Traditional fishermen have a close-knit relationship to nature. Dependency on the whitefish throughout the centuries has created a respecting and understanding relationship to the surrounding natural environment. The fish chooses when to move, the fisherman adapts.
A dipnetter knows his surroundings through living heritage, he knows how the stream behaves. The water level and temperature tell the fisherman much more about whitefish than one could think.
The nature of the river valley and the surrounding circumstances guide the organizing and executing the fishing. Different weather conditions are taken as they are.
Sustainable natural materials have always been used in buildings, fishing equipment and piers. Environment-friendly techniques have developed on the spot and remained unchanged for long. Building skills and handcraft are passed on to the next generations, harmony between human and nature is cherished.
