Poissons d’Avril (April Fools’ Day)

Today is the April 1st and, in many countries, to this day the tradition is tied to make of the jokes.
The origin of this custom is ancient and controversial, for some could be French, for others, to go back to the ancient Rome. While in some nations, this day is called simply as the day of the jokes or of fools – All Fools’ Day (England, United States), Aprilscherz (Deutschland) -, in others it is indicated like “day of the fishes” – Poisson d’ avril (France), Pesce d’Aprile (Italia) – because of the local custom to call “fish”, the  April 1st joke.

I want to be faithful to the tradition too, not for make you a joke, but to describe you a method to draw the fish ; -)
