Stilt Fishing

Fishermen perched on sticks rooted deep in earth beneath the sea water and fishing, is the most photographed scenery of south and tourists are still more than willing to take a snap or two of this ancient form of fishing that requires skill,practice and of course great patience.

First look at the men on the sticks, you may be mistaken thinking they are statues tied to the sticks on a seated position,but if you look closer you might actually recognize sun-tanned skins of the skilled fishermen barely showing movement. And if you too are patient enough you will be lucky enough to take a photo of them catching dozens of fish within just hours.
