In pictures: Fishing festival
Big fish, big stakes

The Matan Fada river is small, but it is well stocked.

Fishermen only come here once a year on the day of the festival.

The competitors stagger up the stone steps to have their fish tagged and weighed.

At stake is a brand new bus and one million naira ($7,500, 4,000).
