Výlov = Lots of fish and fun

Last weekend we visited our dear friend Mirka Štenclová in southern Bohemia.  Mirka lives about 45 minutes away from the largest lake in the Czech Republic.  Every two years, the fishermen who manage the stocks in the lake, drain the water in the lake and catch all of the fish.  This is known as a výlov.  When this occurs, it brings out musicians, chefs, fish lovers, and folks who enjoy eating and watching as the fishemen do their thing.  We joined the crowd, ate fish, watched fish being caught, listened to music, and had a really nice day with Mirka and her two children.
