Photo and caption by Günther Bayerl

the inefficient technique of stilt fishing is unique to the state of sri lanka and is only performed in the southern coastal areas. but it's dying out. the catch is too small and the fishermen make more money with tourists nowerdays. this image is symbolic for the extinction of the tradition of stilt fishing.

Location: Koggala, Sri Lanka
