In favorable conditions, such as the estuaries of Azov, Astrakhan ilmenite or in the deltas of major southern rivers, reeds occupy large expanses of water. Within these thickets lost hunter easy. I installed on my rifle is removable, waterproof compass, and often only use it to choose from a cane captivity. Until this little upgrade many times and had long wandered.
As we said in the bush tough aquatic vegetation grows well any animals. Including the one that can hurt the hunter. For example, some bacteria (?) Cause inflammation in the ears, which are then classified by doctors as otitis. To avoid this, many of us are hunting smeared ointment gioksizon ears inside. Likely as any other, less active ointment can do the job if you use it carefully before the dive.
Two of my closest friends are suffering from the bites of leeches, which in the summer in the reeds more than we would like. One this trouble from an early age, and the other was a allergic reaction a couple of years ago, although hunting was also done since childhood. After a small leeches suck face accidents swells and turns into a kind of pancake, high fever, and the forces are leaving just a healthy athlete. Illness lasts 3-4 days. Medi-kamentozno is almost cured. The only way – mechanical protection from possible contact with bloodsuckers. Protect requires only just, a small part of the face. Tried thickly greased these exposed parts neutral ointment, but the hunt for a watch ointment partially or completely washed away. The problem can be solved Protective rag mask that everyone needs to think up and make yourself. Or a neoprene helmet that makes firm Neopro (hole tube advise still increase to be able to spit out the mouthpiece if necessary).
Do not want such a "bloodthirsty" note to finish his story about fun and healthy lesson. Spearfishing in the reeds not only dobychliva and relatively simple, but it is accompanied by a unique opportunity to observe the rich underwater world. Lying in the reeds, and waiting for his trophy, all you see life underwater inhabitants: how to feed and hunt fish, like crawling and something sting his claws cancer, here amphibious turtle crawling somewhere on the bottom of a snail in its affairs, and in the grass really hiding, waiting for their prey … I have every time in those moments was sorry that I do not have underwater camera or camcorder to take pictures of this beauty and then show their land relatives and friends. Now I have a little underwater apparatik there, which does not interfere with the hunt, and will certainly not a professional and an amateur quality to capture what he saw up close.
