Two Agta men catch an octopus on the northeast coast of Isabela. The men use a metal spear to pierce the octopus hiding in the rock and takes the two of them to pull it out. Most Agta fishermen use a pair of goggles made from wood, glass, and rubberbands, a metal spear propelled by a heavy rubber band, and occasionally a small steel barbed head attached to a line and a wooden shaft. However, today you can see many Agta men wearing plastic, manufactured goggles. Agta fishermen can stay out for hours at a time hunting fish and other marine life. (Isabela, Philippines)
