Ebro 2016 – extreme testing

Ebro 2016 – extreme testing

The EBRO River… It would be hard to find a better place in Europe where in a short amount of time you can face off against record catfish, carp or zander. There is also a chance of running across the legendary black bass or a really big perch! At the beginning of September I had the pleasure of part...

Breathable chest-waders and wading shoes

“There’s no such thing as bad weather, there are only badly dressed anglers.” I confirm the truth of this saying every time I go fishing in difficult weather conditions, in which many people wouldn’t even consider leaving the house, let alone go searching for fish. Nothing discourages from fishing l...

Mikado Rod Pod Fourliner

I enjoy short stays at the water – such fast and unplanned trips often bring unexpectedly good results. Whenever the weather is favorable (the wind blows from the right direction) I pack the equipment and get to the water. I pick fisheries I know well, in which I know where and how to fish. In orde...

Test of Kamisori Perch 240 cm up to12 g

The titular rod has been with me since the beginning of the season. It has been a great tool for light fishing. First perches, trouts, and first spring chases after chub-ides. But the real baptism of fire came during a very short trip. Short, but intense and full of big fish – but I’ll tell this sto...

A landing net for fly fishing… and more

A small handy landing net becomes a more and more popular accessory, both among fly fishing and spinning enthusiasts. In some fisheries, such as certain sections of mountain rivers, having such a landing net is even officially regulated. I personally never leave for any fly fishing trip without one....

Mikado’s polarized sunglasses

Everyone knows how important details are in fishing. Even the smallest swivel or linking ring can make or break you. And what about a rod, a reel, or a line? Polarized glasses have just been “promoted” to this second category of angling equipment. Not so long ago they were treated as a mere addition...

Versatile Territory CT 390/3.5lb

The culmination of every fishing competition is drawing the starting places. This is the element that has the most influence on your chances of success in the event. This time Zibi and I (who took part in the competition instead of Adrian) drew the windward bank, which we were happy about. We typica...

My first time

The carp season typically opens once water temperature reaches the magical level of 6-8 degrees. Those less patient start even earlier, often with good chances of success. Carps’ feeding in colder seasons is limited to the necessary minimum, so it’s important that the small amount of bait you use, w...

Cat Territory in the field

Cat Territory in the field

Thanks to the generosity of Mikado I received two catfish rods to test in the methods I typically use.  The first one was Cat Territory Troll & Spin 50-180 gram, 270 cm long – quite a long two-piece spinning which, as the name suggests, should be especially attractive for people who use artifici...

KENDO SHINE – first impressions

When I got the new KENDO SHINE rod in July, thanks to MIKADO, I didn’t expect that I will start testing it on Vistula. The water level on the river has been low since June. Even the autumn rainfall didn’t cause a significant increase. The slower current and shallower fisheries opened up new opportun...
