There is Lake Michon in picturesque Mt Taesong in Pyongyang.

Located in a wooded valley, the lake is as beautiful as a picture. It is 18 200 square metres in area and 450 metres in circumference.

“Lake Michon is teeming with fish. If you acquire the knack of angling, you can catch a lot of fish even for a day,” said Kim Song Chol, head of the Michonho angling service management station.

According to him, there are many silver carp, carp, Ryongjong fish, grass fish and goldfish in the lake and anglers cast their lines from early morning.

Among angling fans there were not only old men but also middle-aged men and all of them attentively watched their floats move up and down on the surface of the water.

After a while, an old man carefully jerked his fishing line, shouting that he hooked a heavy fish and the fish was lifted out of the water while wriggling violently.

A young man, who followed him to learn how to angle, rejoiced at the sight as if he himself caught the fish.

The fish was a carp weighing about 4 kg and its catcher was Jo Son Guk, a 70-year-old living in Ryonghung-dong No. 1, Taesong District. After retirement, he learned angling and found pleasure in it, he said, and added that whenever he failed to go angling even a day, he felt impatient.

Shortly afterwards, a middle-aged angler hooked up fleshy fishes in succession using four fishing rods.

“You can catch fishes only when you know well about the features including eating habit of fishes and use appropriate baits,” he said wearing a big smile of satisfaction. “I cannot really find the words to correctly express the impression I get when I feel the wriggling motion of the fish I have caught through the line and rod.”

A worker of the central heat supply network station who came to the angling site as soon as he finished his shift caught over 10 fishes in a few hours by displaying the angling skills he had honed in his leisure time.

“Angling is the most joyful recreation for me,” he said.

According to Kim Song Chol, the pleasure of doing angling in the fresh air in the quiet fishing place in the mountain can be felt there alone.

The number of visitors to the Michonho angling service management station increases thanks to such “promotion” by those fans.
