Caption

Stilt fishermen in Sri Lanka. Fishing from stilts is carried out on coral reefs along the south-western coast of Sri Lanka near Galle. The fishermen sit on a cross bar called a petta. This is tied to a vertical pole planted into the coral reef. The stilt is held with one hand, with a rod or line in the other hand. This method disturbs the fish less than the use of nets.
