Kannu has never fished, poor chap. My fault altogether. Specially being a bong kid. What a shame. But there is a reason, he wasnt very keen on slimy stuff. But he is now a man and should know fishing at least. So I decided to take him fishing and hope to get him to learn about it. He was a bit squeamish about it before but he was fine. Here are some of the photographs of the trip. We actually didn't manage to catch anything but had several bites. He also caught one but lost it at the last moment. Poor chap. But still, something to learn about.
I grew up fishing in Bhopal, with nets, with mud dams and of course with fishing rods. Caught small fish, large fish, crabs, you name it. I love fishing, i think its one of the most relaxing activities that you can do, as long as you don't get excited. It teaches you patience. And now that people frown on hunting, fishing is the best activity. I don't understand how people can get excited about hunting say foxes but are ok with me hunting trout. Anyway, that’s for another day and another blog.
One of my colleagues has a brother who runs these courses, we had about 10 of us, each who ponied up about £30 quid, this included everything including training, rods and equipment, breakfast and lunch and a full day of individual coaching help and fun.
Rack of Rods.
The fish were thrashing away. And then he would pick up a whole bunch of them and walk over to the main pool and dump them.
The fish is frothing up a storm.
Looks brilliant, no?
Sadly, the weather didnt last, and it started chucking it down. Got very miserable actually. But it was a fun time.
