The Fishing Hut

(otherwise known here as a carrolet. A structure typically passed down through the family, and used for drop-netting small fish, crayfish and eels)

Good to see these different ways of life.
Probably something the average tourist would not get to know about.

Thanks for the comment - here's a close up of the hut....

We don't get many average tourists here, to be honest. It's mainly a French destination, with many holiday homes in the region. In that respect pretty much everyone knows of the carrolets, but they are a novelty to foreigners, for sure. The ones on the coast are sturdier and bigger, like the second and third photos.

Thanks for the reply and extra photos.
Those coastal ones look serious! Not quite the charm of the older river ones.
Those, river ones, would definitely be part of my touristy list. If I knew about them :)

From Vorma, the main river feeding off the largest lake in the country, Mjøsa. Tapped down in anticipation of the spring flood, when the snow in the mountains makes its way down to the ocean.
