Weligama, which is literally translated as 鈥榮andy village,鈥 has a long stretch of fine golden sandy beach and is famous for its stilt fishermen. Stilt fishing sees the fishermen standing on a pole in the shallow waters, this explains where the name of the technique is originated from. No-one knows where or even when this form of fishing originated, but local people are particularly proud of this old tradition, as well as exclusive. However, it is a technique which hardly survives in the modern world nowadays. Indeed, the sad truth is these fishermen make more money from tourist donations in a day than they would from selling the fish they catch sitting on these stilts. Visitors can see this unique sight in this part of Sri Lanka. Eventually, with an extra donation, you can also stand on the plank to take a pic of yourself, as it happened to me! Weligama, che letteralmente si traduce come "villaggio di sabbia", ha una lunga striscia di spiaggia fine e dorata ed 猫 famosa per i suoi pescatori sui pali. Questo tipo di pesca vede i pescatori in piedi su un palo in acque poco profonde, da qui si spiega da dove ha avuto origine il nome della tecnica. Nessuno sa dove o anche quando sia nata questa forma di pesca, ma la popolazione locale 猫 particolarmente orgogliosa di questa antica ed esclusiva tradizione. Tuttavia, si tratta di una tecnica che difficilmente sopravvive nel mondo moderno oggigiorno. Infatti, la triste verit脿 猫 che questi pescatori guadagnano pi霉 denaro dalle donazioni turistiche in un giorno di quanto non ne ricaverebbero dalla vendita del pescato. I visitatori possono vedere questo spettacolo unico in questa parte dello Sri Lanka. Alla fine, con una donazione extra, puoi anche stare sull'asse per scattarti qulche foto, come 猫 successo a me! #travelling #srilanka #srilankatravel #srilankadiscovery #discovertheworld #discoveryworld #discoversrilanka #weligama #goldensand #travelphotography #travelphotographer #streetphotography #streetphoto #streetleaks #streetphotographysrilanka #lensculturediscovery #instagood #instatravel #picoftheday #amazingsea #amazingplaces #amazingwater #fishing #stiltfishing #stiltfishingsrilanka #fishinglife #fish #best_in

The stilt is kept high because shadows in the water frighten away the fish : There are many fishing villages dotting the coast of SriLanka. Using nets, boats, stilts and even hand made stick and line they use it as a primary source of income. Fishing is one of the main sources of income and food for towns and villages along the coast line. You can sit by the beach and watch many people get together and drag in the nets, followed by separation of the catch and an immediate sale. : You can find the short story about them in my IGTV : #StiltFishing #SriLanka #travel #trip #discover #sunset #goprohero5 #ig_world_colors #igs_world #awesome_photographers #theworldshotz #wonderful_places #loves_world #just_features #worldbestgram #loves_united_world #igworldclub #bestcitybreaks #ig_worldclub #top_world_photo #worldplaces #super_world_channel #global_capture #hot_shotz #global_hotshotz #got__greatshots #lost_world_treasures #worldwidecapture_ #lovetheworld #world_inside @gopro @sony @sonyalpha @sonymea

Pristine blues that encaptures the soul. Stilt fishing is an art of fishing on stilts from Srilanka, practised in the south coast around Kogalla. Those stilts are passed on as inheritance over the generations as they are a little away from the coastline. The hotspot gets you the most fish and hence more successful fishermen. Unfortunately due to the high volume of tourist there are village people who would just climb up the stilts and ask Tourist for money to take pictures. Not one picture can be taken spontaneously without being noticed because you shouldn鈥檛 underestimate those fishermen. What might look like a tedious task of climbing the stilts and getting off, they can jump off in a jiffy and chase you for taking unwanted pictures. . . #travelandleisure #travelgram #travelblogger #travelholic #traveldairies #travel_drops #travelbag #travelphotography #traveller #travelandliving #natgeoyourshot #cntgiveitashot @cntravellerindia #cnntravel #bbctravel #stiltfishing #fishermen #bluesky #bluewater #travelgram #travelingram #travelinspiration #fishing #beautiful #extraordinary #mytravelgram #photography #photographer #worldtravelpics #wanderlust #gypsysoul

Stilt fishermen go out for up to two hours at a time, depending on how quickly they can fill up their bags with fish. Sometimes it only takes 20 minutes! They sit on the horizontal cross bar of the stilt, hold on with one hand and fish with the other using a fishing rod. The rods are erected by 3 people, two on the surface in a boat, and one diver who digs a hole and directs the stilt into it. They have to be skilled, work together, and work fast. Stilt etiquette allows others to use a stilt, but if the 鈥榦wner鈥 arrives then they get priority. They can last up to 6 months of they are metal, and 9 months of they are metal. The wooden ones gets nibbled away by a sea creature. The best time to fish is early morning or late in the evening, because of how the sunlight effects the water. - - - #hillsandwaves #travelphoto #adventure #traveling #fisherman #srilankanfishermen #stiltfishermen #stiltfishing #backpackers #wanderers #travelingtheworld #travelsrilanka #srilankatravel #visitsrilanka #srilanka #lonleyplanet #intrepidtravel @destination_srilanka @intrepidtravel

馃搷Koggala 鈥 鈥 鈥 鈥 鈥 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. The beautiful sight of fishermen perched branched poles as they fish skillfully during dawn, noon and dusk; can now be commonly along the southern coast in towns such as Koggala, Kaththaluwa and Ahangama. Occasional stilt fishermen can also be seen amongst the waters of Madu River, etc. 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. But this is no fishermen. This is gorgeous @silviakeckes doing a wonderful job posing馃槝馃挄鉂わ笍 #srilanka #travelsrilanka #visitsrilanka #stiltfishing

Stilt fishing is a traditional fishing technique in Sri Lanka. Wooden poles are erected generally about 2 metres above the sea bed and the fishermen sit on a wooden crossbar to do their fishing. The fishermen used the old fashioned rods with bait to do the fishing. It's tedious and time-consuming work, sadly this practice is struggling to survive in this era.
