Lu flowers

On a public holiday in early autumn, several friends from the oil field came to see me. After lunch, they proposed to visit the reed marshes in cirri River, because friends from the oil field had not seen what the reed marshes really were. We drove along a straight gravel road to the depth of the reed marshes. There were dense reeds on both sides of the road. We had to find a high place to watch the spectacular scene of the reed marshes at this time, otherwise, you can see nothing. The reed which is tall than one person covers people’s sight, and you can only feel like being in the vast green ocean. There was a rugged fork in the road ahead. The car couldn’t get in. We abandoned the car and walked deep. A river brake appeared in front of us, the six-meter-wide river stretches to the distance, and there are simple houses built by Reed field workers here on the River dam. After chatting with them, we know that it is here to contract Reed field to raise crabs, and fish farming and fishing in ditches and ponds. Knowing that we were here to play, the workers told us that we could see the beautiful scenery of reed marshes after walking more than 500 further, and there was also a little red beach inside. After hearing this, we were all excited and walked in along the High River dam. The high reeds on both sides covered the narrow river dam. We walked forward while pulling reeds. Some friends in high heels were inconvenient to walk on the dirt road, we have to wait slowly. More than 10 minutes later, our eyes were bright and the front was open. We came to the high damp-proof embankment, and we could see the vast reed marshes. The spectacular scene couldn’t help exclaiming. At this time, the reed flowers have begun to bloom. Looking far away, the white reed flowers are like snow and floc, floating on the Reed Sea with the wind. Nearby, the sorghum red flower buds are like fire against the dark green Reed and sunshine, xia. The winding river twined under the Reed green veil like a jade ribbon. Hundreds of waterbirds such as egrets and black-billed gulls are wandering freely in the nearby pond. As we approach, they are constantly swimming far away, keeping a certain distance from us all the time, in order not to disturb these leisurely waterbirds, we will not move forward. On the broad river beach on the left, there are patches of alkali pengcao growing, which is really a spectacular little red beach. The vast reed landscape gives people too much reverie and mystery. Not only is the scenery beautiful and spectacular here shocking people, but the deep Reed landscape also contains rich wealth. People make full use of the water to raise fish and crabs. We came to the edge of a river branch, and we were catching up with people fishing off the net. The scene in front of me reminded me of the scene when we were fishing in the early 70s of the last century. At that time, I was just a teenager. I had a very good friend Xiaohai. When studying, we often studied problems together. When we went home, we played together. He often lived in my house, live with me. Xiaohai is very good at fishing. He often pulls me to ride a bicycle and carry a fishing net to the far river to fish in the net at night. When the reed flowers bloom, it is also the time when the fish, fat and crab are fragrant. We find the place where the reed grows on both sides of the Strait and prepare to go off the net. Xiaohai said, where there are many reeds, there are many fish, because fish have to eat aquatic plants and living creatures under reeds. The net we downloaded was called Dou Net. First, we put a row of stakes in the river about two meters away, and then tied the net to the stakes. The bottom of the net stepped into the mud with our feet and smoothed it, in order to avoid being washed up by the water, the upper outline of the net determines how high it is to lift according to the speed of the water flow and the amount of debris on the river surface. After getting off the net, we set up an arched shack with bamboo leather on the shore, covered with plastic cloth, covered with grass and mosquito nets, We also brought some dry food to prepare for starvation at night. When night fell, Xiao Hai and I were lying in the shack chatting. Listening to the sound of fish jumping in the river, we felt very excited and excited. Xiao Hai said, we can’t catch the fish jumping on the river. All we catch are catfish swimming against the bottom of the water. The net will start every 2 hours or so, and at the same time, check whether there is any place that the net is washed up by water. It is already Mid-Autumn Festival, and the water is very cold at night. Generally, the water is around the waist. Before we get into the water, we need to order a pile of fire, and immediately warm it with fire after coming up. Although it was cold in the middle of the night, I could not mention how happy I was when I saw the fresh fish and crabs. I forgot everything else. At that time, crabs were worthless, especially big ones, which cost only 5 cents each. Therefore, we were not interested in Crabs. Generally, we let go of smaller crabs. In order to avoid drowsiness and cold at night, we burnt crabs on the fire to eat. The yellow and fat crabs were cooked to eat, and the taste was very delicious. Sometimes we also pull some newly ripe soybeans on the edge of the dam and eat them on fire. The soybeans and big crabs with woody flavor are really the most beautiful and delicious food in the world! At that time, there were still a lot of fish in the river. Every time we went offline, we could gain a lot. We sold the fish we caught to buy learning tools and books. Later, the number of people who went off the net gradually increased, and the number of fish became fewer and fewer. Now there are almost no big fish, The variety of fish is also less, and there is no fish in the general River ditch. I remember when I was young, once my father and my uncle went off the net, the catfish caught one night were fully loaded with a small donkey cart in our neighbor’s house, I heard that there was a big catfish blocking the NET Core, and that net only covered one of them. At that time, it was raining heavily. There were fish in the ruts, and we often went to catch fish in the ruts after rain. I still remember that my grandfather and others set up a net on a wide river far away from home. Sometimes I went there to play with fish when playing. One noon, grandpa stewed a pot of fresh catfish for us. Grandpa took out the fish’s internal organs and put blood into the pot without any oil. He stewed it on fire for a long time, that meal was the most fragrant and delicious catfish I had ever eaten. I have never eaten such a good fish any more. Now if you want to see that bigger fish are all cultivated. We waited by the river with curiosity and excitement to see the fishes caught by the fishermen, and to see if we could give us a surprise. Let me review the past scene again. The fishermen went ashore, looking at the net pocket, there are not many fish thrown, also called sea catfish, which inevitably disappointed us and made me feel that the past time was no longer the same. But anyway, the fishermen finally got something. For friends from the oil field, such a scene was enough to excite them. Everyone shouted to buy some fish and crabs to eat. Therefore, we came to the river gate again. At this time, they had already caught many river crabs, and some fish and shrimps. Friends bought some of them, I bought some corn from the farmers who planted corn near the dam and went back to eat it. Now the dinner is complete! Everyone happily left the charming and rich reed marshes to enjoy the products of the reed marshes!
