Nam Dinh
Stilt fishing is one of the most interesting traditional fishing methods used by fishermen in Vietnam. Records indicate that it was first used over hundreds of years ago.

Though Vietnamese stilt fishermen make it look easy and comfortable, stilt fishing requires a great deal of skill and balance, stilt walking often being seen in the circus.

A bamboo pole is attached to the fishermen's legs, allowing them to move around muddy beaches and stand above the water level.

The fishermen use a v-shaped net to catch spotted herring and small mackerel from the shallows. They collect their catch in inner bag.

يعد صيد الأسماك على ركائز أحد أكثر طرق الصيد التقليدية إثارة للاهتمام التي يستخدمها الصيادون في فيتنام. تشير السجلات إلى أنّه تم استخدامها للمرة الأولى منذ مئات السنين.

وعلى الرغم من أنّ الصيادين الفيتناميين يجعلون الأمر يبدو سهلاً ومريحاً، إلا أنّ الصيد على الركائز يتطلب قدراً كبيراً من المهارة والتوازن، وغالباً ما نشاهد المشي على ركائز في عروض السيرك فقط.

يتم ربط عمود من الخيزران بأرجل الصيادين ليتمكّنوا من التحرك حول الشواطئ الموحلة والوقوف فوق مستوى الماء.

يستخدم الصيادون شبكة على شكل حرف V لصيد سمك الرنجة المرقط والماكريل الصغير من المياه الضحلة، ثم يجمعون صيدهم في حقائبهم الداخلية.
