In pictures: Fishing festival
Race to fish

The Argungu Fishing Festival is the culmination of a four-day cultural event in the north-western Nigerian state of Kebbi.

At the sound of a gun, they pound towards the narrow river and leap into the water.

They have just one hour to catch the biggest fish.
