Taking a stroll in the Fort Kochi area, revealed around a dozen chinese fishing net lined on the banks of the sea. It was off-season so none of the fishermen were getting much of a catch in their nets.
The pictures that one generally sees of Chinese fishing net is something like this.
I decided to stroll on to the deck of one of the fishing nets and started clicking a group of fishermen tugging at their net.
They were a group of 6 men, and in any other place I would not probably have strayed into a shed with 6 men. But these guys were really pleasant and happy to be pictured through my lens. So they asked me to join as well! And I said yes!
After a lot of heave and ho, we managed to get the net up! Two of them helped me to tie the ropes as two others rushed to get a look at their loot.
Well we did not catch much fish but did get hold of this strange looking frog! After chatting a bit with the gang, they agreed for a group pic and we bade farewell! I don’t know about them but I had one hell of a time 🙂
