Winning the second prize of drone category is “Catching fish in the morning” of photographer Nguyen Ngoc Thien (HCMC) capturing a fishing boat pulling nets during the anchovy fishing season at Tuy Hoa, Phu Yen. His other work, “The dancing of the nets” taken in Hon Yen, Phu Yen, is one of top 100 best drone photos.

From May to August every year, Phu Yen will be crowded and bustling with boats in the fishing season. The “dance” of the vast nets floats in water, drifting into a multitude of shapes. Surely, an interesting subject for a photographer to explore.

The anchovy season is between the second and eighth lunar months (March-September on the Gregorian calendar this year). If you visit the port early in the morning, you can see fishermen throwing nets to catch fish near shore.

Once the boat is anchored, the fishermen hang the net now with many anchovies after their fishing mission on the side of the embankment of a dam. They proceed to use a long stick with plastic foam attached on one end and repeatedly hit the net so that the anchovy slide down the net placed underneath.
