In case you don't know, this man is catching frog. And in case you don't know again, yes frog is edible. Not all, but most ricefield frogs are edible. No we don't eat bullfrog. Only the swamp frog and the pot belly frog. Its an exotic food. And it taste like chicken. When you look the background, that is ricefield, and in a month that rice will be then ready for harvest. Its rice season in my country. You can see the valleys in flat green because of the rice plants. Of course some background are mountains. Have you experienced catching frogs?

I didn't know you caught frogs the same way you catch fish.
@ilocosboy (44933)

Actually there is difference, catching fish needs hook while catching frog need only the bait without the hook, usually using earthworm as the bait.

@ilocosboy How do you attach the bait without a hook?
@ilocosboy (44933)

Usually by fastening or tying it at the end of the string. Sometimes we use the snail's meat.

So how does he actually catch the frog? Does he pick it up or put a net over it? I've had frog legs once and I thought it tasted like chicken.
@ilocosboy (44933)

Yes like that, when the frog bite the bait, he will lift it up and then shoot to net bag he is holding on the other hand.

I know that and would like to try to eat it just to have a say if it really does taste like a chicken But the man in the picture seems like doing some fishing with a fishing rod I didn't imagine it that way
@ilocosboy (44933)

Yes, something like that, when the frog bite the bait, that man will just lift it up then will shoot to a net bag he is holding with his other arm. That's easy. Because the bait have no hook, when the frog is already on the basket it will loosen its bite momentarily.
