1980s metal pin of two fishermen on Fisherman's Day (день рыбака) from the Soviet era, which is a holiday celebrated in Russia and Ukraine on the second Sunday in July
Officially established during the Soviet era, only Ukraine and Russia continued to celebrate it officially after the dissolution of the Soviet Union. The day was proclaimed in 1968 to recognise the importance of fishery and fishing industry, which was one of the most important industries in some regions of the USSR. Originally, Fisherman’s Day was inaugurated as the professional holiday of all people involved in the fishing industry, but now it is also celebrated by amateur fishermen who regard fishing as a hobby
