Notice: gone fishing near the bridge! December 28, 2007Posted by asianpixmen in Activities, Culture, Malaysia, People, Places.
Fishing is fun whether you are doing it yourself or at times watching others engaging in that activity. Somewhere in the heart of Kuala Kangsar, the royal town of Perak, a couple of guys who really have nothing more pleasurable pursuits showed up at the huge Perak River one afternoon with their fishing gear.
I happened to be there, too but for an altogether different purpose. My intention was to spend some leisurely hours visually browsing the beautiful landscape. My eyes rested upon those three men at a distance.
From where I stood, the river seemed quite deep but the fact that the men were in only knee-deep water revealed that silting has been going on for a long time in that area. The fish around this place aren’t that great but fish is fish. For many villagers, the activity translates to dinner on the table for a family of five or six.
