The Liérganes Fishman! firsthand read.
In 1672 Francico de la Vega Casar was sent by his family to study to Las Arenas, where he was often seen swimming in the river for hours. One day, Francisco was dragged by the water, his body was never found. Five years later, some fishermen from Cadiz bay captured a strange man. He was a strong man, about six feet tall, he was pale and had red hair. A line of scales very similar to those from fish ran down his back and he had a brown membrane between his fingers... Francisco de la Vega Casar, the Liérganes fishman, life was brought together and published by Fray Benito Jerónimo Feijoo between 1726 and 1739, and now we can firsthand read Feijoos original writings on Francisco de la Vega Casar, the fishman from Cantabria.
