A man, a raft and two birds

Sailing peacefully across Li River, in Guilin, China fishermen fish without the aid of a rod with this unusual method,

With just a couple of cormorant birds bird, a gas lamp and a net, each morning, fisherman in China keep a special, thousand year old tradition alive, practiced since 960 A.D.

The men, pictured in southern China, release a cormorant bird, which then dives into the water and retrieves a carp, returning it to the fisherman's bamboo raft.

Please meet Huang Gao Hui, who posed for me to be able to show the world this millennial tradition.
