Mysterious Dredging

An enigmatic scene in a stream in a forest. (Click to enlarge.) Four men--variously, and oddly, dressed--seem to be searching for something underwater with poles and a rake. Why does one think (as if by default) it must be a body?

Though the men don't have a net, the image reminds me somehow of Eudora Welty's 'The Wide Net'--one of her brilliant bucolic tragicomedies.
