An enjoyment of life: observing beautiful scenery rather than fishing

It’s time to check fishing rods regularly when lights on the bridge are on.
CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- During the National Day holiday, some people chose to travel outside, some would like to visit relatives and friends and some stayed at home. However, about 20 fishermen who chose to sit along the riverside during the holiday were fishing with fishing rods lined up under the Nanping Bridge of Jialing River in Hechuan District. It turns out that it’s fishing season now. Some fishing enthusiasts gathered at the bank of Jialing River in the section of Zhongnan Road of Hechuan District with a 24-hour shift fishing, which became unique scenery along the river.
Dense fishing rods
Fishing rods were lined up from the beginning to the end of bank, with sheds covering with plastic film every few dozen meters, with recliners, buckets and fishing tools in.
Chen Guorong, who claims to have five years of fishing experience, said that he would go fishing and wait until a few days before the Spring Festival. Now can be regarded as the fishing season in Hechuan. During this period, no matter whether it is raining or sunny, a group of fishing enthusiasts will gather on the banks of the Jialing River waiting the fish.
Observing beautiful scenery while fishing is an enjoyment of life
The 45-year-old Mr. Qin runs his own company and fishing is a hobby. He and Chen Guorong have been "teamed" for a year or two. He said: "At night, all fish belongs to the one who is on duty. When we have a little fish, we will take them home and share them with our families. Some people will choose to sell them when having a large amount of fish. Its price is about two times higher than the market price because fish in the river is more tender and delicious than fish on the market.
“What we are not fishing for fish but beautiful scenery. Observing beautiful scenery while fishing is an enjoyment of life.” Chen Guorong said that he enjoyed the tranquility and leisure especially when he was on duty. Some friends brought some roasted meat here. They talked about life while drinking beer. It is not important to have much fish or how big the fish is for him. “The night scene of the riverside is beautiful. The fishing tools on the bank are lined up, integrated with the lights reflected in the water, bringing out the beautiful scene on both banks, which is another scenery to observe.” (Translated by Mao Qiao, Fathom Language Limited)
