Spearfisherman on the Bosphorus, Istanbul

The fishermen get into the dangerously strong currents and hold on to a rock with the only free hand whilst the other holds the speargun. When they see their fish they then let go of the rock and within seconds have drifted 50 meters along the shore. Most of the time they get a fish. It looks like crazy fun for a lazy Sunday afternoon.
