#TBT esta es una de las lindas playas de Sri Lanka, #Koggala , en donde al igual que en otras playas del país después de la segunda guerra mundial los pescadores idearon una manera creativa de pescar, parandose en estos palos, sin embargo desde alguno años atras se dieron cuenta que era una actividad que llamaba mucho la atención de los turistas, y que era mucho mas rentable cobrarles por tomar fotos que realmente pescar. Asi que ahora todas las personas que ves haciendo esto realmente son actores. ¿es mejor conservar las actividades asi sean solo actuando o dejarlas como un recuerdo? ¿Pagar solo para montar la foto cool a IG asi no sea real o mantenerse en lo auténtico? Seguro no hay una respuesta correcta, nosotros optamos por la foto que mas nos gustó (sin actores) . . . . #SriLanka #PorlaCarretera #PorlaCarretera2018 #PorlaCarreteraNet #PLCAsia #Travelgrams #Beach #Sea #WW2 #StiltFishing #Fishing #Fake

Sri Lankan Fisherman. Reja è un pescatore locale ad oggi in attività. Vive del suo lavoro, tramandato dal padre, usando tecniche più moderne rispetto al vecchio Stilt Fishing oramai quasi del tutto scomparso. #photography #man #traditional #stiltfishing #fishing #fish #nature #travel #beach #weligama #srilanka #fujifilm_xseries #fujifilmxt20 #fujifilm

Se va poniendo el sol, llegan los barcos, los pescadores se bajan de sus mástiles de la playa, vuelcan sus capturas, llega la gente desde el lado opuesto al mar, negocian, llega la noche, intercambian rupias, todo desaparece. Ha sido rápido.

Staying in Hikkaduwa doesn't mean missing out on seeing stilt fishermen. Mirissa is a great daytrip from here and you can spot them from the road on your way. 🎣 Bear in mind that you will ask for a payment for taking any snaps and come with some smaller notes to hand (i.e. Not a 5,000) ☺️

Sri Lanka's stilt fishermen 🐟 . . Stilt fishing is unique to Sri Lanka. It is not an ancient tradition, but developed during world war two due to food shortages and to fence off other overcrowded fishing spots. After the devastating tsunami in 2004, most stilt fishermen switched to other trades such as farming. Nowadays, they rent their stilts to others who pose for tourists - pretending to be fishermen... I am still not sure how to feel about this, but at least they keep the tradition alive I guess 😞 #fishermen #srilanka #ceylon #exploresrilanka #stiltfishing #sun #sea #palmtrees #travel #travelphotography #visiting #instatravel #naturephotography #traveltheworld #backpacking #aroundtheworld #wanderlust #explore #exploretheworld #wanderer #travelling #photooftheday #travelgram #happiness

“Stilt Fishermen” è un’antica tecnica di pesca cingalese, ad oggi praticamente scomparsa, svolta da pescatori locali nel sud dello Sri Lanka. Se pur scenografico, questo momento ha avuto un fascino assurdo. #photography #man #traditional #stiltfishing #fishing #fish #nature #travel #weligama #srilanka #fujifilm_xseries #fujifilmxt20 #fujifilm

Stand of the stilt fisherman, very typical sri lanka. But there is less real stilt fisherman, now they pose for the money so i preferred my picture without them. #srilanka #stiltfishing #travel2018 #photooftheday #explore #todaynews #nature #koggala #nowhereelse #littlefilter #neverstopexploring #beach #world #culture #wanderlust #nature

The stilts minus the fishermen. A very different scene at sunrise and late afternoon when most of the stilts are occupied by local fishermen. #stiltfishing #gurubebila . . . . . . . . #lionsrest #srilanka #gurubebila #weligama #surfsouthsrilanka #beachlife #lifesabeach #seaviews #seaview #fishing #fishermen #coast #indianocean

Long exposure on stilt fishermen . It’s been a while since I used a tripod and Lee filters, mainly because I want to try something different while in Sri Lanka, but I had to do it for once, always thought it could look good on a scene like that 🎣 . . . . #srilanka #midigama #weligama #stiltfishing #traditional #fishing #srilankadaily #longexposure #frenchfolks #leefilters #olympusomd #olympuscamera #myolympus #zuiko #minimalism #minimalmood #instagram #travelphoto #cettesemainesurinstagram

Fishing on stilts is a practice unique to the southern coast of Sri Lanka. Sadly due to lack of fish, this tradition is slowly dying out.. these days, it's more lucrative to pose for passing tourists #fishing #sea #beach #srilanka #stiltfishing #nature #travel #vacation #instatravel #instapassport #traveling #exploring #traveldiaries #travelblogger #fishermen #aroundtheworld #greenery #islandlife #naturephotography #tourist #explore #hiking #adventure #travelgram #travelgirl #wunderlust #traveler #travelpics #stevemccurry #natgeo

Stilt fishing is a traditional fishing technique unique to Sri Lanka. The fishermen don't use nets as it scares the fish, so instead, good old fashioned rods with bait do the trick! The next time you find yourself in the Southern part of the country, do not miss the opportunity to try some stilt fishing. 🎣🐟 #dwellsrilanka

"Stilt fishing is a method of fishing unique to the island country of Sri Lanka, located off the coast of India in the Indian Ocean. The fishermen sit on a cross bar called a petta tied to a vertical pole and driven into the sand a few meters offshore. From this high position, the fishermen casts his line, and waits until a fish comes along to be caught. Although the approach looks primitive and ancient, stilt fishing is actually a recent tradition. The practice is believed to have started during World War II when food shortages and overcrowded fishing spots prompted some clever men to try fishing on the water." #srilanka #galle #fishing #stiltfishing #amazingcaptures24_7 #neverstopexploring #photooftheday #mytraveldiary #mytravelgram #roamtheplanet #welltraveled #globetrotters #tourtheplanet #wanderlust

Stilt fishermen on the south coast of Sri Lanka #srilanka #stiltfishing

Stilt Fishing is one of the most interesting traditional fishing methods of Sri Lanka. We had the opportunity to see them, along the southern coast in towns such as Koggala, Kaththaluwa and Ahangama. To this date stilt fishing had become more of an attraction and less than a tradition #stiltfishing #ahangama #srilanka . . . . . . . .

One day we shall wake up in Sri Lanka Ritipanna is the Sinhalese term for stilt fishing, which is a traditional method for fishing practiced by most fishermen along the southern coast of Sri Lanka. This art is popularly seen in areas such as Ahangama, Koggala, Welipenna,  Kathaluwa and Thalarambe! #srilanka #stiltfishing #beach #bluewater #india #koggala #ahangama #koggala #travelblog #travelinspo #travel

The tsunami that devastated much of the Indian Ocean coastline forever altered the Sri Lankan shoreline and reduced access for stilt fishermen 🎣🐠
