Fishing from the bad weather had no luck. After sitting for nearly an hour (for me it is a record) in contemplation float motionless, I went to walk along the shore. Away fifty meters when he saw between the rocks at the water’s edge pile of wet perlovitsy.
Most likely, the shellfish were thrown wave on the shore. I opened the knife one sink — insides looked quite fresh, even as it has «breathing». «That, too, catch». — I thought, remembering the lessons of survival during their river journeys, and picked up a dozen shells. In the country quickly «uncorked» leaf, separated from the mucous membrane of the solid meat (it’s a kind of muscle perlovitsy that it moves the flaps), finely crumbled and tossed them in a pot with salted water.
In principle, you can just put the shells into the fire, in a few minutes they would have opened themselves. Pick out the meat with a knife and swallow. But this is an extreme option. I decided to cultivate the culinary process. Five minutes pokipeli meat slices, and then I moved them to the frying pan, into which poured oil. At the end of frying onions spiked, wild garlic. Meat has become a schkvarki. Probably would not hurt to add to them, and greaves, of melted tallow (every self-respecting fisherman its stock always with you).
The remains of yesterday’s porridge, mixed with fried clams from the river, my starving stomach is accepted with great pleasure. I think that meat perlovitsy would have made a good and plov (especially with the addition of fat). By the way, tasty shellfish and cured. Raw meat strung on a twig and processed Kostrov fire and smoke or even dried in the sun, like mushrooms. Probably, in the ear perlovitsy a place. Incidentally, the clamshell stuck in a split twig can be used as a spoon.
Catch fisherman can consist not only of fish. Shellfish also worthy prey. Shellfish generally sit in one place, buried in the sand. To get perlovnitsu, you just need to go slowly, feeling the bottom of the river down. This should be done very carefully — on the wing shells easily get hurt. Perlovitsy at the bottom can be found on the tracks they leave, moving on sand. At the end of the furrow is visible bump. So it is in the ground zaryvshiysya shellfish. By the way, solid meat perlovitsy or mussels can be used as bait, which is perfect for catching tench, bream, carp, catfish, large carp and many other fish.
