Entrée du canal des rotours

The main agenda: fishing and lifting the trap in the traditional way that the local fishermen do it. No fishing rods here, just the fisherman’s know-how and experience, good hooks, and rolls of fishing wire to get the small and big fish on the boat to the delight of the entire family.
