Fishing in the Canals of Cochin

One afternoon I spotted two men fishing in the canal that runs behind the Kaloor stadium.

As I approached the bridge spanning the canal, one of the anglers got a bite on the line, quickly drew it up, and then, spotting my camera, posed for a snap.

The canals that criss-cross Cochin, unfortunately, are an eyesore. People living along these canals dump rubbish into them, and it’s a sad sight to see the canals choked with plastic. If only the municipal authorities maintain them properly, they could add to the city’s charm.

And I must confess that I would not dare eat a fish tough enough to survive in the canals of Cochin. 🙂
