Sticks Of Trade – Fisherman’s Stick

Spent a free Sunday morning at the Delta beach, a short drive from Udupi in South India, watching the fishermen setting out to sea, and coming back with their day’s catch. Was facinated by their use of a stick – a short, sturdy cut branch of a tree –  for multiple purposes. It was indeed an indispensible part of the proceedings. Be it for hauling in the nets with the catch from the sea, carrying the catch, rolling in the nets, carrying the ropes – the stick seemed to be used for everything. A true fisherman’s mate.
