Daring festival-goers catch fish by hand in Vietnam

This Vietnamese in Tuyen Quang Province sees locals trying to catch fish with their bare hands in a lake.

Footage captured on February 16 shows festival goers strolling through the water as they search for fish.

The participant who catches the biggest fish wins the game. This year’s winner managed to catch a 7kg (15 pounds) fish.

The unique festival takes place every year and is celebrated to wish for good health and a productive harvest.
