I stopped by at the Kranji Coffee Shop to have my morning kopi-O with Uncle Chui and Chris. It was still drizzling, but we intend to set off regardless of the rain. I was about to drive off at the Kranji Coffee Shop when the phone rang. Uncle Wong was on the line. They were already there and all ready for action. With Uncle Wong was Ady and Kuan.

I met up with them at the Scout Camp. The drizzle had stopped. The rest of the merry gang had not arrived. We decided to set out to try to catch the tilapias with dry flies as the sun rises. But it wasn’t to be. Thai workers were already in the water near our casting zone and the fish had all disappeared. Uncle Wong went over the other side of the banks and caught some fishes. I moved to the another pond with Hans. Caught a few steroid loaded peacock basses and some tilapias.

Rain came and we decided to call for an interval. Roti prata and kopi-O at Kranji Coffee Shop as usual.

McDowell Bamboo Rod

As usual, we arrived just when the sky was being light up by the sun.

But the Thais were already in the waters collecting their catches.

A wonderful day for friends to gather.

Another red tilapia

Then a fish put a bend on the McDowell

Just a handy size and it put up a steroid loaded fight.

McDowell is a deciple of AJ Thramer

Another smaller peacock bass

Very colourful super red tilapia

Picture a bit blurr because my hand was jumping about with the fish.

Uncle Chui was reluctant to call it a day because he was catching fishes.

Roti prata. With the whole dish of curry on it.

Roti prata and kopi-O is my favourite booster after fishing.
