Morning Catch

March 14

“Along the Cua Dai riverbanks, there are hundreds of fishing nets spread here and there,” says Your Shot member Ly Hoang Long, whose picture was featured in the Daily Dozen. “This kind of fishing is quite simple—a ten-square-meter net is stretched using four sticks of bamboo and wood, [then] at night, the fishermen dip their nets under the stream and drop some powder bait on the surface. In the early morning, they just raise the nets and collect the fish inside.”

To get closer to the nets, Ly hired a sampan to be taken through the water and shot with a long lens.
