How to Fish with Cormorants

This is the first introduction I have had into Cormorant Fishing. Are you googling "Cormorant" right now? I had to. A cormorant is the bird perched on Huang's bamboo. The birds are trained to catch river fish. It is a centuries old tradition popular in China, Japan, and Korea as well as Greece and North Macedonia.

Today, it's a method used only for touristic purposes. I'd love to witness this process before it becomes buried in the past.
