Morning Fishing at Inle Lake, Myanmar
Fishing at Inle

The Intha fisherman at Inle lake – with one leg wrapped around a single oar, leaving their sunburned hands free to manipulate the conical fishing nets. This skill, unique to Inle Lake, takes a high level of balance, agility, and strength. The fisherman has to determine the right amount of pressure to put on their free leg, while their other leg steers, turns, and uses the oar to slow the boat down.
