Fishing without a boat, Patnem Beach, Goa

I’ve seen these guys fishing with a net on poles on the beach here at Patnem Beach. They very skilfully wade out, unfold the net and spread it out across the waves. They then wait a few seconds, before slowly and carefully bringing the net towards the shore. It always attracts a crowd of tourists and often locals.

Yesterday I saw them catch several big fish. Today they had just a few sprats.
