Batek also fish with gill nets, which they obtain from traders. They usually stake the nets out in a stream in the afternoon and retrieve them, with any entrapped fish, the next morning. Fish try to swim through the openings in the net, and their heads get stuck; when they try to back out, the net snags their gills. Here two men are putting out a gill net.
