Fly Fishing Singapore Road Show

Fly Fishing Singapore Road Show
Finally we were able to show case what fly fishing has to offer to the residents in Sembawang. Q was the man who had done all the hard work to get us to reach this far. The residents were very impressed with the fishes caught. Especially when flipping through the Fred’s photo album and watching Q’s video presentation.

We have quite a gathering of Fly Fishermen here tonight. I will use the opportunity to put a name to the faces with the photos taken at the Road Show. We also have a celebrity fly fisherman in Pak Amin. He provides guide services to the most beautiful fly fishing places in Malaysia where the most exotic fishes are caught. Pak Amin also has his own range of Fly Rods which he designed himself and are marketed under the name “M Amin”. He will give free casting lessons to any one who purchase his fly rod.

The younger fishermen browsing the displays were mostly interested in the free spin-fly rig we were giving away. A look at their faces suggest that they couldn't wait to try the Spin-Fly Rig quickly at the river just in front of the place where the Road Show was held. The older ones were looking very closely at Fred's photos to hopefully identify some of Fred’s spots from the photo album. Some were even surprised we could catch those fishes right here in our own reservoirs. Many were surprised that fishes can be caught with just a bunch of feathers on a hook.

Uncle Wong and Chee Yung had an impressive display with the bamboo fly rods and bamboo rod building. Uncle Wong explaining the tedious step by step process to build a bamboo fly rod. Chee Yung filling in the stories and histories of bamboo rod fishing and bamboo rod building. We managed to put some boolonium into Albert’s blood stream. Boolonium work faster than polonium and need not cost US$10 million per dose. I can see the effects when he lay his hands on the Wayne and the boolonium sink into his palm as he manoeuvre each cast.

You don't die from Boolonium poisoning. Its even worst.

Residents can get tickets here to take part in games and lucky draws.

In Singapore, snowmen are made of white cloth and stuff with cotton, like a soft toy.

A hint for this Christmas.

All I want for Christmas.

I had a very strong suspicion that they went home took their rods and went straight to the river to try out the Spin-Fly Rig.

So is this guy.

Hey, do you have any information on fishing in Northern Borneo? I am travelling from New Zealand and I want to fly fish while I am there but cannot find any contacts to guide me.
