SYLHET, Bangladesh, Jan. 18 (Xinhua) -- Hundreds of people in Bangladesh's Sylhet district, some 240 km northeast of capital Dhaka, Saturday participated in a fish hunting festival at a beel (marshy land) with polos (traditional bamboo fish traps) in hand.

Every year on the first day of Magh, the 10th month of the Bengali calendar (Jan. 15-16 in Gregorian calendar), local villagers along with guests from elsewhere in the country celebrate the 200-year old festival.
