The Inle Lake in Myanmar is a very popular tourist attraction to see the unique art of fishing.
Conical nets are more or less only in use for posing for the tourists. Many fishermen are choosing regular fishing nets nowadays. They still use their legs for paddling as they need both hands for holding the nets.
The rising number of visitors is a blessing and a curse. Tourist boats are getting too close to the nets, the pollution of the lake due to more and more motorboats is getting worse. Hotels are rising on the shores which creates many jobs but simutaniously destroys the traditional agricultural way of the farmers.
