Big Water (275 žod. + užduotis)

Angliškas tekstas skaitymui:

Lake Nipissing, which means big water in the Algonquin language, in the Canadian province of Ontario, is a three hour drive north of Toronto in Canada. At a mean elevation of 196 metres above sea level it is located between the Ottawa River and Georgian Bay, and in winter, the lake becomes ice, and thousands of Canadian fishermen travel there each weekend – to fish!

Their method of fishing is a little unusual. They build little houses of wood on the ice, which they paint in bright colours, and then they sit inside these houses to catch the fish that swim under the ice.

Bob Marvisch is a regular. He has been coming here at this time of the year for the last twenty-five years, and says that you need clothes that are light but warm, like two pairs of socks and gloves, several thin sweaters and a snow suit on top.

He explains that catching the fish is not difficult, and describes his technique. First he breaks the ice and makes a small round hole in it. Next he takes a fishing line and put some bread on it. Then he puts the line through the hole and into the water. He pulls the line up when the fish eat the bread, which are between ten and twenty centimetres Long.

Once he has caught about four fish, Bob likes to have a break for some hot chocolate, although he says that some of his fellow fishermen like to cook and eat the fish they catch. He feels it’s a great sport and meets some nice people, makes some new friends, and meets some old ones.
