Fishermen

Fishing is the activity of catching fish. Fish are normally caught in the wild. Techniques for catching fish include hand gathering, spearing, netting, angling and trapping.

Traditional fishermen still fishing by using traditional techniques such as rod and tackle, arrows and harpoons, throw nets and drag nets, etc.

The mighty Niger River is a source of food, water and drainage for five nations of West Africa.  During the flood season fish like the Nile Perch enter the marshlands to spawn. During the period from December to April the waters recede and the fattened are fish are left to flounder in the shallow waters. This makes then an easy catch for fishermen. Along the main course of the Niger, fishing is, of course, also plentiful.
