Pulling in the rope

Pulling in the rope
Oil on board
6x8 inches

One of the fishing methods along the coastline of Mozambique is to set a drag net out at sea using a boat. Immediately it has been set, the the ropes attached to the ends of the net would be brought to shore.At shore a number of people sometimes 5-15 people would start pulling in the rope, effectively bringing in the net.Not surprisingly there are kilometers of rope that have to be stored away once it is brought to shore.Here you will find that this task is assigned to a number of boys who would pull in the rope for hours until all of it has been neatly stored away in their dhow.
