Photo Album of our Tour to the Holyland
January 4-14, 1999
Photo 16
Here is a young fisherman demonstraing the art of throwing a delicate net which is surrounded by leaded weights. It takes great skill to toss the net in so as to have it form an inverted funnel which rapidly falls downward, trapping the fish. On noon of this day, we had "St. Peter's fish" for lunch, and it had a Schekel in its mouth! The fish was bony but very delicious!
