What you'll do
We will meet you at the hotel and head to the local market, to buy some fruit and snack for the pond and to see how fishermen sell the nets and other fishing gear. Then we will drive to the countryside, to our favorite spot for fishing! We will teach you how to hold and throw the fishing net, use the bamboo fish trap, and soon you will be catching small and big fish from the pond. We will grill some of our local catch over a fire next to the pond, local style, and join in a meal together with all the fishermen who are at the pond. It is traditional style of Cambodian fishing! After we eat, we will clean our nets and head back to the hotel for shower and ac :)
We are Sothy and Haley! We live in Cambodia and love getting outside the city to explore the beautiful nature all around.

Where you'll be
The local market is a huge market, selling everything from clothing and jewelry to alive fish to vegetables and fishing gear. The pond is a clean place out in the countryside close to Siem Reap, we will go by tuktuk there. Many friends always fish there, and it is a fun and social way to spend the day and meet local people and learn about local culture.
