Fishing Chinese Style
I rode my e-bike to the supermarket, Tesco, on Monday. On the way I saw a man fishing in the canal and decided to take a photo on my return journey. I just hoped I would not "sail" past and forget - and I was delighted to see he was still there when I returned.
He did see me and I waved as I took the photos. The huge nets are suspended from long bamboo poles, and he would have carried all of this on his bicycle to the river. He's climbed down a wall, and put the net and frame into the water. He waits and every now and then he pulls the top of the net up, using a rope, and if the net comes up with a fish, it will put a smile on his face.
The fish are tiny. So small that we would throw them back into the water. But these guys spend ages getting a small bucketful of tiny fish to take home and cook.
