|The report on the Open Championship Badger Cup 2003 |
On 18th – 19th January 2003 on the ice of Lake Hepoyarvi, fishermen showed their skills in ice trolling competing in the Open City Championship for the Badger Cup. There were 12 teams of 3 people. The participating teams arrived not only from St. Petersurg, but from Moscow, the Moscow region (Yubileiny), Novgorod the Great and Karelia. ...
|Kuningatar, the Hit of 2001|
I saw this spoon for the first time early in 2001 when I received samples of Lindroos products for testing. The strange configuration of the bait was striking. I had already seen a similar device, though that one had been home-made. My teacher in winter baiting of perches, Valera Parfyonov, had used such a Kuningatar, too. The hand-made Kuningatar was called an "airplane" and was very efficient in shallow waters on the first ice....
|A Faulty Valve Change. |
Most valve breakages are caused by mechanical damage. Just imagine – your boat is deflated after a fishing trip. Your friends are helping you to pack it away. And accidentally someone treads on the valve, under which a rock lies. It is hardly possible to hear the crack in such a situation… ...
|Testing of the Sonar GKF-02|
The sonar was tested during training before the All-Russian Spinning Competition Saratovskaya Blesna (the Saratov Lure) on the Volga near Saratov.
The sonar does not depict the bottom soil structure very clearly. However, it clearly shows all the obstacles such as snags, rocks and edges. ...

|A Few Words about Model 76|
Everybody knows that navigators can be good and … very well. In which group should we include the new model from GARMIN - GPS 76? It might be initially assumed that the new model must inherit from its predecessors only the best features and introduce some new ones. Let us check this. For this purpose, let us take the instrument and go to the Pavlovsk area in order to mix business with pleasure....
|Six "Horses" Weighing 20 kg|
Before this model appeared, there had been few of our fishers or hunters who could boast to their friends that they had bought a 6 h.p. engine. There is nothing inexplicable here. Not many people will take a decision to buy an engine of such power weighing about 31 kg, while a 15 h.p. engine has the weight of about 34 kg. And what will you say about the new model Capri 6 weighing 20 kg?...
|"Veхilar"! - a Dash, a Strike… Here It Is!|
I would like to share my impression of the Vexilar FL 8SLT and Vexilar FL-18 depth/fish finders tested by me. My first acquisition was the FL 8SLT depth/fish finder, which is well-known and, judging by references and information in the Internet, well-tested in other countries....
|The AirFish inflatable boat weights just 29 kg|
I have always dreamt about a boat for shallow water. A boat that would not take up too much space in a car, and would be light enough for me to carry it to the water, and would be easy to assemble.
A common inflatable boat with air deck (rigid inflatable bottom) is not bad. However, though it is quite big on the outside, there is not much space inside. And suddenly I found a motor boat fully made of the AirDeck material (common boats have bottom made of this material). ...
