Ice fishing in Russia

When I was a child I lived in a small Ural town and used to go to fishing. Sometimes it was summer fishing, but more interesting was ice fishing. For some people from the West, especially living in warm countries, it could be really weird that someone can spend the whole day at a pond trying to catch fish from under the ice when the temperature is -25C and it is extremely windy.

But it was fascinating and I have remembered this hobby because of the article in Guardian I read this week. There are good explanations of reasons for this hobby and description of its circumstances.
