Shared Occupation – Fishing in Tokeh
“We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men; and among those fibers, as sympathetic threads, our actions run as causes, and they come back to us as effects.” ~Herman Melville
As with most things in life fishing is a shared occupation. The success of one person is reliant on the hard work of many. Here one woman ends up with her bowl of fish ready for smoking and for sale but the labour taken to bring that food to her bowl has been put in by many.
