Photographer's Note

These cast-net week-end fishermen sling their nets hard gaining a wide arc in hopes of a big return. This cast yielded one small fish each, while most came up empty. Each cast takes 10-15 minutes between tosses and both had little luck this day.

This area is at the base of a small Dam near GuZhen Town. The water way is the Wei River. There are barge/boat locks at the dam and the ramp to the locks can be seen in the photo background. The downstream water spillway is below me as I am standing on the far end of the dam. Beside me are dozens of traditional fishing-pole fishermen. Some with good catches.

Not many foreign people come here and I was a point of attention and was even offered one fish. Very nice people!
