How to recognize which fish is being towed?

Each fish fights a little differently. However, a moment after a jam, you can almost always orientate yourself, is it a pike, pike perch, trout, or, for example, grayling.
We, anglers, are known for storytelling, storytelling bordering on exaggeration. No wonder then, that once in one of my articles I wrote, that “I almost always recognize when we are hauling, what fish am I dealing with and before I see it ", my editor-in-chief immediately "took me on a hook" and asked for more detailed explanations. It was the best way, to provoke me to write the following article. You can recognize many species of fish just by the way they are bitten. Endless bouncing of the float, light dripping and popping to the surface, moving a few centimeters back and forth, once in the other way lets suppose, that our red worm had just caught an interest in the rope. After the float has vigorously disappeared diagonally, we can prepare ourselves, that in a moment there will probably be a very long straight departure, and the escaping carp will show us, what does it mean to tow a speeding underwater locomotive. Fishing technique used, type of bait, weather, the season and the type of fishery itself make it much easier to guess, what kind of fish is it fighting at the other end of the line. I can only say this much about the fishery, that bream of the same size fights a little differently in the lake, or quite differently below the dam or in a place with a relatively calm current.

My sons' first roach.

Adult fish always test the action of the rod, sometimes even to the breaking point, and on this basis you can already draw some conclusions, on the other hand, the nervous fluttering on the hook and the gentle bending of the tip always mean small pieces. Both my sons also mastered the art of recognizing fish very quickly after a jam. I already knew during our first fishing trip together, that on the cry of "roach!” I don't have to come with the landing net. I was proud to watch, how my two heirs to the throne are becoming more and more avid anglers every minute, and the most dimensional hurdles land on the shore. The big roach fights in a very distinctive way. He bounces briefly on his side, it often changes the direction of its escape. However, it does not take longer than one minute. Later, even the largest roach is allowed to be towed in a controlled manner to the shore or a boat, and at least fights for life until the very end, inserting it into the landing net is not too difficult. If we fish near reeds or water lilies, and right below the surface, it is a float that slants away under water that almost always means a rudd. This fish fights almost as well as a roach, although sometimes it gets an impression, that she is a little stronger. Bream after jam always gives the impression of being very surprised. It can easily be dragged a meter or two out of the baited spot. Only later does he "introduce himself" to the angler by sending him signals in Morse code. In the river, the bream during hauling lines itself sideways across the current, and that its sides have a large surface, one gets the impression, that it is a very large fish. Bream weighing over 1,5 kg also try short and quite vigorous escapes, after which they always line up sideways to the angler.
