What visuals crop up in your head, when you hear the word ‘fisherman’? Large, over-sized gumboots. Frayed jeans tucked into them. A large, shapeless hat propped on the head. A huge umbrella and many cans of beer. A pipe, a flickering lamp, a brimming hip flask.
That’s the fable, the picture romanticized in many a photograph and painting. The modern-day version is entirely different – think carbon fiber fishing rods, a go-pro to film the action, head torch, and so on. Check out this fascinating comparison between the old and the new. The fish, of course, remain the same!
