Outing With the Boys - Prawning

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.

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.


  1. What great family photos 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)


  2. awww.......your babies! growing proud they are :D they look very happy!


I like to hear what you have in mind. Thank you for your time.
