Re: Tamban's sotong adventures from down under

Definitely! Now all i need to do is to find a sunset where there isn't too many clouds so that the whole sky would have those amazing colors! If in doubt, always fish 1-2hours before sunrise/sunset! Make sure you keep working the jig and not parking your rod at the railing. taking the picture was ea...
