Along with agriculture, fisherman have made a living on Inle Lake￼ for generations. These fisherman continue the tradition of rowing their boat with one leg while using their hands to pull in the nets. It’s an incredible feat of balance.
You may see images on the internet of fisherman in traditional dress with large bamboo nets. These fisherman are simply there for tourists to take photos, but real fisherman still use the traditional leg rowing as well but have switched to more modern nets.
