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.
