The famous ice fishing on crucian carp in Yakutia is called Munkha. They gather for this fishing almost throughout the village and it takes place in the fall, when the ice is already strong enough. Usually, one of the most experienced old people, who knows where and how best to carry out a net, leads the whole action. Before the start, they necessarily “feed” the fire, cajoling the Bayanai — the spirit and master of the forest, the patron saint of hunters and fishermen. After that, ice crucian fishing itself begins — a intensive work that requires well-coordination of many people.
