    The photographer captured a nice symmetry as two fishermen in Vietnam swing their traditional nets out simultaneously. Beautiful backlight highlights the water spraying off the nets and helps to emphasize their graceful movement through the air.

    Every kind of fishing is unique.I like to go fishing too on lakes(for salmond trout) and even the sea (for cod and macroux) it gives a feeling of freedom,adventure and the real natures forces. This way of fishing is very inspiring.

    I can't wait to see more. Thanks Lili
