Cambodian woman are known for their fishing methods, such as the use of a large bamboo trap to catch fish from rivers and other bodies of water.
One day, when I was walking with my guide along the Mekong River in Cambodia, we came across this girl who looked to be about 10 years old. She was building a fish trap by hand using ropes and sticks that she had collected on the ground nearby.
This ancient way of fishing is called “The Catnap” for its ability to lull prey into becoming vulnerable to capture.
