I am currently working on a project that I have been thinking about for a long time; a documentary delving into the various fishing methods around the world. After spending many summers up in Alaska commercial fishing myself, I wanted to try my hand at other methods, in other countries to see how the fishing in Alaska compares and contrasts both methodically and culturally.
This short clip revolves around my time in Kerala, India working on a Chinese dip net. This centuries old system has stayed relatively the same as it was when it was first introduced here in the 1600's. It was truly an experience!
