Nothing fishy about it

If you thought fishing was all about spiking a worm to a fish hook and dunking it in water, here's an ancient technique. Fishermen in Yangshuo, China, fish in the river Li using cormorants. You may say this is one for the birds but in this  technique, there are no fishing rods, no nets and no baits. The fishermen tie a loose collar around the throat of the cormorant which they have trained to catch fish. The noose prevents the bird from swallowing their catch and the fishermen retrieve the fish when they pull the cormorants back to their boats. For hundreds of years, the cormorant fishermen of Li have used this technique, now a dying art, if you can call it that. However, in Japan, the last practitioners of this fishing method are on the imperial payroll to bring freshwater fish to the emperor's table. But, now in China it's only for the tourists. The fishermen are, sadly, like fish out of water! Source: BLInk
