Why Is fishing better than sex?

  1. You don't have to hide your fishing magazines.
  2. It is perfectly acceptable to pay a professional to fish with you once in a while.
  3. If your partner takes pictures or videotapes of you fishing, you don't have to worry about them showing up on the Internet if you become famous.
  4. Your fishing partner doesn't get upset about people you fished with long ago.
  5. It's perfectly respectable to fish with a total stranger.
  6. When you see a really good fisherperson, you don't have feel guilty about imagining the two of you fishing together.
  7. If your regular fishing partner isn't available, he/she won't object if you fish with someone else.
  8. Nobody will ever tell you that you will go blind if you fish by yourself.
  9. You can have a fishing calendar on your wall at the office, tell fishing jokes, and invite coworkers to fish with you without getting sued for harassment.
  10. There are no fishing-transmitted diseases.
  11. If you want to watch fishing on television, you don't have to subscribe to nasty channel.
  12. Nobody expects you to fish with the same partner for the rest of your life.
  13. Nobody expects you to give up fishing if your partner loses interest in it.
  14. Your fishing partner will never say, "Not again? We just fished last week! Is fishing all you ever think about?"

"This joke was ripped of the internet. IT DOES NOT reflects the actual feelings of the owner of the blog."

Angling Code of Conduct

The angling code of conduct is based on consideration for the environvent and other people. Only stupid anglers abuse the code - Don't be one of them!

Code of Conduct is as follows:
  1. Respect all plant and animal life.
  2. Dispose of litter properly.
  3. Follow local fishing regulations.
  4. Release fish you will not eat.
  5. Do not disturb other anglers.

During my last fishing trip, I came across a group of anglers who broke rule number 1, 2, 4 & 5. More on that in my next post. I'm in the midst of writing it. Too many incidents happened. Just stay tuned.

Note : This code of conduct was taken from Learn How To Fish website.

Unexpected Offer..!! - OFB Part II

Guess what? Some truly unexpected happened. Our tekong form the previous One Fathom Bank trip called Navin up and offered us something that we couldn't resist. the tekong offered us 24 hour of fishing for only RM 150.oo per person. Good eh...

After much deliberation, we agreed to his invitation. This trip would be in a small group. Apart from me and Navin, Mr. Gan from Fisherman's Wharf, Taman Desa has agreed to join us. Including the tekong, that will make it four of us. The tekong mentioned that he might bring one of his friend along. To cover the cost of the trip according to him.

Details of the trip :
  • Location : One Fathom Bank Lighthouse
  • Estimated time of depature : 3.00 pm (Ex. Tanjung Harapan, Port Klang) - 12 November 2005
  • Estimated time of arrival : 4.30 pm (One Fathom Bank) - 12 November 2005
  • Estimated time of depature : Mid Morning (Ex. One Fathom Bank) - 13 November 2005
  • Estimated time of arrival : Noon (Tanjung Harapan, Port Klang) - 13 November
  • Participants : Navin, Mr. Gan from Fisherman's Wharf and myself (Sharma)
  • Target fish(es) : Queenfish (Ikan Talang), Barracuda (Ikan alu-alu), Mackerels (Ikan Tenggiri), Batfish (telinga gajah), grunt fish (gerut-gerut), Yellowtail scad (selar kuning), snapper (jenahak)

We don't intend to catch all the fishes mentioned above. That is our target. If we are able to get AT LEAST one each type (excluding selar kuning, we are expecting a bunper harvest) we would go back a happy fisherman.

Adois mates.. see yah all when I get back from my fishing trip. Wish me luck and stay tuned for photos and catch report in my next posting.
