5am, and as the heavy mist rolls in over the River Towy, Carmarthen, some of the coracle fishermen of the Carmarthen Coracle and Netsmen’s Association complete their fishing session of the morning. The beginning of May marks the start of coracle fishing season. Coracle fishing is one of Carmarthen’s oldest traditions, dating back approximately 2000 years. The fishermen fish for sea trout, which are called “sewin” in West Wales. In 2017, West Wales coracle caught sewin received European Protection status. This is the only part of the world, that you can uniquely witness these coracle vessels fishing for migratory fish on a river with a net. It took several days to capture the moment of the mist rolling on the river. I wanted to subtly use the flash to gently enhance the portrait without taking away the natural atmosphere.
