Traditional fishing

Dajuma location is just perfect to watch skilled traditional fishermen. Watch them carefully… At the beginning of high tide they come discretely walking in the ocean at knee level scrutinizing the horizon where a mixed of current and waves will trap small group of fish up to 20 cm in length. When close enough, the fisherman throws his net with a twist creating a circle, due to metal pieces attached all around the extremities of the fishing net. The net immerses itself and traps the fish. The throw needs to be accurate and sharp the fisherman’s eyes. This type of fishing is practiced by only a few men. Hope it will be transferred to other generation. They will be delighted to show you how to do. Ready for a challenge!
