The fishing

In the past, in Lake Pamvotida, there were many fishes: “dromitses”, carp, “glinia”, eels and crayfish, water snakes and frogs. I fished either with fishing line or with a rod, with a cork. As soon as I caught 100 “dromitses” I gave them to my neighbor who was bootblack outside the town hall and he gave me one drachma. One day while fishing at 30 meters I saw something strange. A body floating face down! She had clothes and was eaten by the fish. I panicked and told someone passing by to alert the police. It was found that this woman had committed suicide and they had been looking for her for over a month. Since then, I have not eaten lake fish again, no matter how good it was, especially carp in the “dava”.
