about fishing on lake Volgo

История о рыбалке на озере ВолгоMe (the story will lead one of the authors) is often reminded of a wonderful incident that happened with my friend Victor on a fishing trip a year ago on the Volga. In two boats we slowly crept to one of the many shallow creeks. The weather was wonderful, although under the evening sky on the horizon tightened gray clouds. Thunderstorm, most likely, could erupt at night, so we took our time on base, despite the fact that the Cape was left in the car.

We anchored next to you, turning backs to each other, and immediately began to sh in areas of water along the grass. I teased the predator long silver “long”, while Victor chose somehow ordinary domestic “spoons” type “Moscow”.

At first the advantage was clearly on my side: the pair pound jacks already bucked at the bottom of a well-worn “omega”. And I was about to call Victor to show off the catch, before dropping the pike in the tank, suddenly heard behind, in the distance, loud and sharp slap on the water. I turned around. The first thing I saw was pressed to the water finely vibrating the tip of a spinning friend. And then I noticed how tense the back of a mighty Victor. My friend – the strong man, straightens a bent ice pick, a slight movement of the hands. But then!.. I feared for Viktor, knowing that on the other end of the line under the water lurks a real monster. If Victor before leaving for the evening dawn would not bet on the spinning super fishing line diameter of 0.3 mm, than made me laugh, it is likely to hold now on the line would have been certain.

At this time, the clutch does not creaked, as usual, and just screamed, probably out of admiration for the power of the enemy. As he tried instantly sweaty Victor to lift the spinning over the water, the good of his efforts was not enough. Brake clutch continued to scream, stretched a string line was ready to break at any moment. And then a miracle happened.

First, the tip of the rod slowly but surely crept up to the frowning before the storm the sky. Then my friend, bewildered was in an unequal struggle, has become higher and higher to raise the spinning, pumping the fish. I even at a distance felt a sigh of relief Victor. There is no doubt that now he is this monster can handle it.

Strange, but fish were moving in the direction of our boats almost without a struggle. And if I did not see how rapidly a moment ago slipped away into the water line, you would think that we are moving up from the bottom log. I have long put aside your old “Abu” and silently watched the scene.

Озеро Волго Тверская область Victor was sitting in the boat now almost sideways to me, turning towards open water. I saw the fishing line gradually filled the remaining on the spool notch. Clutch occasionally creaked, but now weak and rare. We were the last meters. Once under the surface of the water began to emerge the outlines of a predator, Victor reached for the landing net, but soon realized that he is useless – the fish just won’t fit into it.

It was a real monster with a length of 1.5 m: dark, almost black back, huge head. The distance between man and fish has become critical. Both stopped. The ellipse rods formidable bow tie stood on the bluish background of the forest. Those few seconds while your opponents silently studied each other, seemed like an eternity. Bagaric would be the moment! But, first, we have the boat hook was not, and secondly, unlikely to be pike agreed to move at least a few inches to the boat.

The first recovered fish: unexpectedly rapid for such a big reversal, a powerful tail strike, explosion spray, okatyshi from head to toe my friend, and again painfully familiar nasty song clutch of the exhausted coil.

Pike torpedo flashed past my “omega”, then suddenly changed direction, leaping almost on poltulovischa out of the water, jerked in the air a terrible huge head, freed from the gleaming steel spinners, then angrily flopped in his element and was gone forever. About the mental state of my friend, I will not tell. I can only say that to talk about that fishing for some reason he does not like.

That’s what sometimes things happen with our brother angler. And not in the lower reaches of the Volga, not in the Siberian wilderness, and not so far from Moscow! Oh, you always have to be prepared for the unexpected meeting. Then inadvertently ask themselves the question: “maybe the Volga starts with the Volga?”
