Satellite Station Secrets

A Really Secret Spot at the Satellite Station
Continue………………… Uncle Chui couldn’t make it because his boss refuse to grant him fishing leave. So I met up with Ah Yeow, Ah Wee and two of his friends. The place was secluded and not easily accessible if you do not know the way. Of course, the construction Thai workers were there all over the place, putting up nets. They seem to know where all the fishes are.

Ah Wee said the action was not as good as yesterday. But for me, it was indeed a worthy secret spot. Peacock basses were all over the place. Just drop a fly into the water and one will grab it. Not much casting space was available. But we managed to roll cast effectively.

I hooked myself with a fly. Ah Wee helped hold my hand for me while I pulled the hooked out myself. Very painful. Made me sit back and think if the fish also felt the same when it was hooked like that.

I didn't have the leisure and time to take any photographs. Caught a few peacock basses. Even before the fishes were landed, the Thai guy was already there.

"Kop Koon..... Kop Koon........... Ah Hiah Kop Koon.........."

And he went on to unhook the peacock basses for me. Smiling like he had won the lottery.

A happy Thai worker. He and his friends collected enough fish to last them the whole month.

This Thai was very helpful.
He help cleared snagged lures and flies by swimming into the water.
When he requested for the fishes for dinner for his group of co-workers, we couldn't refuse.

His friends also caught many with their nets.
