TURKEY: Eskimo-style ice fishing season begins in Turkey's east | CIHEAM Press Review | Scoop.it

Eskimo-style ice fishing has continued this year to be an outdoor activity as well as a source of income in eastern Turkey as one of the largest lakes in the country is frozen amid harsh winter conditions.
Lake Cildir, the second largest lake in Eastern Anatolia, located on the Kars-Ardahan border has been attracting fishers from the Akcakale village every winter when it is frozen.
Fishers get prepared in the early hours of the day and walk on the frozen lake until they reach the area they will fish and throw their nets into the water after opening a hole on the lake.
