How it works:
- Stilt fishing is done by holding fishing rods while sitting on top of large poles. However, some are not actually fishing, but just there to pose for photos.
- Once you have taken a photo, their accomplices on the beach will come over and demand an inflated fee.
Places to beware:
- Galle: Koggala
- Matara: Waligama
What to do:
- Stand your ground or if you are willing to pay, only give a small amount.
