Catch and release fishing technique
As most fishermen know, it is necessary to do an effective technique to catch and release the fish. It is necessary to avoid excessive fatigue and reduce fish handling activities to the minimum. This reduces the damage of skin and mucus layers on the skin, ligaments around the mouth, as well as gills. When catching fish by hand it is necessary to put a hand in water in order to avoid damage to the skin (it is known that the skin is susceptible to fungal infection). Larger specimens should be caught with one hand directly in the vicinity of the tail, with the other hand should hold the fish itself. While holding the fish under water, you mustn’t touch the gills or lift mud from the bottom. Use the crused barb hooks and that way it is easier to release the fish. Use the net in order to avoid withdrawal of fish in shallow waters over stones or rocks. While preparing for taking photos or recording the video you should keep the fish underwater. The main goal is not to keep the fish out the water for more than ten seconds. The fish which is caught should be released at the point without strong currents where the fish can recover and regain their senses. If you have followed the procedure, the fish should leave in a few seconds
When would be the best time to come for fishing on Tara River?
The answer to this question depends on the fishermen himself. Basically, any time of the year is good. The river brings peace and good mood. If you want to spend one part of the summer holidays fishing trout and grayling, we are recommending one of the summer months. Fishing season for trout begins in April and lasts until October. Fishing season for grayling starts in June and lasts until April. If you want to catch huchen fish (lat. Hucho hucho), the fishing season starts in April. During the process of preparation for the winter, the bigger species of grayling starts feeding at the end of September and October. The river will be all yours at that period and you will have a great chance to catch bigger species. If you want to go fishing for huchen fish, the queen of the water, and use the spinning method of fishing, the best time is August and September. Winter period is ideal for fishing, even though it is not popular because of the weather conditions and year vacations
