Unusual way of fishing

In a small village called Weligamma (Sri Lanka), local fisherman have adopted an almost unique way of fishing. Each fisherman has a long pole with a crossbar that is stuck in the seabed close to the shore. The fishermen swim out to these poles and then perch on the crossbar, cast out their lines, and wait patiently for a nibble. The origin of this unusual fishing technique is unknown, but it is so successful that each stilt position is highly prized and handed down from father to son.
