Traditional Burmese Fisherman at Inle Lake, Myanmar 29 May 2017
About this photo
The Intha use cone fishing nets to throw into the water of Inle Lake in Myanmar to trap their daily catch. In order to keep their hands free to throw the nets, to spot the bubbles which surface from schools of fish and to spot weedy patches to bypass, they attach their paddle to their leg and use it to navigate the lake, standing on the tip of a flat based canoe. Fishing is the livelihood of many of the Intha people. See them glide over the water surface on Insight Guides' Myanmar discovery trip.
