Predictions, Planning and Wishlist for 2008

A brand new year. A brand new beginning. This year there will be no wager between Danny and myself. Danny has gone on sabbatical. Hopefully he will be back next year. As for me, life goes on.

I foresee my self fishing less this year. I would try to make one trip per month if it is possible. I have an upcoming trip at the end of this month. I will be at Pulau Jarak from 26/1/08 till 28/1/08. Among the people that will be going on this trip are Damien (my fishy tales blog) and Wan Izhan (Pelareef Hookers Blog). Bob from Anjung Kail will also be on this trip with his camera crews.

For the time being, the Pulau Jarak trip is my only confirmed trip for this year. I am planning to do a minimum of one trip per month for the whole of 2008. I hope that this can be achieved. So far there are some plans made to go fishing in Pulau Sembilan, Pulau Jarak and Rompin. I hope that these trips can materialize.

As for tackle, I don't plan to invest heavily this year. For the past few years, I have been doing a lot buying and somehow I ended up with tackles that I bare use, or haven't use. If my memories don't fail me, I have about 10 reels and equal number of rods. I did mentioned in my last few postings that I am planning to sell off some of my tackle. I still haven't found the time to properly catalog the items that I have. Once I am done, I will be posting them online for all to view.

Having said that, I still have a wish list wish which I seriously doubt that I can achieve. Most of the items are high end stuff and going by my financial status, I doubt that it is achievable. Anyway, the things that is in my wish list are as below.

Rod
  1. Golden Mean Sable Dance
  2. Shimano JigWrek
  3. Shimano Kaibutsu
  4. Any good bottom bashing rod
Reel
  1. Daiwa Morethan Branzino
  2. Daiwa Saltiga (any model)
  3. Any good bottom bashing reel
I know that the items that I have listed above are way beyond my mean. We shall see in the next 363 days if this wish list can be achieved.

Anyway, to all my readers, I would like to thank you for your support so far and hopefully this year would be a better year for all of us in fishing.
