China trip – 23. Urban fishing Shanghai style


This young man’s determined to go fishing in a banned place got everyone’s attention….


Soon dozens of people are watching….

This is some kind of water filtration plant.   Signs and spikes don’t put him off.  Nor that the water isn’t a very nice colour.


We are in the financial heart of Shanghai, with different shaped high blocks of offices around everywhere.


….Success!   the young man got his fish using a strange looking small harpoon gun with a length of nylon wire.


Meanwhile, ordinary fishing takes place, with wide nets across the canals just around the corner of Shanghai.
