And on the boat you did not fly

This story happened on Bolshoy Martyn Lake, on one of the very hot and sultry days when the air seemed to thicken, became hot and still. And it lasted a week, if not more. This ultimately had to lead to something. Such periods of complete calm and abnormal heat usually end in hurricanes and floods. But that day everything was different on the lake. At least on this lake. And then I heard that the hurricane had felled the forest somewhere in the area of ​​the Ilet River and on to the village of Krasnogorsky. But – all in order.

And on the boat you did not fly

In the morning Pasha and I caught perch
He dragged Reds and prickly “sailors” from the raft, and I was catching perch near the boat. I also needed a boat from time to time to check for stubs placed along the edge of a strip of water lilies, which stretched across the very middle of the lake, starting from the ashes of the former winter houses and dugouts in a clean open meadow, and ending with a “squiggle” of water lilies in the direction the opposite shore, where in general everything is overgrown with grass.

Features of an overnight stay in summer

The summer period is distinguished by relative comfort compared to the conditions of ice fishing and overnight stays with a severe winter time, when twenty degrees of frost and howling snow blizzards are not uncommon. In the summer of all this is not, but has its own characteristics, which also have certain disadvantages and inconveniences.

Features of an overnight stay in summer

In addition to the call to the Ministry of Emergency Situations, these data can be obtained in the media, namely in the newspapers and on the Internet, where the main news of the region is usually duplicated in online versions of newspapers. If this is not done, then in the hot summer period, when it’s time to relax on the river, fish, bathe, fry kebabs, cook fish soup, you can get a substantial fine. And the positive emotions from the rest by the water will turn into negative emotions, that is, the mood will be completely spoiled. In addition, you will have to pay money for making a campfire and visiting the forest in a special fire prevention regime. If you can get a fine of one and a half to three thousand for violating the rules of making a campfire in the woods, then in a special period you can get penalties from four to five thousand. And this is for citizens. Continue reading
