chub fishing

Browsing

This time I went river fishing in the afternoon with a minimal amount of fishing gear and used earthworms I dug along the river as bait. Earthworms were very easy to find. I used a very simple attachment (lead for the pencil drop shot technique and a larger hook for the big barbel). I didn’t even expect any special catch, maybe what kind of chub was the day more than successful for me, as I caught 8 chubs and 1 barbel. All the fish are released back into the river.

Enjoying autumn colors by the river, watching the last autumn flowers, bees, listening to birds, breathing fresh air, … and waiting for a fish bite is for me relaxation, calmness, inspiration, meditation in this stressful world.

“The best time to go fishing is when you can get away,” Robert Traver.


I was looking for earthworms for bait first.

I think most fish couldn’t resist this delicious protein snack 😎.

Ready to cast.

After about a few minutes, this beauty was caught. one quick video and then the chub swam back into the river.

A few pieces of basic fishing gear I had in my backpack. Quite enough for successful fishing on the river.

Snags.

🍁🍂 Autumn is here 🍁🍂.

For a bonus catch I was rewarded towards evening by this beauty 😍.

Even this young chub could not resist the delicious (for fish) earthworms. I don’t know how he managed to eat such a bite.

Till next time …

Are you looking for a cheap fishing rod for spinning or are you just a beginner in this fishing technique? I think this is a great rod not only for beginners but also for those who have been fishing for a long time. Despite the fact that a cosmetic defect is found on this fishing rod, I am not sorry about the purchase, as I have already found such cosmetic defects in more expensive fishing rods.

PROS

  • price
  • light in weight
  • sensitive tip
  • guides without inner lining
  • nice design

CONS

  • only available in some fishing shops (Europe); at least I did not find it in other countries outside the Europe

The river is waiting for me 😎

Spring came, and so did all the fish from the deep pools of the river, where they survived the winter (at least most fish). The water level of the river was excellent and I could already start fly fishing.

Barbed hook (I later squeezed barb with pliers).


So let’s try to catch chub on a freshly tied squirmy wormy fly.

When I was here two days ago without fishing gear there were a lot of chub and other fish, now no fish activity (as usual). When I was back here a few days later there were a lot of chubs (as if they knew I didn’t have fishing gear with me) 🙄.



Small chub attacked the squirmy wormy 3 times before being caught on the hook.

In addition to fish in the river ((which are good signs that clean water is in the river), there are other aquatic creatures that are also food for the fish.

To some fishing spots I had to crawl and climb through nettles and thorns but it was worth it.

Amazing what a jump of a chub out of the water.

Natural wild fish


These chubs in the river are amazing acrobats.

Pink Squirmy Wormy

Using the barbless hook is very useful as it is quickly released from the mouth of the fish.

Catch and release

Goodbye, see you another time.

Despite the fact that the chubs and of course other fish species were not in the mood for flies it was a very nice day by the river. Nevertheless, I am more than happy with fly fishing as I have caught quite a few chubs (they are still happily swimming in the river).

Very simple and with a little imagination we can add some more sparkle and action to the spinner lures.

We do not need professional tying equipment and material, beginner equipment is just fine. Fly tying on treble hook does not have to be as precise as tying trout flies, salmon, etc.

For fly dressed treble hook in this blog we need: fly tying vise, scissors, bobbin, thread, flashes, glue and of course spinner lure. Cheap and great material is tinsel and angel hair for Christmas tree decoration.


Video Catch more fish – Fly dressed treble hook (spinner) on my YouTube channel, for more click below 👇.



The photos below show you how to tie on triple hook in a simple way, without complication.

  • Prepare your hook in vise.


  • Attach a thread a few times around.
  • Add material to hook.
  • With scissors we cut the length that suits us best.


  • Turn the hook around and repeat the process.
  • different sparkle materials can be used
  • we repeat the process again


  • I finish the thread with a hand whip finish or with whip finish fly tying tool
  • add some glue to finish


And we are ready to fish for aquatic predators 🙂 …
