The still and clear water of Dal Lake was ideal for catching fish using a spear instead of line, hook and bait. Most families living permanently on boats have small kitchens on board where the fresh catch from the lake is turned into flavored dishes. This came from a photograph by Fred Bremner, and manages to capture the stillness and concentration needed by the fishermen to complete their task. Note how the man with the spear and his reflection together with the boat form a geometric arrow.
