Fishermen check their baskets at Wagenia Falls in the middle of the Congo River, near Kisangani, DR Congo. Most of the wooden frames are built near the river's edge but some of the fishermen build frames in the very center of the river were the flow is greatest as they believe this is where the strongest, and biggest, fish live. The wooden frames are made by forcing tree trunks into crevices in the rocks during the dry season.
