Anyone for Ice Fishing?

The skill set needed for ice fishing appears small, however personal character traits need to run deep.  Whilst to the untrained eye this activity appears to be less than exciting, many locals regularly scatter along the ice in pursuit of a variety of fish which swim in the icy waters underfoot.  The fishermen huddle together in groups for no doubt company, conversation, and sharing of limited equipment.  This is truly a case of safety in numbers.   Patience, stamina, and the ability to ignore the elements is essential, expats need not apply.  Littering is not encouraged.

    Thanks for the glimpse of life on the Ural. I miss watching the river freeze and the fishing activity!

    Expats need not apply . . . except for Larry. We’re going to give it a try this winter (if we can figure out how it’s done).
