    Sit still and watch the river, it's all a part of fishing, oh and never trust a man in sandals.

    To be fair Paul, that geezer's back-flip is pretty impressive and he's got a longer beard than you. Similar sandals though.

    Got to question the sanity of some people!
    Who would commission, fund or watch such nonsense?
    Only when the last tree has been cut down, the last fish caught and the last river poisoned, will we realise, we cannot eat money.

    Totally different culture I suppose. A sort of angling homage to Crouching Tiger!

    Exactly my point - a bit like the difference between Chinese (the clip) and Japanese (tenkara) eh?

    Monkey was amazing.

    Pop quiz - Tripitaka; male or female??

    I still don't know without looking on google.

    Edit - just looked it up; actually female (rather than a ludicrously feminine/androgenous boy).
    Double Edit - The performer was female...but the character seems to have been male...

    Maybe a hangover from traditional Noh theatre
