Weekend Snapshot: patience

I am amazed at this man's patience. He's fishing using a speargun, and from this frail-looking tree, he's waiting for fish to surface from the river so he can strike it with a harpoon. People living by the Dumacaa River fish for food so I guess this guy does not need that much fish. Spearfishing yields extremely low catch that it's probably the most ecologically sustainable form of fishing.

I wonder if he can catch enough for his family. It would be inadequate to eat only fish for their meals.

Amazing strategy to catch fish. You should ask him how many catch he can do in a day. I do fishing before and it is now easy to catch fish.
