The Chinese Fishing Nets of Cochin area have been here for 500 years, used to be 30 of them between Fort Kochi & Vypeen Island now only 20, 11 here in Fort Kochi. Set up on bamboo & teak poles with huge stones as counter balance. I was down here at 6am as they started hauling up the nets usually very small fry but the other canoes and larger boats had done well and by 730am the auction to sell began. I took over 200 images this morning so many photographic opportunities, difficult to choose what to put up here!
