Iskar Reservoir, Sofia Municipality, Bulgaria.

August 19th-21st, 2014.

At the country’s largest reservoir, which provides the capital city with water and hydro electrical power; fishing is a popular activity just like everywhere else throughout the country. People from all ages and economic backgrounds practice it, thus creating a common leisure ground for the Bulgarian people. It is not a levelled ground though. While people from the north-western Danubian plain tend to fish for consumption, the Sofiantsi use their reservoirs on the mountains to get fish which they might return or give away, thus keeping fishing as a purely ludic occupation. They are also transforming their favourite leisure preferences and where in the past only fishing rods could be seen, new yacht clubs are being developed, replacing the traditional folks with pop-folk followers.
