Fishing in the Amazon jungle of Ecuador "Being a fisherman is a way of life, it's not for everyone, but if you chose it you better do it right and know everything there is to know about it" -Osvaldo, 64.

Fishing in the Amazon jungle of Ecuador

Elsa, mother of 10, takes three of her sons and her baby daughter (on her back), to fish in a little stream with mullein. Mullein is a powerful poison that comes from the roots of the mullein plant, and when hit by a stick they let out a white liquid (the poison) which paralyzes the fish for a while so they can catch them pretty easily.
