erniemartinez,Today to my surprise I found this man Carlos is his name. Weaving a fishing net in his car.He tells me he learned as a boy from other fisherman in Loiza Puerto Rico which is on  northern eastern side a coast town with a river that runs out to the Atlantic ocean.He was waiting for his wife.Which he tell me sometimes is bothered by him always going fishing.He retired from construction and catches only as much as his wife and him can eat.He also says weaving the net is like a threapy very relaxing.Rio Piedras Puerto Rico.
