A great fishing event

This was a great fishing event with some 100 anglers gathered! Instructive presentation held by Dalien will be of benefit to younger anglers, and we all have to admit that he was well prepared for this event. A leisurely walk though the basics of modern pike spin fishing was continuing with a practical fishing part at the lake Ontario. Some good pike were caught, and later event was finished with a lunch. Thanks to sponsors Olivari d.o.o., Topfishing store, Savage Gear and Okuma all participants were rewarded whit a cap and Savage Gear lures. There was also a television crew filming this event for the state television HTV, so this will also be a great promotion of our hobby to general audience.

Bio je to odličan ribolovni event sa stotinjak okupljenik ribiča. Prezentacija modernog varaličarenja štuka bit će od koristi mlađim ribičima koji su se okupili u značajnom broju i moramo priznati da je Dalien bio dobro pripremljen za cijeli događaj. Laganu šetnju kroz teoriju nastavio je praktični dio na jezeru Ontario. Nekoliko lijepih štuka je ulovljeno, a kasnije je nastavljeno druženje uz ručak. Prezentaciju su potpomogli sponzori Olivari d.o.o., Topfishing trgovina ribolovnog pribora, Savage Gear i Okuma, pa su svi prisutni dobili i prigodne poklone poput kapa, varalica te čak i štapova ili podmetača. Cijeli događaj snimala je i ekipa HTV-a, pa će ovo biti zgodna promocija našeg hobija za širu publiku.

Danijel Vignjević - Dalien će ove subote na zagrebačkom jezeru Ontario održati prezentaciju modernog varaličarskog ribolova štuke. To je vjerojatno prva radionica te vrste u zemlji i jedinstvena prilika za varaličare svih životnih dobi da se upoznaju sa osnovinim tehnikama. Ne trebam spominjati da je Dalien autor mnogih varaličarskih članaka u ribolovnim magazinima u regiji i Europi, test ribolovac za Savage Gear i Okumu, te odličan natjecatelj. Sve to bi trebala biti garancija dobrog provoda, tijekom kojeg će svi okupljeni saznati nešto novo i razmjeniti iskustva stečena u ribolovu.

 Satnica:
09:00 - 10:30 prezentacija
11:00-14:00 praktično iskušavanje tehnika na jezeru Ontario

Kanji International squid jigs now in Croatia


Coast squid fishing in Istria
 From October these great squid jigs will be available for purchasing in Croatia. Olivari d.o.o. ensured that the Adriatic squid will have a richer menu this season. Kanji International is Japanese lure company, all materials are made in Japan, just final lure assembling is made in China. This time we are presenting their squid jigs line with 2 models that will be available in fishing shops. Price will be affordable compared to the competition (Yo-Zuri and Yamashita for example), and first test results from Adriatic are more than positive. Jigs were tested among Istria, in Primoje and in whole Dalmation region, and squids were fascinated. There are two models, basic Kanji Clicks and improved Clicks Pro-Spec, both made for coast squid fishing. Kanji Clicks are available in 4 sizes: 7, 10, 14 and 19 grams and from 7,3 to 11,5 cm long. Pro Spec models are made in two sizes: 11 and 15 grams; 8,5 cm and 10,4 cm. There are some differences  between models, in body shapes, in action, in shape of weight, and in a finish with more quality details on Pro Spec models.This squid season is really good here, so place a few Kanji squid jigs in your boxes and you won't be disappointed.

Od listopada skosavice koje proizvodi japanska tvrtka Kanji International moći će se kupovati i kod nas. Olivari d.o.o. proširio je ponudu skosavica na našem tržištu, pa će jadranske lignje ove sezone imati bogatiji jelovnik. Kanji International japasnka je tvrtka, koja nabavlja sve potrebne materijale na japanskom tržištu dok se samo sklapanje i pakiranje artikala odvija u njihovoj tvornici u Kini. Prvi rezultati testiranja su odlićni. Skosavice su testirane u Istri, Primorju i duž cijele Dalmacije i lignje su ih napadale sa oduševljenjem. U prodaji će se naći  2 modela, osnovni Kanji Clicks i nešto skuplji i napredniji Clicks Pro-Spec, a oba su  namjenjena za lignjolov sa obale. Kanji Clicks se proizvodi u 4 veličine: 7, 10, 14 i 19 grama, duljina od 7,3 do 11,5 cm ili po standardnim oznakama od 2.0, 2.5, 3.0 i 3.5. Skuplji Clicks Pro-Spec se proizvodi u dvije veličine 2.5 i 3.0 deep, ili u gramima od 11 i 15 g (8,5 i 10,4 cm). Modeli se razlikuju po obliku tijela, olovnog otežanja i krunice, te po finišu i detaljima na tkanini kojom je skosavica presvučena. Kako je ova sezona liganja već sada odlićna, nema razloga da se u vašoj kutiji ne nađe pokoji Kanji model, koji vas sigurno neće razočarati.

Catch of the day

Two days of raining and a drastic drop in temperature turned bass fishing into a hard mission. They were not at the same places like few days ago, and those we saw were not interested in our lures. Finally Savage Gear Prey 95 proved that it is not good just for sea bass, but works well with bass too, and save our day. Finally I saw a smile on the face of my friend Miro.

Cute little frogs


This great realistic frog imitations are finally in my lure box and ready for fishing. 
I share this photos  to illustrate my delight in this beautiful hand made lures.
They are so realistic, so alive, and have ability
 to walk trough the weed and grass at the most inaccessible parts of lakes.
 I have no doubt they will make our fish like pike,
 bass or chub to attack them at the surface of the water. 
The name of manufacturer is Lures Factory, from Thailand,
 and for now I have no idea how to buy this lures in Europe,
 but as soon as I find out, I will share this info with you. 
 
All frogs are equipped with a one of a few weedless system solutions. 
With this addition you can walk your lure
 wherever you want, without fear of getting stuck.
