Mandai Pond Waterfall All White Out

Mandai Pond Waterfall White With Force
After the afternoon showers, water was running everywhere, including the Mandai Pond Waterfall. The overflow on the road was also running at high speed. Could sweep away anyone who put their legs into the rushing water. A beautiful sight indeed.

But Uncle Chui has other things on his mind. He had tied a good number of shrimp flies and can’t wait to get them tested. He was setting up his fly rod as he made his way to the fishing spot we had chosen before hand. Even Tan couldn’t catch up with him and was left behind.

When I reached the spot after my usual dilly dally walk with my camera in my hand. Uncle Chui was already tying his new fly and ready for action. After two casts, he landed his first fish. A beautiful Red Tilapia. More Red Tilapias followed. Tan also caught his fair share of Red Tilapias after I gave him an Uncle Chui shrimp fly.

We made our way to the smaller ponds, but the water was too muddy to catch anything. After a few more tries at some Haruans, we made our way home. Uncle was already asking when we should return to try again.

After the afternoon showers, water was running everywhere. The canal next to the entrance to Mandai Pond. The over flow on the road. Just look at the force of the water current. Dangerous to cross this crossing on foot. Full force. Uncle Chui can't wait to get his newly tied flies to the red tilapias. He was rigging his fly rod as he walked towards the fishing spot.
The waterfall is all white with running water.
