Fishermen of Guangxi

The Jing people of China's Guangxi Region all fish on stilts. Unlike the stilt fishermen of Sri Lanka who put wooden poles in the water and climb on them to fish, the Jing fishermen actually walk on stilts casting huge nets. This allows them to reach deep waters and avoid any foot injuries from clams or sharp rocks.
