Strong frosts and it was not, though, and walked to the middle of winter. It was pale rosy dawns in the frost, but came unexpectedly warm wind and snow co timid manure. And then again all soft thaw frozen in silence. And if there is frost in the morning, though not in force, but kurzhaveyut shore willow trees and fabulous … Shaggy from frost, they become like a huge white and unseen coral. In them, the magical coral instead atoll colorful fish redden breasts inflated bullfinches. It happens, it pushes the whitish sky and fall through the blue sunlight on it belosnezhe. And then will play Iniesta branch is absolutely precious…

In the dim day with slight frost we wandered companion channels. We are looking for something a chore tychas in bays and under the cliffs. The first excitement of meeting with friends in places already passed. Cold leshachi met these lands, hozhenye us and on the water and on the ice in the best of times. It seems to be the same around: as silent-Belotelov stretched birch on the islands, except that thinned in places, carved-sawn for firewood; as unchanging coastline with the same Bolotin-zalominami crashed into nizkoberezhe, and with the same snags; and goshawk sharp-eyed, it seems, the same floats, peering strictly to the chattering magpies. Here it is diminished in the stream of dry trunks and snag sticking out of the water before the ice and dense and dangerous. And at the bottom of the tree trunks with otopreli suchkastymi uhvatistymi «hands». If you happen to be right now hooked lure or jig for a snag, or the sdernesh to unhook and then tear off the mote so lift him up like a wondrous black and green cuttlefish. If only the fishing line securely.
Change others, and this cold in my soul. Here, from this island, were a simple, no frills, copper trolling perch to a pound. Fun beaten on the nod, and sat down on the hard and uporisto blesenku, causing bend whip udilnika. Splashing out from the well, fought Okushko on ice krepkotelye, striped scarlet yarkotsvete and were in unearthly beautiful, with piercing yellow eyes bulging and shiny black dots pupils. Sugar in the frost, they arch their body strong and courageous remained until recently, when they were reckless recklessly …
Now occasionally beat Okounkov less so fingered palm moth ruffs, so that there ruffs – ershishki a finger! ..
Otherwise it can not be seen, only the thorns sticking out from a bunch of mucus, but the tail keeps on dashing soldier stubbornly, one side … salute …
My comrade – Lenya-Small – a man two meters, is no stranger to the fishing business, but he was always on your mind, had otlichinku-riddle – to eccentricities. Often choked me unjust laughter at the sight of a live compass Hoosier in a fur hat, staschennoy apparently her son because she does not fit on the top; of ragged green jackets model 1939. sticking half long arms, and soldiers’ boots with galoshes were tied with plastic ropes mahristymi to galoshes are not flocking … He was not poor as a church rat, but for some reason thought that fishing should be worn only the worst and the old … This friend took with smoked sausage and vodka expensive almost from the Kremlin cellars … was also a little absent-minded Lenya-like «man in the street Basseennoy». In his pockets are always stored a variety of subjects, but more often than those that were required. And now he carefully rubbed Ershov mucus brand new women’s tights black erotic color, although it felt boot sticking out fishing cloth, fluttering in the wind.
– You Lenya, straight from the fishing was honored mistress? –I notice innocent.
That makes the round, totally uncomprehending eyes.
– What do you mean?
– On hand look …
Lenya took a long look at the stockings, then cloth, then at me. He was like an old spaniel. His ears drooped helplessly wrinkled cap, and the whole ungainly figure expressing terrible confusion.
That I could not stand. For ten minutes I was laughing from the heart, feeling inexpressible relief, as the go for the bush. All this time companion looked at me thoughtfully, sad eyes, as if searching for what’s happening throughout the Unknown to some higher meaning. Finally, the nerve chain locked, the signal reached the brain … And Lenya came laughter, from which all the crows fell from the surrounding birches, and then climbed onto the wing and flew back home, off cawing and different about us bad news …
– His wife bought as a gift. Hidden away, to «Surprise» do, and then spruce head, not found. Week sought .. – like showing off, Lenya said, catching his breath at last.
– Yes … … Spruce Head, – I said.
Leonid frowned and looked at me suspiciously.
– I bought it then green …
Sipping a cup of tea, we dejectedly trudged on, sometimes leaky ice a few other holes. But everywhere, like a grand piano in the bushes harvested in advance, the first fish was «sailor» palm, then caught another one, a little smaller, and then he walked «master» – ruff snotty … After a well is only a blackened void. Though pineapple in it Coupaye bait … This kit is present in almost every fresh well and strictly enforced as if entered paper-decree from the local chertyaka: like this, and in another no-no …
The day is of whitish watery brightened, nalilsya warm light coming from the high right bank. From there they came and sounds with scattered through the hills of the city. Akin to Hollywood, I remember, were laid out before the hills large and proud – Kozmodemyansk. I do not come to me to be the last time in those places. More and more of chapyzhnikam yes chaschobnikam leg break.
So, in thought and smoke breaks, we went out on chistinu that close to the Mount of fried. It is as though a kind of crossroads flow. From this it can be seen in the city and in the darkening haze high bank. Here are the letters and did not understand … we drilled with Lenya-small in well and decided to sit on them, while the sky in the Yoshkar-Ola not giknetsya or ravens not sing sweetly.
Try with Lenya baubles, waiting already familiar pair or two bites detail. But here, in the four-meter depth of the wells it was completely lifeless, like a black hole. This is enhanced by the lifelessness of stressed chistine wind. Like a desert continental cold bore along the wide ducts to the rootkit, and from this grew cold hands and undead heart. Appear irresistible desire to send to the water all that strange masochistic obsession called fishing, and go home! .. It seems like the same thoughts assailed and Lenya. He really was the small, huddled in his padded jacket curtailed to the position of the repentant Magdalene. I remembered that in my backpack is still lying around in the summer Chinese slicker, more disposable, however, as with most things Chinese consumer goods. But here he was not required «Checked electronics» – as long as the wind did not miss …
Rummaging in the knapsack, and find the desired stretch chilly mate. He quickly breaks raincoat, but the cloak proved to be similar to Lena’s quilted jacket: just sticking out from the sleeves of his long arms, and the raincoat was for Leni-Little-jacket rather nepromokashkoy … But still five minutes, sipped hot tea from a thermos, comrade thankfully she said:
– You look, the package from under the bread and warm, Chinese policeman …
– Made Ying China, brooms do not knit, – I assented to it. Although I was sinteponovye suit, but also threw a raincoat. And immediately formed a microclimate under the PVC, like autumn sun warmed.
Sipped a cup of tea with vodka, we came to life; like a soft cleft foot brushed the spleen and warmed the soul. A thought slabodushnye, foul strayed off into a flock of frightened, and then disappeared forever.
I put aside udilnik with baubles and falls into the hole jig with a bunch of bloodworms and above – a semicircle on bloodworms kryuchke-»zaglotyshe». Mormyshka not had time to get to the bottom, suddenly stood up and nod slowly stood up. Knock! – It suggested as a stupid hand, and then something elastic and unconformably fell in depth, reluctantly and difficult climbing to ice. Roach! .. Cast silver twisted big fish in the hole, trying to leave his head down, but picked up a hand, huddled on ice covered with snow crumbs. Mormyshka gurgles in the hole and out again into the depths. Again, it does not reach the bottom. Now the jig is beating okunek not large, but the appendage to the roach go. And then nod gently lifted weighty fat bream. She sleepily sipped air and sprawled on the ice, blushing fins …
– Throw it back! Enough to destroy fry! – I hear the heart-rending close. It Lenya-Little feverish impatience change gear and down into the hole jig with bloodworms. Went case and he…
Before nightfall we re- laxed catching roach and perch, as if to comfort for long hours of cold besklevya …
