When Skill Meets Patience

 

To know the spirit of Kerala, turn to the livelihood practices of the people in this land that collectively forms the backbone of this state. Fishing, more than just a livelihood, has grabbed the attention of tourists seeking to learn the nuances of the practice.

There is no one way to fish here. There’s angling, fishing using bow and arrow, fishing with nets, fishing with bamboo traps and the peculiar practice of Vellavali. Learn it from the masters!
