Fishermen of Teluk Bahang

Sometimes they leave as late as 10am; sometimes at 2am, or even earlier than that. Their boats range from large fishing boats to small two-man sampans.In the sleepy fishing village of Teluk Bahang, dozens of men go out to sea every morning, tasked with bringing in as many fish as they can, to be sold at the bustling Tanjung Bungah Market. To some, fishing is more of a pastime, something to do in between ferrying tourists around. For others, it is their life.
