• Catch whalers
I've already talked about what they do whalers day: patch the network communicate with each other, repair boat, look out for the whales in the sea, carved decorative boat, sleep or thumps. But the interesting thing is still going on at sunset, when the whalers leave for fish, and at dawn, when they return with their catch. Therefore, each time sinking or rising sun, I tried to be on the beach to see them or meet. During these attacks I was able to learn a lot about the whalers. Today I will tell about it.
Here is the deserted beach Lamalery when whalers at sea.
As soon as the sun disappears behind the hills, and the beach lies the shadow ...
... whalers are preparing to put to sea, where they will spend the night.
On the whales they go with harpoons, and for any other fish will fit and networks.
web together are placed in the boat.
Use fishermen network of about 400 meters.
Portrait of a fisherman.
When everything is ready, the boat is carried to the sea ...
... and the fishermen are waiting for his moment.
They see waves that are cyclical.
When it comes to "desired wave", they let the boat on the water, jumping into it on the go.
have to act very quickly, so as not to miss the moment.
If you miss the moment, the wave could turn the boat or even sink it. The boats used to get to the fishing boats that reside in the sea.
The old - honored whalers like Ignasiasa - remain on the shore, while their children continue their business.
As soon as the last boat disappear over the horizon, the beach becomes empty ...
Fishermen returning with the first rays of the sun.
At that time on the beach they are waiting for the others to help to drag the boats up to the hut.
Never have I seen to fishermen returned without a catch (there was a time, but has yet to talk about it).
Each boat has always been a tuna.
In addition to tuna were, of course, other instances such as this shark's.
But the most vivid impression left swordfish ...
It was just huge!
As in the joke: "I caught a fish in-the-by with the eye!"
All the fish (except tuna) butchered right on the beach. The title of this I do not know (some argue that it is mahi-mahi).
Another swordfish - "small".
Then the catch was divided between fishermen.
has got to fish, not only those who go to sea, but also the elderly.
I did not see that someone cheated. Fishermen Lamalery live as one big family.
About elderly. When I came the first time to meet the fishermen with their catch on the beach it was still dark. It seemed to me that I was the only one there. Then out of nowhere appeared Ignasias. It turned out that he just got out of his whaling boat, which slept! The old man does not sleep at home. He complains that there is hot and a lot of mosquitoes. But on the beach in the boat fresh and cool. Therefore, every night he spends here. Ignasias pictured with his grandson (or granddaughter).
By the end of the carve-up of the beach came to women.
The wives, sisters, daughters and mothers ...
They have carried out a catch.
One morning the fishermen return to shore with the Sea Devils (manta ray).
In the past these amazing creatures I have seen only once when the dive, working on "EMBAKU".
When they passed such graceful, beautiful and mysterious, I was just amazed. Now they were dead.
So I was not in itself remove ...
... as they cut up the fishermen.
So from manta rays were only "a trace".
What can I say about this? Such is the life of these people that feed the sea.
They did not care whether there will still sea devils or whales, when they grow up their children.
They - the poor fishermen, who can not be sure that they will tomorrow - catch or an empty stomach.
And the house (as corny as it may sound), they are always waiting for his wife and children ...
... which must be fed.
... my story would not be complete if I had not gone with them in the sea, and would not have tried to craft yourself a fisherman. This is what I have to tell the next time.
