Outing With the Boys - Prawning

Sunday, April 18, 2010

We took the boys out for their first prawning (fishing for prawn) experience today.
The spots we went to are several irrigation canals in Samarahan, about an hour drive from the city.
Because the area is low lying, the water is brackish and subject to tide movements.
We used to frequent these places before the boys came along.
Now that they are older, we are introducing them to this activity that we enjoyed so much then.
If they like it, there will be many more weekends like this.
There goes my time for wire jewelry.......
We left at about 1pm and it was a hot! hot! day.
Here are pictures of their/our first prawning experience.

Waiting patiently.
William with his first fishing rod and reel.
Can you believe it? He is so scared of this small little prawn....LOL..
This is the only prawn we caught this trip!
 His first little fish.
We caught few of this but we released them.
The bait! Only hubby dares to touch and handle them. Yucky!
More waiting.
Look familiar? Yeah, wire wrapped rod tip guide...at least my wire wrapping skill still required here...LOL

We met these two boys at the same spot.
Both are only 11 years old but they are expert fishermen.
At the end of the day, they say Yes! they love it and would like to do it again.

What great family photos Mei...it looks as though everyone had a great time for sure!!! It doesn't surprise me that William would be afraid of the prawn...after all it is a new experience for him...I bet after a few trips he won't be afraid of the prawns and he will be putting the bait on all by himself as well!!! :0)

Cheers
