Stilt fishing is fishing in relatively shallow water on a platform made up of a stilt. This is a common method employed by Sri Lankan fisherman when fishing in or around reefs not far away from the shore.

Weligama, or "sandy village", is located on the southern coast of Sri Lanka. Situated 144 km southeast of Colombo, Weligama is a popular tourist destination that's most famous for its stilt fishermen who, as the name suggests, fish while standing on stilts. Stilt fishing was the main source of income for residents of Weligama, but locals say it's becoming harder and harder to make ends meet solely through this traditional way of living.
