Over the last 10 years I have often found a reason to snap a picture of fishermen. Sometimes this is because it simply makes for a good picture: the dedicated fisherman who is prepared to sit patiently waiting for something to nibble on the bait.  Other times it has been the sheer madness that seems to grip some people when they get a fishing rod in hand while others, it just been an interesting picture. Here is a selection of those:
