Bream

Where to go: Ilyich village, Gomel district, farmstead "Dom Rybaka" ('Fisherman's House')

About whom to ask the locals: Mikhail Kuksa

Farmer Mikhail Kuksa turned a fishless stretch of the river on the outskirts of Gomel into a favorite place for fishermen. He created an artificial lake to breed bream there. Every year, he releases the fry into the river, temporarily destroying part of the dam. There is enough fish for everyone: the main thing is to fish according to the law. After fishing, we recommend you try the local fish soup. Kuksa cooks it following an old recipe.
