Lure of the Month: Salmo Rattlin Sting

The legendary model of Salmo, the Sting, has been one of the most popular sander, asp and pike lures since its appearance in 2001. The Rattling Sting, which is considered the successor to the old (floating) and the sinking version of the Sting, isn’t widely known among anglers. However, we believe that this catchy, suspending…

Focus on Angling – Let’s Go to Lupa!

With my colleague Józsi Ács we usually plan our summer sessions on mine lakes as in this type of deep water the heat is much more bearable, and the fish are more active. The water of these lakes is fresher and cooler thanks to the depth and the springs flowing out from the ground. I’d…

Feeder World Record and Dream Cast over 200 m

Excellent results in the Hungarian distance casting championship.   This type of national distance casting competition was first organized in Hungary last year. Distance casting with feeder rods as an official competition was also organized here for the first time. The categories refer to the length of fishing rods (maximum 400 cm and 430 cm) and the terminal…

Lead Wobblers Against Predators

If you want to try your hand at spinning, first and foremost, you need to get some basic equipment such as spinning rod, reel, line, and proper lures for the target species. As in many other cases, there are priorities. We could continue the list with boxes, carryalls, clothing, footwear, and all kinds of tackle to…

White-tailed eagle

The plumage and beak of the younger birds are black-brown. It flies slowly and majestically. Its voice, which is high and quick, can be…

My Favorite Summer Aromas

  Approximately half a year ago, in the middle of winter, I presented aromas that I prefer using during my cold water sessions. Back then I received many requests to present the aromas that I use in warm water. As I try to fulfill these requests, I decided to write an article on warm water aromas….

Big bait, big fish?

It’s not easy to catch a big carp on the feeder in spring. Although the carp are becoming more active, their appetite is still not the best when the water’s temperature is barely 10 °C. If you want to be successful under these conditions, you should choose your groundbait carefully and, last but not least,…

The One – Free Fall leader

I think we can all agree that the last meter of our tackle requires a lot of attention in a boilie session. Your rig should be as effective as possible. It’s important that we use accessories and shock lines that don’t scare the target species we’re trying to catch. Cautious carp and grass carp can…

Over 600

I arrived at Maconka with my sibling for a 36-hour session. I made a feed specifically for warming up water. I chose a mix of Red and Black groundbait, which had already proved its effectiveness both in the summer and when the water was cooling down. First I used only 1-1 kg of groundbait, which…

Focus on the Benzár Coated Wafter

Since I started dealing with fishing more seriously, very often I’ve used soluble hook baits more successfully than any other baits. My first truly big carp and outstanding competition results also proved that soluble baits are very effective. Quite often I was more successful with my handmade soluble baits than those who put their trust…
