About Fishing With the Community Adventure

This adventure tour gives you the opportunity to learn freshwater fishing the traditional way, as the local community fishes. Travel in catamarans over the lake at dawn or dusk guided by one of the local fishermen. Learn more about the arts of sailing in catamarans, creating fishing nets from scratch, and fishing the way the locals do it. Experience the traditional and modern techniques used by the fishermen in the area. Try your hand at laying the net and reel in the catch. Visit the nearby island where you can quench your thirst with freshly hewn king coconut, relax in the cool breeze, and watch the many species of birds that visit the island.  Return to the village once you have finished fishing and visit the village afterwards.
