The sky is still crying out loud ... so is our hearts now.
Looking out of the window ... howling winds ... dark sky ... a round of thunder storm is inevitable ...

Alright ... here it goes ... aunty starts to complain liaoz ...
We were at FW3 over the weekends ... to catch up with some long lost friends of ours.
However ... an unhappy incident has tainted the mood ...
I notice I did not have a single picture to share ! :(
Or was it that I do not want to remember we did went to FW3 that faithful day. lol ! :lol:

This is what happened ...
We were the early birds as usual ... pond was not very crowded ... managed to find our favourite spot right at the far back.
Merely settle down ... it started to rain heavily ...
It was such heavy rain ... I start to worry if it will even stop.
Enjoying ourselves in the rain ... getting ourself wet ! :yay:

Rain slowed to a light drizzles ....

Simon got the first hit ...
Though he was quick to ran forward ... grab rod and strike ... missed !
Fish ran straight to the structures opposite the clock towers ... leader gave way.

Nvm nvm ... quickly set up and cast ...
Again ... he got a take ...
waited for fish to swallow the food ... waited out .... lines tightened and strike !
OMG ... there goes another miss ... this time ... main line snapped.

Whats going on ... ? :rant:

Set up rig again ...
And yes ... you're right ... fish likes to find him de worr ...
Got another take !
This time ... strike and something happen to his reel ...
The bail arm area came off ! :lol: :shh:
Line went loose and so did the fish too ...

Luckily ... we always have a spare set at the back of the boot ...
Bo bians liao ... borrow and use ! ;)
Certate 2500 Custom R ... line at least 15lbs ... time to hook the fish firmly liaoz ! :mischieve:

Simon took his time to set up his new tackle ...
By now ... pond is very crowded ... almost every corner got rods and lines.
I was chatting up with this ang mo who was fly fishing there ...
Sad however .. staff was unable to provide him with information like depth of pond etc ...
I see this Englishmen as a good start to inviting more of such fishermen to FW3.

Simon was all ready by now ... bait in a dead tambam ... cast n wait ...
After missing 3 times straight in a row ... he is determined to give a firm hookup this time.
Yes ... you got it right again ... a strong take ... a firm set and it's fish on ! :D
Fish swam with such force it's a confirm mama CPC pattern liaoz ...
Line went out from spool ... slowly ... slowly ...
There is nothing you can do when mama CPC is taking a stroll :lol:
That was a good 5-10 mins of fun when the most feared scenario took place ...

Fish swam to the opposite and caught on someone's line ...
Worst ... the angler thought he got a take and started fighting for the fish as well ...
Xiao Pang was right besides this Chinese gentleman ... but he failed to noticed it's a foul hook
Ended up ... two anglers fighting for the same fish ... line peel out faster as fish in stress ...
The other angler was too excited ... pumping like no tomorrow ...
Xiao Pang keep shouting from opposite ..."where is your line ...where is your line ... "
Instead of trying to figure out if it's the same fish ....

Simon was so sad by now ...
I remembered telling Simon since he set the fish first ... chances are he is able to control the fish ...
But at the rate the other angler is pulling in the fish ...
It's either he let go or we let go situation liaoz ...
Looking at the situation ... Simon is such nice gentleman ... let go his line ... yet again !
I would have hold on .... hehe ... :lol:

Fish was landed by the other angler.
A mama CPC lor ... :rant:
Lifted out of water ... flashes from camera and happy faces ...
There were two sad ones too ! lol !

Then came the blow .... Xiao Pang came over to our side ...
Tried to explain what happen ...
We ask him if Simon hook was on the fish ... answer was a firm YES!
I knew Simon was in bad mood liaoz ... told Xiao Pang mai gong liao ...
But he continues to babble off ... trying to make his stand he was merely asking where is our line etc etc ...
We were not trying to pin point if it's his fault.
We fully understand that such incident do happen given the limited size of the pond and no.s of anglers around ...
It's not the first time such incident took place ...

What irritating was ... Xiao Pang mentioned ... “人家第一次来这里玩。。。"

The question is ... didn't we pay $30 too ?

Just last week ... Simon foul hook a mama CPC ...
Being playing long enough at the pond ...he was able to tell us it's a foul hook after fighting awhile ...
On hearing foul hook ... Xiao Pang told us ... foul hook cannot take picture you all know hor ? 0.o

Simon asked Xiao Pang why people foul hook can take picture ?

And there goes more explanation ...

I tried to stop Xiao Pang again ... asking him to stop explaining and move away ...
But he choose to stand there .... carry on talking ....
The more he tried to explained ... the more complicated the matter becomes ...
He should have just walked away and talk another day ...

We would have left immediately after the incident if our friends were not already on their way ...
Thank god they came ... we tucked into pipping hot fried chicken and forgot all about the incident.
Lifted the mood a little and we had a good nite laughing and catching up with one another ...

I have this to say ...

Customers are always right ...

But he choose to send the message across to us ... Customers are not always right ! ::x:

A picture less catch report ... NPNT !

Adiós ~ :grin:

Hi dBs,

Sorry to hear about Simon's lost mama cat. :(

Reminds me of our first hookup with a mama cat @ FW3. The cat swam over to the opposite side and tangled up 2 other lines. We shouted, "Cross lines" but the other 2 fishermen did not release their lines. Instead they asked me to release mine. I did not have enough line on my tiny spinning reel and told them so. Another fisherman also told them to release their lines. But they buat boduh and started to fight the fish with me. Eventually, we tugged and tugged until all 3 lines floated up in the air and the fish was lost. :rant:

You can imagine the disappointment my kids felt when the fish was lost - our 1st CPC! Their young dreams shattered by selfish grown-ups. I told them never mind and that eventually we will land one. Happy to say that since then we have landed 3 fat mamas. :nod: :nod: :nod:

i got my fairshare of story oso

one night, when dbs and coy all left

i was alone fishing

i'm kosong the whole nite until about 2am
i got a take

i strike and it's on
fighting for awhile, a grp of ppl opp ask me release line
with benefit of doubt, i let go, let them fight

so waiting
until 4am, i got a take

this time i'm very concious
i strike and i quickly look around, no ppl was fighting any fish
so i start to pump

then later, the opp grp again, ask me let go
i shout back, say i got the fish first
and they diam diam
but then, after awhile, 1 ppl from their grp actually walk over to me
ask me to let go

what the heck, walk all the way to me, ask me let go?
i told him, when i strike tat time, i see no ppl fighting, this is my fish

guess what, their grp oso dun release line for me even though i told him this
so i pump, they oso pump, the poor cat was been hoist up right in the middle of the pond...

i fedup, thumb the reel to breakline and pack up

:mad:
