Getting Ready to Fish

The locals were netting very tiny shrimp called Kaey, used to make shrimp paste. In the 10 days we were on the beach this was the only day they did this. I have to assume that they know the best time to cast their nets. There were at least ten groups fishing on the beach and all of them brought in lots of kaey.
