• Where cancers winter
There are in our city psychiatric hospital named after Bekhterev (as it is officially called), as popularly it for some reason called "Rakovka". Why Rakovka - I do not know. Maybe there was once a river, in which crabs were carried out, may, for any other reason.
In my child's mind Rakovka strongly associated not with the mentally ill, and freshwater crustaceans. That is why I have always believed that somewhere in those parts, and is the most treasured place, what's what.
Later, I was sure that all cancers in general a long time ago povyvelis and go in our region need them as far as possible, for example, Kudykin mountains. As I was sadly mistaken! It turned out that on the Vyatka have survived such recreational areas that are well suited for successful wintering crustacean arthropods.
We have traveled all over the entire length and breadth of the Song district, a little bit not reached Nolinsk and looked to neighboring Kumensky and everywhere left without fish, but with a bunch of photos. Finally, we are lucky!
Already on the way back, quite desperate and depressed, we found amazingly beautiful forest lake with clear water the color of turquoise, with little fish, but with a crawfish!
For obvious reasons, the coordinates of the lake, I will not specify, but photos from the event happy to share.
It's funny to wander along the beach and see all thumbnails that is deep under water.
is even more interesting to explore the underwater world directly in the mask and flippers. I put his debut on the next time, and as he watched, as do my more experienced comrades.
They are like large black leeches, squirming, writhing on the shore, trying to climb a little deeper into their rubber armor.
Of course, in this lake there are fish, but in a clear water all seen how in the window, so to surprise underwater inhabitants is not so simple.
Seeing from afar approaching people with harpoons, the entire catch instantly hid in the dense thickets of underwater.
Cancers are not as nimble as a fish and catching them much easier.
Our divers like icebreakers ply secluded creek covered with a thick layer of slime.
It is in such inaccessible places worth the fish and crabs hiding.
From the shore you can see how the underwater hunters methodically examined the stump of the stump, snag of snag.
The main danger - thrown nets or debris from fallen trees. Once in a trap, you can not float. And here is the first trophies!
Too small crustaceans affranchise.
The larger counterparts intimidating mustache stir viciously spun bulging eyes and splayed claws klatsat. They are not so easily let go.
They were in an unenviable position. Contrary to my opinion, crayfish pretty nimbly run and not backwards, as described in children's books, but somehow sideways.
For a couple of hours each could catch some of the bucket crabs.
houses children squealed with delight, having received such unusual goodies. And I was interested in hands such an amazing creature.
About how we cooked crayfish on a fire, nothing will not write. Execution is not for the faint of heart. I sincerely pity them. Because of the tiny piece of tender meat cancer kills a living organism.
After the terrible death of cancer becomes a bright red color, and then you can pick open chitin carapace, pull out from the cancer calf microscopic piece of pink meat and even get a drop of the delicacy of his claws.
To satisfy at least some kind of hunger you have to single-handedly destroy the whole bucket of crawfish, and then and more.
They say, crayfish can live only in perfectly clean water. In such places you can drink water straight from the lake, but I did not dare, but what I fear - no living thing for sure will not survive in some of our tap water.
