Approximately 100,000 years ago,
the humankind started using tools
and thus began civilization.
This kindled one of our basic instincts.
It led to the endless battle between humans
and the elusive creatures under the water.
From a means of survival,
to one of domination,
fishing is mankind's greatest invention,
leisure and a gift from the gods.
The fishing man, they are Homo-hamiota.
A hook to catch the fish,
a line to drop the hook into the water,
and a rod to pull up the fish
Ready for fishing!
Who first started using this equipment
and when?
As the last ice age of Paleolithic Age came
to an end, the sea water began to melt.
The vast seas and rivers
became bases for settlement.
People no longer had to roam the Earth.
The Yellow River of China,
the Nile River of Egypt,
Tigris-Euphrates River of East Asia,
and the Indus River of India.
These streams fostered human settlement

and nourished civilizations.
The ability to use fire and tools placed humankind
in a superior position in the natural world.
People built houses for protection

from natural elements,
hunted with weapons made from stones and bones,

and made bowls from clay.
It was from then,
people started catching fish.
Before the fish hook was invented,
fishing using baskets, nets and spears

was just an act of gathering the food.
Neanderthals were the first of
the archaic humans to use fire and tools.
They made spears to catch fish and
baskets to trap fish.
They also invented fish hooks.
