Smoking Fisherman with Cormorants, River Li, Guilin, China

By brian17302  
Thanks for all Vs & Cs on last upload
Big thank you Colleen (ColleenA), Steve (sparrowhawk), Bill (BillRookery) & Richard (DicksPics)
for UAs very much appreciated

This is part 2 of the smoking fisherman (part 1 on an earlier upload)

Traditional fishing method in which fishermen use trained Cormorants to fish in rivers
A string is tied around the birds neck & they are sent out to catch fish
They cannot swallow the fish & bring it to the fishermen, in turn they are fed small portions of fish which they can swallow
Historically this type of fishing has taken place in Japan & China

Thanks for viewing

Great shot, Brian. I have photos of the same guy and he also featured in the tv show Paul Merson in China - a very popular character.

Just shows you you do not have to have the latest camera and lens to take a top grade shot! Wonderful result. David
