But this year, after 11 years living here, I had a break through. I met a Slovak fisherman who was willing to guide me through the process of getting my fishing license. And guess what? I’m fishing in Slovakia!!
My first fish was a big fat Karp (the sacred fish of Slovaks). I know – a “junk fish” by American standards, but it was fun to catch and quite an experience to clean it. And a whole other experience to try to eat it!
But I’m glad I had the experience. Maybe one day I’ll be fortunate enough to catch a Slovak trout or some other exotic Slovak fish. But for now, most of the thrill is just being a fisherman again.
