Learning to cast net in the Amazon with Marcos

I had the pleasure of having lunch made by Shirley’s friend Joaquina (pollo al horno) and going fishing with Marcos, her husband. He makes all of his nets by hand and is extremely good at his craft. We caught devil fish, and other species common to this lake along the Madre del Rio’s. Today he will make traditional soup from the fish and Sunday we will be going fishing on the Madre Del Rios. Even though we do not speak the same language and I know only basic Spanish we where able to communicate fine and became good friends. I look forward to spending more time with them and doing some more fishing with Marcos and eating more food prepared by Joaquina.
