My friend, dad and I went fishing in Sheynovo. We left the house at 5:30pm and got there around 5:40pm. As soon as we got there we fished. The first 3 mins or so we caught nothing. Then we caught a carp. It was small, I gave it to my friend for him too see it. He was amazed by it, because it was the first time he ever went fishing or held a fish. Then I gave him the rod and he caught a very small perch. He was so excited that he caught it. Then it was my go to fish and I caught another carp and gave it to my friend to let it go. After that we went to another spot in the lake and I caught 2 bigger perch and carp. My friend caught another small perch and let it go. Dad said we had to go in five min and I didn't catch any thing else. It was time to go.

Grass Snake In Our Pond

My mum was feeding the chickens when she heard a strange noise. Dad said it sounded like a fledgling so mum went to look. It was actually a frog that looked like it was suck under a stone. He pulled it and when he lifted it there was a grass snake eating the frog!!! The snake let go of the frog and it slithered under the rock again. My friend and I waited for the snake to come out again, but we only got to see its head. The next day I was lucky to see the whole snake sunbathing.

I swam under water and opened  my eyes and the water was green! I thought that was dreadful! We went to eat and we realized mum forgot the sandwiches! That really sucked. After we ate we went fishing we caught fifteen Sunfish and one Perch. Grandad caught the Perch and I caught the Sunfish. There were some men near us they caught 2 humungus Catfish!!!  The Catfish were amazing  I loved their orange moustashes!

Fishing In Pavel Banya

Me my friend and my cousin Harrison went fishing at the river Tunzdha near Pavel Banya.We fished next to a wide  water fall, it was very deep and there were lots of other people fishing.We were fishing for Perch, we caught a bucket full of  baby Perch. I love Perch I think there very amazing fish, the patterns are unique and I love the orange fins on them. Perch are predators, they hunt other fish.

Whilst me my friend were fishing  my cousin found a dead grass snake with a baby Perch in its mouth!!!! There were lots of people catching the small Perch and we were concerned  that there were not going to be any more next year. When  we got home and my dad saw the bucket he was a little bit disappointed because we had taken so many small fish. We fried some of  them up, they were really tasty the only thing was the guts were really horrible. We put the rest of them in the freezer.
