Fishing can either be a sport or a means of livelihood and it can be done in different ways. You could use a net or a hook. Fishing takes time and takes a lot of patience to get the fish.
However, these two men have an old tradition on fishing using birds called Cormorant fishing.
Cormorant fishing is traced back to the ancient civilizations and is a traditional way of fishing before the hooks and nets were invented. It takes skills and great communication with the bird to have an harmonious fishing experience.
These two men fish in a river in China.
The technique consists of tying a grass knot on the neck and placing the birds on the river to hunt. The grass knot prevents them from swallowing the fish.
It’s true sight to behold.
