What you need to these creatures? Why are they hiding? No one knows. We only know that they are everywhere, but to see and touch them brought a few. These creatures appear often, but they could not be classified as follows: it is not clear — it's fish, birds, or worms … The most important thing — it is unclear whether they might pose a threat, and if so — what kind?

These strange creatures like the deep sea inhabitants: they have long worm-like body and wide ledges on each side, by which they move as if on wings. Something like under water "fly", for example, ramps, making undulating.

But the misfortune is that they do not live in the water and in the air. Probably find them in water, but so far that they are even in the atmosphere is found only by accident.

Apparently, we are representatives of the fauna, but who they are or where you come — no one knows.

Apparently, for the same reason there is no consensus on a simple question — how to call these creatures. There are different names: "flying sticks» («flying rods» — because of the elongated shape), "solar beings» («solar entities» — with the sun, they have in common, of course, no more than solar angels, just that name came from due to the fact that it is easier to see when they pass in front of the sun) or 'skayfishi "("skyfish"-" Sky fish "- because" fish "way to travel, although they have only seen in the sky.)

Is the most common last option, so we'll stick to it.

First Image skayfisha had received more than a decade ago. Directed by Jose Escamillo (Jose Escamilla), who in 1994 somewhere in the state of New Mexico took video of something strange and thought it was a UFO. When he began studying film, no aircraft, of course, did not find, but I found it to something even more amazing.

Yes, that such beings — skayfishey, flying in the air, he said. He looked at all the shots and made sure that it is not a marriage of film and not an optical illusion — it was something alive, move at great speed.

He soon became closely examine all of your videos, and more often found on them these creatures, always making sure that they fly around us. Soon there was a much different proofs that Escamillo has created a website dedicated to these mysterious creatures.

Many people wishing to study the unknown forms of life, which often call themselves cryptozoologists can not say for sure whether you can call skayfishey animals, or are intangible objects. To be sure of this, you have to catch at least one individual.

However, those words — no more than a healthy scientific skepticism. After all, there are people who not only have serious reason to speculate about the nature of "sky fish", and know from experience that this is a living creature. These are people who know what these creatures, they see them up close and sometimes touching — catchers skayfishey.

Most experienced hunters skayfishey in Japan - Ichikawa, and Imoto Idzima.  So far, the most famous Ichikawa is among them (staff from the site youtube.com)

These people are in different countries. The fact is that after the opening of Escamillo skayfishey are increasingly noticing — whether these creatures are stronger breed because of the gradual warming of the earth, or they simply have to pay attention.

Little by little, this interest has begun to spread around the world. Now most skillful skayfisherov lives in Japan.

One of the most famous — Kozo Ichikawa (Kozo Ichikawa).

Master Ichikawa — so it is respectfully called neighbors — live in the village. He says that skayfishi very rare creatures. However, in a quiet place where Kozo settled, they often come across him.

"As a child, walking in the mountains, I often caught these creatures — large and small — he recalls. — As far as I know, they are now called the American way — "skayfish"But we have a village they are called in their own way -" tyuman "(chuman)». What does this word, it is not explained.

Ichikawa said that in his village tyuman very honored and they are treated with care, is perhaps the spirits of the village. Sometimes they are caught — but just for fun, it's not so easy to do. However, this game is nothing but emotion does not work.

"This is a local tradition — to catch them, but not to cause harm: catch and release, catch and release — such rules" — says Ichikawa. That's what a true reverence for the wildlife!

Ichikawa found a trace of skayfisha collision with a tree.  According to the master, there is a kind skayfishey, that this sometimes happens.  In the area where catches skayfishey Ichikawa, they fly at a speed of up to three hundred miles per hour (picture from the site youtube.com).

Catch skayfisha really very interesting — it is not that at all. And, of course, best of all it gives Ichikawa.

To catch it uses special tools.

Going on a hunt, Ichikawa preparing bait. First makes a special solution, which is a resin, melted in water (unfortunately, the master did not specify what kind of resin used to make the liquid). Then adds the chunks of dried tuna.

Explaining why he chose this bait, Ichikawa said that in the air the water reflects sunlight and creates a glare, attracting skayfishey.
But fun, I must say, unsafe: skayfishi very toxic in the autumn-winter period, so sometimes Ichikawa uses mandatory protection — a hat with mesh and rubber gloves.

No more money, he does not take with him, and catches them — right handed! And this despite the fact that local skayfishi fly at speeds of up to three hundred miles per hour. Not surprisingly, then Ichikawa called a master of his craft!

He argues that skayfishey getting smaller, and I'm sure this is due to "changing environmental conditions, such as temperature and other problems."

But, obviously, this is not quite right Ichikawa. Skayfishey, can be, and is less than around his village, but in other parts of them, on the contrary, more and more. Accordingly, it becomes more and wizards, but not such great.

A still from the video with some estimates calculations to determine the trajectory skayfisha made Michael Rizenhuberom a few minutes before the start of the hunt. For this skayfishera accuracy — the most important thing (picture from the site youtube.com).

All of them are engaged in fishing using different devices. For example, Japanese catcher Sadaeci Idzima (Sadayoshi Iizima) is used for this mogosi (mogoshi) — a long stick with a sharpened spiral wire at the end. And another Japanese skayfisher Tatsuo Imoto (Tatsuo Imoto) uses poison. In general, as you can see, most of these funds is not very humane.

Speaking of global experience skayfishinga, it should be noted that it is not easy to organize. However, anybody that does not want to do — every hunter secrets, special devices and methods.

For example, a very interesting approach to a German Rizenhubera Michael (Michael Riesenhuber). Going on a hunt, he never gives in to emotions and keeps cool head. Catching sight skayfisha, that gets him immediately.

First, Michael takes a pen and paper and try to make estimates of the trajectory calculations skayfisha, to predict the nature of its movement in the next few minutes. It was only after the approximate mathematical model is built, starts fishing.

Worthy of attention approach two U.S. private investigators — Marvin Oliver (Marvin Oliver) and Jeffrey Doyle (Jeffrey Doyle). Catching up on catching skayfisheFirst, they try to apply techniques gleaned them from forensics.

A Mexican Pedro Sanchez (Pedro Sanchez) generally believes that it is desirable to catch skayfisha company. And not just in the air, but even in the water.

For hunting Tatsuo Emoto uses a powerful poison. Unfortunately, even when faced with the unknown creatures of humanism is often forgotten … (picture from the site youtube.com).

With the capture of skayfishey a number of problems. Catchers rarely admit that they got these creatures. There are only a few stories when allegedly placed in a container skayfishi quickly died in captivity. It is said that later they will soon be expanded, resulting in can only gelled liquid mass (without a hint of a skeleton or skin), which is then also quickly dries.

However, no real evidence of this, no one wanted to give.

And for good reason. After all, you need to know about skayfishah zoologists. For example, only by Ichikawa, as the most experienced in the world of skayfisherov, known skayfishey size — from a foot to three feet. But this is not enough for experts. On what special is it? Are adults or young? Male or female? Or is it at all different kinds? This knowledge is, unfortunately, not yet available to biologists.

There are other considerations for which information on skayfishe should be made public — security concerns. Indeed, as shown by rare random videos "heavenly fish" move with unprecedented speed of one hundred to one thousand (!) Kilometers per hour. It is easy to imagine what it is dangerous to humans! Also, remember once again that sometimes skayfishi are extremely poisonous.

And what danger they pose to aviation! Scary to imagine what role these creatures play in the history of air disasters!

Note that the picture quality skayfishey very rare: they are usually quite accidentally noticed the videos (photo Victor Quintanilla).

It is also interesting to note that the skayfishey started to pay attention only after they have seen footage that was considered spoiled. Perhaps mankind has recorded a large number of skayfishey, but a lot of evidence on film, photographs and videotapes were simply sent to the trash — as a marriage.

All the facts and assumptions associated with skayfishami raise some suspicion. These creatures are depicted in Japan, the U.S., Mexico, Germany, Samoa, and many other countries. And any information about these creatures in our great country …

It is hard to guess what could be the secret — especially the environment, natural resources or the environment. However, it is possible that these animals we simply do not pay enough attention. And it is likely that their invisible presence plays a big role in our lives, and perhaps history.

What do you do if you suddenly find skayfisha? Precedents are not so much, so hard to give such advice. It may be that at this moment we should remember as citizens, to inform the public and scientists. And of course, do not panic.
