Fishing Tour, Finland, June 27, 2014

We Finnish women can do almost everything ( in comparison I know women from other countries who don´t even know how to sew on a button) so yesterday we, my Mama and I, decided to go fishing.We have been out here on my Mam´s island since Thursday and we were also here during the midsummer week but it was quite cold weather then. Only +6 degrees in the night! It should be about +18-22 in the midsummer,but the weather is not longer like it used to be. Today it was sunny and about +16  degrees of Celsius.

Anyhow, Brito has never been fishing with nets so we decided he can be the film team so that you can take part of the adventure. We got this idea of going fishing about 8 o´clock yesterday in the evening and started checking out the nets to be sure they would be easy to put out. We used three nets that are about 5 meters deep and the wind was only about 5-6 meters per second when we finally, about 9.30 in the night, went out on the sea and laid them.

He,he! The life on the island is like a real fisherman life! We listen to the seaman forecast on the radio at last 3 times a day or more! It´s the weather that dictates your stay and program and if you don´t take responsibility and listen to the weather forecast you can end up being stranded for days not getting back to the mainland. It´s open sea outside here and the waves can get real big .And if they say it will get windy you, of course, do not put the nets into the sea...and if they talk about rain for many days you probably prefer to go home to her real house where you can live normal.

Everything worked out fine as you can see in the video clip below. :-)
If I just get time tomorrow I will edit the next video that is from about 7 am this morning when we went out to collect the catch.
