Man always liked to look at the water. The stormy waters of the ocean, the brilliant sunlight on the surface of the sea, the fast river and the quiet lake - all this has long attracted people who found in the water not only the pleasure of contemplation, but also the source of food. Indeed, the seas and oceans are rich in fish - the prey of fishermen. People engaged in fishing on a professional level are called anglers. And fishermen are lovers of the hobby so popular in our country. Despite such a difference in definitions, both of them are celebrating Fisherman's Day with great scope.
When do we celebrate Fisherman's Day in Russia?
When is the Fisherman's Day celebrated in Russia? Its roots date back to the 1980s. The date of the celebration changes every time. It is now customary to celebrate it on the second Sunday in July. Determine which day the fisherman will be celebrated in each year, you can only check with the calendar. For example, in 2012, fishermen throughout the country competed in craftsmanship and boasted of their catch on July 8. A fisherman's day in 2013 falls on July 14. Certainly, fishing is a hobby in which gambling can manifest itself. But the process of catching fish brings a sense of calm, satisfaction. It is thanks to a combination of such different properties that fishing as a hobby has become very popular in our country.
For holidays it is customary to give gifts. And on Fisherman's Day, when everything whispers and sings about the fish, the best gift to the fisherman will be his catch or at least the very opportunity to relax with a fishing rod on the river bank. The opportunity is something you can create, but with a catch is more difficult. There will be no friends and family, dressed in diving suits, secretly hook the fish to the hook of his friend, as in the well-known film. But they can quite well on this day prepare a dinner (dinner) for fish and seafood. Not deprived of the poetic gift can give the fisherman poems that praise him as the best fisherman in the world (an old man who caught a goldfish does not count). Also suitable are souvenirs in the form of fish, various devices for fishing: fishing rods, folding chair, thermos.
Are there any traditions of celebration? Certainly. How can a fisherman's day go when all the fishermen are just thinking about catching at least a small fish (and even better than the most huge fish), without fishing itself.On this day everywhere on the banks of reservoirs competitions are held, competitions, the main prize and whose aim is, of course, an excellent mood and a charge of positive healthy energy. It can be competition for the best and most successful, agile and patient fisherman, family competitions for the best fishing family. People who have even the most remote relationship to this holiday, it is better to spend the day fishing on the nature. When you later recall it, the thoughts and feelings will be only the most pleasant, since you will get violent emotions, a healthy portion of fresh sea (or river) air, pacification from communication with the water element, from becoming attached to such a diverse and surprisingly enthusiastic environment fishermen.
