The "Art of Fishing" is one the main tourist attractions and a must see skills of the fishermen at Inle Lake in Nyaungshwe Township , Myanmar. Inle Lake Fishermen have a curious and unique rowing style, which consists of standing on one leg on the extreme of the boat and wrapping their other leg around the oar. The fishing boats are traditionally carved teak then they put their boats together and put the cone-shaped net contraption into the water.

Fishermen trap the fish by throwing the cone-shape nets into the water, pressing on it with their feet so it sinks to the bottom where the fish are.
