Stilt fishermen


Like many of Sri Lanka’s coastal regions Weligama is a bustling fishing port, and it’s here that you’ll also be able to witness the wonderful art of stilt fishing; something you don’t really see as commonly anymore. Perched on the edge of a cross-bar attached to a pole that’s in turn planted deep into the sea bed, these fishermen are able to stay this way for hours on end, and at sunset the vibrant backdrop makes for a visually surreal experience.
