A trio of petty criminals – The Coward, The Fool and The Pro go fishing with their dog Barbos. They plan to illegally blow up fish with a dynamite attached to a stick, yet things get out of hand...
- Filming took place in the vicinity of the village of Snegiri in the Istrinsky District of Moscow region, on the banks of the Istra River, and the scene with the explosion of dynamite were shot near the summer residence of Ivan Kozlovsky.
- Filmed material in total was enough for a half-hour, but the director Leonid Gaidai reduced it to a ten minutes running time and removed a lot of stunt scenes that were later used in Bootleggers.
- During the filming, Yuri Nikulin had huge false eyelashes applied, and the actor diligently blinked. Thus, according to the director, The Fool's face was supposed to look even more silly.
