Daklis is an Ilocano term for net fishing. They employ the use of a huge fish net to catch. Last December I had the chance to witness daklis in the town of Currimao wherein the townsfolk help each other pull the big net for more than two hours under the scorching heat of the sun. Everyone was enjoying the activity most especially when they were nearing the catch and the fish start jumping on the net. This particular documentation took place infront of the Sitio Remedios Resort owned by Dr Cuanang. Also witnessing the daklis was National Artist for Visual Arts Bencab.
In this particular daklis, the catch was the fish monamon usually made into a kilawin or prepared raw by sprinkling it with calamansi juice, ginger, onions and some tidbits of tomatoes. It is popularly used in making bagoong.
