Sri Lanka's Stilt Fishermen
Inspired by For 91 Day’s recent visit to Sri Lanka, I was looking through my photos of our visit there a few years ago. I had forgotten what an interesting country Sri Lanka is. Maybe it’s time for a return visit!
On the southern coast of Sri Lanka, near the small village of Weligama, you can see Sri Lanka’s famous stilt fisherman. They sit for hours on a crossbar attached to a pole, fishing. Each position is so highly coveted that it is passed down from father to son.
From Galle, drive along the coast and, unless it’s not fishing weather, you won’t miss them!!
