Fishing at San Carlos Lake
Me and my dad loves fishing in San Carlos lake. We do this almost every weekend but this is my first time to blog about it. After fishing we always cook what we caught. To those of you who don’t know where San Carlos Lake is, it’s in Cooper Jack Hill. No one knows about it, except me and my Dad. Simply because we named it and it’s not on the Map!
While waiting for a good catch, I came to realize what’s the history of fishing, where did it began? Who’s the first fisherman? If we believe in Creation and Intelligent Design, I bet Adam is the first fisherman during the Genesis days and it began during the creation of the world.
While browsing Wikipedia (Ah! My favorite encyclopedia!) Fishing is an ancient practice that dates back at least to the Paleolithic period which began about 40,000 years ago. (Now that was long long ago huh?) Archaeology features such as shell middens, discarded fish bones and cave paintings show that sea foods were important for survival and consumed in significant quantities.
During this period, most people lived a hunter-gatherer lifestyle and were, of necessity, constantly on the move. However, where there are early examples of permanent settlements (though not necessarily permanently occupied) such as those at Lepenski Vir, they are almost always associated with fishing as a major source of food.
Now have you learned something new today? I bet you did!
