“Puppet” of the lake

The lake showed me a close friend and companion on fishing trips, Volodya L., in a lot of pokolesit on the maze left Bank of the floodplain of the Suras in the vicinity of the railway station, Nikonova. It was called the operational matters got seriously wounded; the locals called it short — Linevo.

Went to the place, sinking in swamps between the hills and forcing his way through bushes and bracken. Finally reached the shore of the lake. To estimate the total amount are unable, but, remember, perched between the hills, I threw the bait bait and soon I was lucky: pulled the bream on 300 grams, which is considerably improved mood.

Operational matters got seriously wounded not far from there was located another large lake — the Swan, which was usually full of hundreds of fishermen who waited for the promised hour. biting capricious perch. He had us decidewhich from bad bite to beat thunder, put on your skis and race on operational matters got seriously wounded: and suddenly there you are lucky?.. But it was bestowed upon luck only patient and loving silence, hardy and do not love the hustle and bustle.
