Useful information for beginner anglers and examiners

It's a good time, and with it the fishing season. You can meet more and more people concentrating in silence, sitting in a camping chair near the waterfront. But what do you need for a successful and enjoyable fishing? For beginners, Norbert Puskás, the executive president of the Vas County Association of Sport Fishing Associations, helps.

Before you start, it doesn’t hurt to be aware of the ground rules of this hobby. The most important thing is the issue of a fishing license. “Child anglers do not need a state fishing exam until they are 14 years old, but it is advisable for them and their parents to study the free online fishing exam curriculum, in which fish species and rules can be learned in detail,” the executive president began the presentation.

However, youth and adult anglers already have to take a state fishing exam, which will be free of charge from 2019 onwards. The exam, which consists of a written test and oral fish species recognition, must be applied for in advance at the association. The most important information about the exam can be found under the article.

Fishing licenses can be obtained from the member associations of the Vas County Association of Sport Fishing Anglers' Associations. The list of member organizations can be viewed on the website under the menu item of the Association, but the staff of the Federal Office is also happy to help you find a nearby fishing association at 06 / 94-506-835 or by e-mail at info@vasivizeken.hu.

A fisherman in a family or group of friends who introduces the pecan candidate to the mysteries of fishing can be a great help in learning the practicalities of fishing. There are almost 430 thousand registered anglers in Hungary, so it is relatively easy to find fish in a circle of acquaintances - says the expert. But according to Norbert Puskás, even if there is no such person in our environment, experienced fishermen in the member associations of the association, in the fishing shops and on the waterfront will also help to obtain the basic equipment and information.

The basic equipment is very variable, but for those who haven’t been fishing yet, I would recommend buying a 4-5 meter so-called tip rod with its own ready-made gear. There is also a need for diving chairs, fish holding bags, hook release, bucket, spare float, hook, line and bait, bait. This is a basic swimming gear, but with it you can already try the experience of catching fish - the expert revealed.

In fishing shops, most sellers are experienced anglers, so they can help you choose the optimal solution by setting a limit on the amount of equipment you can spend. In addition to the equipment, the most important statutes are the state fishing ticket and the territorial ticket, without which fishing cannot begin.

The state fishing license with a mandatory association membership ranges between HUF 6,200-11,000, depending on the association membership fee. If you want to visit our fishing waters regularly, you have the opportunity - in addition to your state ticket - to choose from several types of annual fishing tickets, more about these under the fishing license menu item.

In Vas county, 50-60 of the 86 domestic fish species are definitely found, so the selection is large. Of course, here too there are species that are endangered and therefore have been given a protected or highly protected classification.

Like all areas of life, fishing is subject to certain unwritten rules in addition to the legal requirement, warns Norbert Puskás. For example, we carry out all activities on the waterfront in such a way that the wildlife is not harmed, or only as little as possible, takes as many fish as necessary, the pecch occupies the fishing spot in the order of arrival, in silence, does not entitle disturbs those around them, shows a polite, friendly attitude with his fellow fishermen and those interested, and leaves the fishing spot clean after the end of the fishing.

Many people still believe that everyone is fishing for fish meat, but this is not true these days, the expert says of misconceptions about the subject. There are a growing number of anglers who fish according to the “catch and let go” principle and gently release all the fish they catch.The anglers are sometimes said not to pay attention to the natural values, but the majority do not litter and take care of the lakes they visit, The amount of fish that can be caught at one time can only be predicted, because it depends on the method, the fishing water and the skill of the fisherman.In intensively installed fishing water, the less routine angler can catch up to 10-15 carp a day if we go to fish peacefully - we found out.

As we wrote, the fate of the fish caught can be varied: there are those who release their catch after photography, but there are also peccaries who can make excellent fish dishes from their prey.

If you are interested in fishing, you can visit several locations in Vas County.

"I would recommend the Rába river and the Pinka stream to the lovers of white water, and the Sárvíz lake of Gersekarát, the Abért lakes of Lukácsházi, the Vadása lake in the wonderful surroundings of the Őrség and the Máriaujfalus reservoir to stagnant anglers," advises Puskás
