Special features of a fishing day: Morning greeted us with a light frost, unusual and unexpected after the previous 10-degree warming at the weekend, so we had to warm up by drinking hot herbal tee and slotting a few holes in quite thick ice. However, the morning bites from large rainbows were quite rough and showed us that the fishing day might be very good. A pair of nice trouts “looked” on the ice and one real monster has broken the line.

Around 10 a.m. has started a snowfall and fish suddenly stopped biting at all. So, rainbow trout is not a roach, which admire snowflakes…. Due to above mentioned reason we decided to make a pause for lunch and visited a traditional czech restaurant situated just nearby. In an hour or so we came back on the water reinforced by delicious czech cusine. And finally we had a pleasure to meet a few more amazing colorful trouts including one almost two feet long real monster female full of caviar, which was proudly presented with shaking hands in front of camera lenses 🙂
