Father and son fishing along the Nandu river, Haikou

 

Todays fishing location

 

 

Today I took a ride down the Nandu river in the hopes of spotting some interesting subjects to photograph over the dragon boat festival. Around 10km from the most southern part of Haikou (where I live) lies a dam across Nandu river, the dam is approximately a 100m long and is hot spot for the local fishermen. Today I bumped into this father and son, who were net fishing.

With these images, I really wanted to capture that father son moment and also a sense of how powerful the water was on the day

Time to change locations.... no luck yet

 

  

 

You can get a real sense of the weight of the net by looking at the swing the father has to take and after each swing trying not to fall into the water

 

Caught anything yet?

Time for one more location

  

...and after a few more casts with have some fish

 

Not a bad days fishing, time to pack up the net and go home
