This man was fishing near the old bridge in Berat City. I can tell by they way he is holding the rod that he is fishing trout using insects as bait. Another common fishing in this river is that of barbel using earth worms. I was pleased to see the Union Jack on his hat! I do not know whether this person is using his hat symbolically in any away but overall the Albanians are very friendly towards Anglo-Americans.
A close up of this fisherman in a WS.

A nice rural scene, with a wonderful light touching on the highlights in the photo. I especially like the position of the fisherman on the far left, and the way his sunlit fly fishing rod makes a slight curve which echoes the bridge behind. An excellent exposure and a pleasing composition. And a very good note!

A fine picture of this fisherman enjoying a relaxing time by the waterside. I do hope he managed to catch something for his tea.
The sidelighting is quite magical and lights up his rod peffectly against the darker background behind him. The strong lines of the bridge are a good compositional element and the colours and sharpness are excellent.
Nice to see this fellow wearing a Union Jack hat! Do you fish?
