Fishermen on Stilts

A magical evening with the stilt fishermen while watching the sunset somewhere in between Weligama and Unawatuna certainly belongs to the highlights of a visit in Sri Lanka…

The hard cover of Lonely Planet is just one example for praising the unique fishing method of the local fishermen in Sri Lanka.

Thereby, the local fishermen have to walk through deep waters to reach their poles which are some meters off the beach. While sitting on their cross bars they repeatedly throw in their lines of the fishing rods until a fish hopefully catch their baits. The scenery is just breath taking and absolutely worthwhile to see.
