A good counselor

Fishermen from the El Carrizal dam assure that a man appears in the evenings to give some tips that improve fishing. A good counselor.

Urban Legends
Buen-consejero leyenda

 Not all ghosts have to be bad . That is the case of the “Fisherman of El Carrizal”. A man who appears and disappears from one moment to the other, but, during his presence, becomes a good counselor. Correct and teach the fishermen of the place.

History has become a  legend , and all fishermen know it.  El Carrizal is located 65 kilometers southeast of Mendoza City . It's the nearest water mirror there. Therefore, it is constantly frequented by water sports lovers, bathers and  fishermen .

What is most pulled out in its waters is the  pejerrey . And every fisherman does it with his favorite technique. However,  in the afternoon  (one of the indicated moments for fishing),  if the pique is not good, and the rod remains still for long hours, the help of the beyond comes.  Many people have confessed that, in the face of this situation,  they hear, out of nowhere, and from behind, the voice of someone they have not felt to reach.  When turning, the presence of a person, allegedly  a  man , is noticed by his physiological characteristics, but with a hood.  This, coupled with the darkness of the sunset, makes it impossible to see his face. Gently,  he offers some  tips  like “try mojarra and not silver”  or “the pique is in deeper waters”. And in a matter of seconds, the good counselor is retiring. While  fishermen immediately apply the tips and quickly get their first fish.  

Many say that it is the soul of a fisherman who tragically lost his life in  El Carrizal . The truth is, either way, it's a good counselor.
