At the break of each day with the exception of Domingo,
the local fisherman of Tofo gather under the trees on the beach, where their colourful boats have rested for the night.
Traces are drawn while sustenance for the day ahead gets stacked away into the middle storage box that will hopefully be filled with fish on their return.
Most mornings are warm and as the light kicks in,
the boats head out with determined and confident crew.
By 2pm they begin to head back. First in gets first access to The Market demand.
Without fancy equipment or fishfinders, these men fish with a knowing, handed down from father to son and developed over generations of doing,
Complimented with the rich bounty that is the Mozambique Coast Line.

(Talk in the village is that the record catch brought in on one of these boats was a 200kg Sailfish. I reckon the fish might have brought the boat in!)
