Ice fishing with bare hands in Korea next year, anyone?

Brave souls catch trout with their bare hands

Brave souls catch trout with their bare hands at the Hwacheon Ice Festival. It takes place in the Gangwon Province of South Korea each January.   During this winter festival, thousands from Korea and abroad gather to partake in over 40 events ranging from snowman making to Ice Soccer.  The main attraction is the Trout Fishing.  You can either do this using one of the 9,000 holes drilled into the Hwacheongang River or (if you’re brave enough) you can try catching one with your bare hands!
