Stilt Fishing, a tradition unique to Sri Lanka. It is a practice struggling to survive in an era when large scale fishing and trawlers have drastically impacted the old ways of the job ๐ŸŸ โ€ขโ€ขโ€ข #adventurewithpriscylla #stiltfishing #stiltfishermen #srilanka #srilankabeach #srilankasouthcoast #wanderlustsrilanka #srilankadaily

I remember the afternoon I took this photo. We were driving down a coastal road in Sri Lanka and I was mesmerized by the water and the stilt fishermen along the shore. I just had to get a quick snapshot. Sri Lanka is such a beautiful place. โค๏ธ . . . . . #srilanka #beach #stiltfishing #stiltfishermen #travelgram #travelphotography #travel #travelmoreworryless #travellover #seetheworld #explorer #wanderlust #gltlove #glt #girlslovetravel #theworldthroughmyeyes #traveller #ilovetravel #worldtraveler #traveladdict #instago #instagood #traveling

Sunset in Koggala. Although stilt fishermen are mostly tourist attractions these days, it's nice to be reminded of the cultural and historical ways of this country. #srilankatravel #srilanka #visitsrilanka #koggala #exploresrilanka #stiltfishing #southasia #travel #sunset #mypassionsfruit

The iconic sight of stilt fishermen at sunset. Requiring patience and skill, often for very little reward, these fishermen can been seen all along the South and South-West coast. Many of them make additional income by posing for tourists, however for most, like these at Dalawella Beach, it's a way of life that supports them and their families. ๐Ÿ“ท: @thefoodiemiles #srilanka #travel #wanderlust #fishing #stiltfishing #travelgram #holiday #vacation #experience #explore #reddottours

Stilt Fishing is one of the most interesting traditional fishing methods of Sri Lanka. . The beautiful sight of fishermen perched on branched poles as they fish skillfully can be seen southern coastal towns. From a distance it might look effortless and easy but it requires lot of skill and balance. A vertical pole with an attached crossbar is embedded into the sea floor among the shallows, or on a riverbed. The crossbar allows the fishermen to be seated a couple of meters above the water causing minimal surface interruptions #fishing #srilanka #asia #island #stiltfishing #fish #marine #marinelife #stilt #ocean #indianocean #matara #mirissa #colombo #instagood #instatravel #bbctravel #natgeo #delhi #mumbai #india #unitedarabemirates #dubai #sea #lonelyplanet

Still Fishing is one of the most traditional fishing method in Sri Lanka. They perch on poles as they fish during different times of the day. I spoke to few local fishermen and they mostly fish during dawn and dusk. There are few fishermen these days who simply pose for photographs and are known for their notorious habits of asking money. So if you see them in the afternoon time, you would know that they arenโ€™t fishing. . . . . #budpoi #i_hobbygraphy #_TAP #photography_from_best #travalour #traveller #travelphotographer #travelblogger #natgeotravellerindia #natgeodailyshot #natgeoyourshotphotographer #dslrofficial #travelphotography #indiantravelsquad #GIP #natgeotravel #indiantravelblog #indiantravelblogger #indiaphotostory #lonelyplanet #indiantravelblogger #lonelyplanet #pheritales #travelblogger #tripoto #tripotocommunity #oph #OutlookTraveller #beautifuldestinations #trell

More Bethel pix. They had cool refreshments like smoothies and local snacks. Then we got to pretend to be stilt fisherman. This type of fishing is only done in Sri Lanka. . . . . #srilanka #specialconvention2018 #jw #bestlifeever #jehovahswitnesses #worldwidebrotherhood #love #unity #entertainment #bethel #tours #stiltfishing #fishersofmen

One off my bucket list! Stilt fishermen in Sri Lanka. Calmness, patience, skill, balance One hopes that this tradition never disappears. Posing with tourists has become a necessity for both the survival of the fisherfolk and their way of life. One ponders upon the intersection between customs and tourism. . . . #srilanka #srilankatrip #streetphotographer #streetphotography #stiltfishing #stiltfishermen #stiltfishingsrilanka #streetphoto #streetphotographycommunity #lkstreets #femaletraveler #juantravelstosrilanka

Stilt Fishing is one of the most interesting traditional fishing methods of Sri Lanka. Records indicate that it came into being just after World War II. This mode of fishing was more widely used all along the coast until the tsunami in 2004 which caused such activities to cease temporarily until recent years. Though stilt fishermen make the activity seem easy and comfortable; stilt fishing requires much skill and balance. A vertical pole with an attached crossbar is embedded into the sea floor among the shallows, or on a riverbed. The crossbar allows the fishermen to be seated a couple of meters above the water causing minimal shadows on the water and hence little to no disturbance amongst the sea life. The stilt fishermen then use a rod from this precarious position to bring in a good catch of spotted herrings and small mackerels from the comparative shallows of the sea or from the river. They collect the catch in a bag tied to the pole or to their waist.
