VUACnRuOMES (C)N.G.S. Nets at the ready, Para guay's Maka Indians stride fearlessly through a piranha infested lagoon. Each man wields a length of mesh hung between two seven-foot poles. Swiftly he plunges the net into shallow water and snaps the poles together, trapping the fish. The catch is cooked over an open fire (below); bared teeth identify piranhas at upper right. A Maka (left) savors the sizzling dorsal flesh. "As good as broiled bass," reports the author.
