KITE fishing — a combination of angling and kite flying — is sort of a new trend among the local anglers lately.

Although this method is not new as it had been recorded by Walter William Skeat during his journey across the Malay peninsula in the 1890s, in his book Malay Magic, An introduction to the Folklore and Popular Religion of the Malay Peninsula, kite fishing was used in Singapore by fishermen there to make a living.
