My First Sebarau

It was raining heavily this morning when I woke up at 5.00 AM. Waited for the rain to stop, but it didn't. Going to the fishing spot in such weather is terrible, with the trees falling. Peter and Ronald are hardcore fishermen. They went in all weathers. I went back to sleep reluctantly.
Asked Peter if he was going again in the afternoon. He SMSed back - 3.30 PM. I completed my chores quickly and was there early. 10 minutes later Peter arrived. There was still a slight drizzle.
After catching many temensis babies, my fly line char-bee-hoon. I managed to clear the mess and was taking in the flyline with two hands when I got "stuck". Then it went sideways. "Stuck" flylines don't go sideways. It wasn't jerking like the earlier catches when the temensis were at the end of the line. It kept going left and right. No jerks, it just went. Peter shouted, "Sebarau". I was excited and brought the fish in as quickly as I could. It was indeed a sebarau. My first sebarau. After so many years of trying to catch one, I caught 3 today. Man! What a day.

Caught it with the Brooks Payne 100 rod. The best casting rod in my arsenal.

I know it's a secret but where is this location?
