the monsoon's here....
and we were not about to bash the waves...
so we decided to try lake fishing instead !
it has to be lake kenyir, just an hour drive from merang !
fishing in the lake is quite a different experience altogether huh..
the water is forever so still whenever and wherever you go...
chatted up this boat man at the coffee shop &
he quoted us RM180 for 2 hrs..
we threw a challenge ....RM180 if we catch at least 1 fish, else RM150..
he smiled and shook his head ... !
this place is totally still and quiet..!
our chartered boat
first ...to the fish farm to buy baits ..
then we overheard him asking the fish farm owner - "where are the fishes"....ha ha
..this is going to be fun..
.... beautiful sceneries ...
with occasional light drizzle adds to the melancholic scene !
but one thing's missing....the fishes ?
we, 3 old folks cast till our back ache but not even a single bite the whole trip !
boat-man son got some small ones for dinner from his net !
hmm.....somehow, something is just not right....
the water is just too quiet...seems the only life here is the wake of the boat ! ?
after 2 hrs, we headed back.....
paid him and let him have all the baits - intact !
back at the car-park...we overheard a man telling another....
the rate here is RM150 for half a day !
shoot....ha ha ..
have boat will travel......deutzia nautical
