Stilt Fishermen

A fisher plants sticks into the shallow water and sits on a crotch on the stick to catch small variety of fish. These fishermen known as “Stilt Fishermen” spend hours for catching fish one by one. They look like a flock of legged birds with their straw hats and the fishing rods. So you too can join them but must be careful to learn to sit on a piece of stick (maybe about 8 inches).
Matara Polhena beach to Koggala beach are the ideal locations and the hot spots for Stilt Fishing by real local fisherman. Just before the sunrise and in evening you can capture this scene.
