Yes, you read that right, it's my first gobbler trout fishing. I said in the article Pssst, pssst, Chiki-Chiki, Bachi-Bachi, Hila-Hila, Fla-Fla, Pilo-Pilo, Plu-Plu, Mezashi, gume Mustad, ki, muah, aaaah! that: "Aji Worm series lures Bachi-Bachi, Chiki-Chiki, Hila-Hila, Fla-Fla, Pilo-Pilo, Plu-Plu they are exactly what you need for perch, even if the Japanese at Mustad designed them for sea fishing in rock fishing style. I'm probably also going to clean. And to the trout. And to any fish that feeds on small things. But that remains to be seen, tried, gone fishing, that we have all the time at our disposal. We're worse off with the waters and the fish, but that's another story."
New rubbers, old rods and reels, fishing for trout with rubbers
Well, seen, tried, went fishing, in perch and pike they are murderous, it was also scored cleanly, and more recently I had, by chance or not, a great game of trout fishing with gummies. Why do I say random? Because it was the first time I fished for gummy trout, somehow forced by the situation. Why or not? Because in trout fishing games I always have rubbers with me and a perfect combo for that, old lady 20-year-old Gloomis rod rejuvenated by Torescu and a Daiwa Luvias 1003 reel from the days of the contests LRS they were at the level of inflatable boats, ultralight fishing, microwobblers, microfish. But I've been using them lately, printing presses leave no room for other lures when you are in the right place, at the right time, on the right water that has the right fish. How did jig fishing fit in with trout though?
All Slovakia, no barbell, just fishing for trout with gummies
Too bad about the mountain, the rain, well, I went fishing, the water was tight, the trout were chasing the spinning wheels, but without completion. Yes, we are in Slovakia again, this time not at barbel, but for a new series of films F&H targeting trout and the upland part of the Garam River. And implicitly fishing for trout with gums, because that's what the article is called. I wink at Article who catches trout after trout on an imitation worm gum, I follow him from the cast, to the lure in the current, to the drill. I put the rotary aside, grab the old combo above, open the box of Mustad Aji Worm gummies and microjigs and trying to figure out the cubic equation.
Combinations and equations in gummy trout fishing
Change gum after gum, weights on jigs, I try to feel the river, THREAD in the current, the evolution of gummies and trout, finally, through a kind of combination of nymph fishing mixed with fishing on the Danube with a jig, I feel that something is going well for me. A short and dry attack confirms the solution of the equation and the first trout lands in the lie. The recipe still works, fishing for trout with gummies is a super fun game. I admit, however, that I have not renounced the rotary ones. See more on video, as soon as possible. Slovakia ready? And the barbells? Well, it's normal that I caught barbells and cleni again, you can't help it on Garam, new episodes are coming in 2023.
Conclusions and tips fishing for gummy trout
I didn't think I'd ever admit it, but yes, gummy trout fishing has managed to beat my eternal and fascinating spinning wheel. And the wobblers. I'll pay more attention to fishing with trout gummies in the future and I'll come back with technical details, I promise.
I think I've written and said this 100 times before. Every lure has its moment and can bring you an unforgettable game, as long as you fish it with confidence. When you have confidence, you fish much more carefully and much better than with a lure you are using for the first time. Be it Mustad or any other brand.
A perfect combo in any style of fishing is the one you feel best with. Of course as long as you catch and fish. In my case, I have yet to find a formidable replacement in ultralight battles for a 25-year-old Gloomis rod (1/16 – 5/16 oz, fancy) paired with a 15-plus-year-old Luvias 1003 reel (first model) and Stroft threads (this is Higlander, ageless, I think I was born with Stroft on the hazel stick).
Let's put the tools aside, basically localization is the most important. There is a saying, where you catch fish with wood from the forest. Then comes the connection, with water, with nature, with the equipment. If you go through all these steps, you will know what you have to do. And you will catch more fish and more satisfaction. If you still need tips, see at Alex Bucur.
PS1: Come on, I got caught up in the trout and I forgot to tell you that by the way Bachi-Bachi, Chiki-Chiki, Hila-Hila, Fla-Fla, Pilo-Pilo, Plu-Plu they entered the Mustad gum family and Aji Paddle Tail, Aji Finesse Micro, Aji Finesse Chiki Crawl Tail, Mezashi Rock Lobster. What will these go to? It remains to be seen, tried, go fishing, that we have all the time at our disposal...
PS2: Did you know that Mustad gummies…
No, enough about the tires. But if we are still in the category did you know that... let me tell you something about Mustad. In the beginning was the hook.
𝗠𝘂𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗱 has been producing fishing hooks since 1832 in a factory near Gjøvik, Norway.
In 1877 Mathias Topp designed and made "The Hook Maker" - the machine where the wire is inserted on one side and the hooks come out on the other. The plans for this car have been kept secret until today.
𝗠𝘂𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗱 has produced over 60,000 models of hooks, the most used in sport and industrial fishing.
Today, 1 in 4 fishing hooks is made by 𝗠𝘂𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗱.
In 1950, 50% from the production of fishing hooks was made by 𝗠𝘂𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗱.
The company 𝗠𝘂𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗱 is present in over 160 countries.
In many parts of the world, the word Mustad is used to define the fishing hook
The hooks produced by 𝗠𝘂𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗱 cover all sport fishing disciplines, as well as industrial and traditional fishing.
𝗠𝘂𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗱 is the only company in the world that controls the entire process of making a fishing hook, from the production of the wire to the sharpening process.
Pssst, pssst, Chiki-Chiki, who, I kissed you, aaaah!
