Cormorants Fishing

One evening while in Yangshuo we went out on a flat bottom boat and watched this cute little 83 year old man and his trained cormorants, fish.
The Cormorants had a string around their necks so that they could only eat small fish. They were fast little swimmers that ate lots of fish. One time the fisherman called all his birds back and he had to go get this one that was off by himself. He grabbed it by the neck, turned it upside down, shook it over his basket and out popped a big fish. It was like a cartoon.
He looked just like you would imagine
