Fishing the Mekong

Fishing the Mekong
Best viewed large. From what I could see, most fishing on the Mekong River in Laos is done with fixed fish traps. Four are anchored to the bank here, the PiP shows others on the bank awaiting use. Essentially, the fish swims into the tapering funnel and is unable to reverse out, with the gate somehow closing behind.

Thanks to Tacheles for suggesting this musical link.

A very well-conceived photograph -- lush top band, golden bottom band, and a person in the half-band in the middle.
