INLE LAKE, MYANMAR, Boat of us: I saw the Intha fishermen of Inle Lake in Myanmar demonstrating their unusual technique for catching fish in shallow waters – balancing on one leg and guiding their conical nets with the other. Their unique style evolved because the lake is covered by reeds and floating plants, making it difficult to see while sitting. Standing allows the rower to have a view beyond the reeds. However, the leg-rowing style is only practised by the men. Women use the oar with their hands, sitting cross-legged at the stern.
