Man Digs 50-Ft Hole in Kitchen to Catch Fish!

A Chinese farmer dug a 50ft hole inside his house to go fishing from an underground river beneath his house. It took him 6 months to do so. Now all he does is drop a net into the hole and harvests fish.
After digging his pit down to the river, Li installed a fishing net across it and regularly hauls out fish, so far earning his family nearly £2,000.
"I sell the fish at a wholesale price of 24 yuan (£2.15p) per kilo, but 36 yuan (£3.20p) per kilo for retail," he said.
Li built ladders from his kitchen to the river 16 metres below, and each day he has to go down to check the harvest.

"Its like the "give a man a fish..." proverb. "Teach a man to dig a hole in his kitchen and harvest fish using it, and he can feed a small town"
