Pole Fishing Sri Lanka

I had been planning a trip to Sri Lanka for sometime, had been wanting to go even longer.  The very first image I ever saw was of Pole Fishing.  This is now a long lost practice only maintained for the sake of tourist photos.  Like a living museum this still gives a glimpse of what life would have been like.  While it remains no more in the sense of a real practice the image and what it meant for me does.  It is a simple life of taking only what you need.  It isn’t mass consumption or production.  It isn’t easy or hard, it doesn’t advantage or disadvantage.  On that pole you catch what you can, carry what you need and hopefully live simple.
