Sázava 12P, 403015

It was the First of May 2019. The International Workers’ Day, I decided to celebrate on the water. I was thinking the day before, where to go, to explore some new waters. Not far from the town I’m working in but far away enough from big Human Habitats. I was about to go to “Střela” river, but I changed my mind just before leaving. The way to Sázava river upper parts, is about 90km from Prague, so within about hour I arrived on the bridge over this sweet stream in a little village called Smrčná. Slightly raised water level and a bit muddy, however, this water is always a bit murky, it’s the nature of this type of river. Leaved the car near the train station, put all the necessary things for several hour trip on me and in the backpack, set up a rod and full of anticipation heading to the river.

Devils rock legend.

In “Smrčná” there has been a “Pulter” water mill from everlasting. Nothing fancy, just common little mill, many similar has been on the river. They have been pretty busy, but the foreman still was not happy. His regret was that there was a big stone in the river just above the mill. During every high water flow, the stone led the water directly on the mill, caused a lot of damage. People tried many times remove the stone, but with no luck, It was simply too big. Once, during the flooding, water was destroying the mill once again. Foreman goes up, around the channel to the watermill, to the stone. He cursed “I will pay to everyone, who will remove this god damn stone”

“Even to a Devil?” heard behind him. Foreman turned and saw. There was standing horned devil, guffawing. What’s the use of asking? You can’t take back what you’ve already said. The devil insisted, that he will carry the stone away, and then, the Foreman’s soul will be his. He just accepted two conditions – he will take it so far, that will not be seen from the mill and he will do it until dawn. The devil started working immediately. Even for him, the stone was very heavy. It goes slower than he tough, but he moved… He turned the stone to the second bank already and continued down the stream. Just a bit more… The Foreman was losing hope. But suddenly, came the dawn.

The devil made a loud deep howl and vanished. The stone stays there where he disappeared, you can see how the stone is dented where the devils back were and on the top, there is an imprint of his horns and paws. But no one should try to move it, because, under the stone, the running devil left opened hell gate.
