Trout Union Cup 2016 Romania: the first day of competition

According to the fishermen, especially those trout anglers, no fishing competition can be compared with the shore fishing in the style of "stream trout. Considering its near gambling passions inflame and excitement .

Fast sportsmen moving, lightning - fast response to fish behavior or actions of rivals… "Help of the audience" in the face of dispatchers or just spectators, pleasant applauses after another fish netting, work "under the gun" of cameras, camcorders and stares of fellow anglers, judges, and bystanders. And the constant struggle for every fish. That’s the stream trout sport fishing.

Screenplay breakdown

But sometimes nature decides instead of us the way it should be at certain time and at certain place. Perhaps a little bit different comparing human forecast. Today, on May 7th it was found that "a little bit" – is a small word.

During the training, held on Friday, athletes from all countries could easily catch trout. And everybody got ready to fast and active fishing. But in just a few minutes before "entrance into the zone" signal - when the sportsmen begin to take their places from the starting point - there was a real cataclysm. Downpour "wall", lightning and hail.

In order not to endanger the fishermen and judges, the organizers decided to postpone the start of the tour for an hour. Sometimes things do happen at the fishing competition - nature does not follow orders .

One more thing that was not expected - the Romanian sportsmen choose and prepare the venue in the city of Odorheiu Secuiesc because of the fact that the river Tarnawa has the adjustable dam above the city. That’s why the water level slightly depends on weather conditions. Ones Romanian colleagues even held competitions after three days of torrential rains. But when the participants came to the starting place for the new appointed time, everyone saw that river totally changed. The water level due to the dam regulation, increased not much. However, the color of Tarnava turned into "cocoa" or "coffee with milk".

The first starts showed that the most pessimistic predictions about fishing in "coffee" water come true. Look, in the first start of Zone C no fish was caught. In zone A Alexei Shanin distinguished himself, the only one who caught such a precious trout! In the Zone B it was a little better, but even here 23 sportsmen caught only 12 fish. The most effective was the zone A, where 18 fish were caught.

The organizers decided to postpone the start of nearly two hours: there was a chance that the river to get cleared a little. But as the experience of the tournament in 2015 in Slovakia told, this "little" is enough to make the trout, as sportsmen say, "snapped the toggle switch" and fish began to feed.

Fish in the river did not leave the competition zones: it periodically showed up on the surface and jumped out, and some individuals were very close to the bank, barely moving their fins. Many contacts were marked with fish - hitting, empty takes. And, of course, in this situation annoying loses.

But, unlike the situation in Slovakia, another second move of the tour start brought no results. The situation was not improved.

It was decided not to move tours time longer more - storm clouds circling not far from the city were about to burst with morning cataclysm.

And the fishermen decided to finish the game, no matter how difficult it was! After playing by the new rules established by the nature it was extremely hard. Not all the baits were accepted by trout and not so many takes happened, the fish was to literally persuade, to urge for take. But in order to convince it, you had to read the river and be able to find the trout, without seeing trout in the muddy water. The bait must be presented properly to assure a take. And, perhaps, it was necessary to have a little more luck than others exercising persistence and sport insistence.

Best of all that " play by touch and by experience" was well done by Russian team. Artem Mishin was the first in his zone . Alexei Shanin, shared the first place with the Slovakia -1 team member Marcin Peteriz . Alexander Vorobyov, who managed to catch 3 trout in such extraordinary for such conditions of the fourth start, became 4th in his zone. This provided the Russian team with a good amount of places - 19.5. Separation in 11 places from the nearest competitors - 1 International Team(remember, "international" team did not take place in team standings) and 14 places from Slovakia Team 1 , all that give a very good start for the next day!

Two Romanian teams - Romania Romania 1 and 2 performed well at home . with the amount of places of 35 and 36.5 points respectively. In their field, they were able to get together and catch the right fish in front of rivals.

Other results - in the table the first day of competitions: individual and team (link)

With this foul biting more fish were still managed to catch with soft baits. Sounds paradoxically, but the exact presentation of soft plastic worked for a greater number of athletes than the "combing" with powerful playing spinners.

"Unexpected violation."

Also a case occurred in the zone A, which under different set of circumstances could be found curious. But, it is true, with a certain stretch of the imagination!

Athlete of Belarus team, as well as "the chairman of the counting commission" of all tournaments of the Trout Union Eugene Sedakov ... caught a fish on a hook with a barb! But this serious crime in fact seems to be, putting it light, not a planned just ridiculous contingency. Which received, however, serious consequences in the form of sportsman’s penalty points. Eugene is now at the end of the table on tour results, after the teams captains decision and for the first day his amount of fish is -1.

Seeing the river and realized that he would not have to fish with all that prepared in the evening, Eugene threw few heavier jig heads with soft baits into his box . First cast with one of that set brought him a trout. The judge decided to check the presence of a barb ... and found it on the hook. In fact the barb was pressed on the hook –sportsmen often come so and it is not prohibited if the barb is not acting.

But the hook had not passed a simple test in which the fabric is pierced with hook sting and must freely get back – the barb was not thoroughly pressed. And with a first quick check it was not so noticeable. And the other two jig leashes were really good. This is both a serious and unfortunate set of circumstances almost cost the competitor the disqualification.

Postscriptum

And the "culprit" of dramatic cloudy water was soon found... it was a small Brădeşti creek, which is a few kilometers above the confluence of Tarnawa river turned into a small, but real "mudflow". And it was enough that water of Tarnawa river is dimmed and the fish went on strike.

But anglers do not despair, and hope for tomorrow!
