Fishermen demonstrate a "Kon Tiki" type fishing tackle system. The orange torpedo-like device motors under battery power almost 2000 metres out from the beach in a direction under GPS control. 25 fishing lines are attached to the line which is retrieved by a motor-driven hoist after a several hours. A bottom-dwelling gurnard or three are hauled in! A kingfisher looks on with disdain!?
