Courtesy of Old Salt Blog, I was interested to come across a novel, centuries-old method of shrimp fishing - on horseback.
Intrigued, I looked for more information, and found this longer, more detailed view of the same "industry" in Belgium. I found it equally interesting.
It's fascinating to think that such an ancient method of fishing has survived so long; and it's good to know that the number of mounted fishermen in training has actually increased in recent years. I imagine the occupation is a lot less stressful than much of modern living, which is an attraction in itself.
