2 Handsome Tilapias

Bakry, Rodney and I went fishing again today. Our target species to day is Flower Horn for Bakry's aquarium. We started fishing at 3.30pm until 5.45pm. Today, we were puzzled because not many fish biting our bait..sadly there were signs that the flowerhorn's paradise has been netted.
However, we have landed 2 Tilapias which is not in our target species for that day. The three of us went home with a happy face.

Introduction to Fly Fishing

I started to fly fish 2 years ago. Courious on how it can fish...the techniques and the art of making flies.

What You Need To Know

Fly Rod
The rod is different from other fishing rod. What we really fimiliar with to an ordinary rod is the poundage or the PE or the rod, but for a fly fishing rod it is catogarised as Weight (Wt) from Wt 0 (lightest) to Wt 12 (heaviest)

The line consist of wt0 to wt12 which need to be matched with the rod. Lines can be floating, sinking, intermediate. these types of lines to suit your need in targetting what types of fish you want to fly.

The flies are vary. Freshwater and saltwater patterns could be made..the beautiful part is you can make your own flies.

I'm still in the process of learning of the art of flyfishing.. what I write here is not a complete information of fly fishing but the basic things you need to know before starting to become a fly fisherman.

Fishing At Belakang Pasar Ikan - Not Buying Fish Lah

Fasting month is coming soon, daytime fishing at the sea would be treacherous for me. However, this would not stop me to fish hehe. I remembered before I participated actively offshore fishing I used to fish at belakang pasar sandakan with Bob and Bakry. As far as I remember, the best catch for me is the small Ketambak, but for Bob he managed to land several Mangrove Jacks, Groupers and not to mention Gelama. Here are some pictures taken.

Sg. Assam, Bad Weather and Bad Catch

Today, Bob, Bakry, Rod, Jason and two new comers Bob kecil and Nik and I went to Sg. Assam. I would say this trip is not as fruitful as before. Due to bad weather condition, strong current and wind, we have to end the trip early.I caught a 2 kilos 7 star and a palm size grouper but I'm not really happy about that because some of my fishing buddy didn't catch anything. I hope in our next trip the new comers will catch a lot of fish.

Happy faces..

Rodney and I
