Fishermen

After the long walk to new pasture, Yasha and other men head out fishing in one of the larger lakes next to the tribes new settlement. Once the chum is erected the men head out to catch the food that will sustain them for the following 3 - 4 days. In the summer fish is their staple diet, saving the reindeer meat for winter when the lakes are frozen. They use a simple long narrow net which they cast out and pull in.
