Following the Stocking Truck - Chinese Style

Most of us who grew up around stocked trout streams have been witness to the long line of cars following the trout stocking truck from fishing hole to hole. It seems this might not just be a phenomenon unique to the USA. Recently the Chinese government's attempts to restock a polluted river ran in to a bit of a problem.
"Shortly after the release was completed, more than 1,000 residents in Jilin swarmed to the riverbank with nets and other fishing equipment," Xinhua said.
Reminds me of opening day of hatchery support trout season around these parts.
