The 'Do' Seller

After the harvest, farmers in the village of Tat Vien in Vietnam’s Hung Yen Province spend their spare time knitting do, writes Your Shot member Ly Hoang Long. “It may be the simplest way to catch fish: Put some bait inside, and after a few hours pick them up and just collect the fish, eels, and crabs.” Here, a man sells the bamboo traps from his bicycle.
