We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.

I'm back! It's my fourth fishing trip to the kelong. And I'm elated. I finally got my own rod (a friend chose it for me) and it's a very light-weight and flexible rod. It works well for me as I'm not used to heavy rods. (Thanks, Albert.)

And I caught the most number of fish while out at sea. It's my first time! I didn't expect it at all! In fact, I was quite prepared to catch nothing due to my inexperience. But lo and behold, I was 'queen' of the fishing trip! I caught 6 large ('plate size' as my friends termed it) and 1 medium-sized fish. To give you a better idea of the size of the fishes, I measured them against my feet (size 6 and a half or 39). The first white fish is called 'black feet', translated from a local dialect; the second is a groupa and the third, a parrot fish. It's supposed to be a delicacy.

Here are some pictures...
It's really fun! Didn't catch any squid this time though. No sight of any. The morning we left, I managed to catch some small fish that will feed me and hubby for 2 meals.
And of course, fishing has become one of my simple passions too. I'm going to share the 6 large fish with my parents and my in-laws. I didn't bring back the medium-sized fish. It probably went to someone in the group.
Hope your weekend is good too.
P.S. Oops, I hope my craft friends don't get impatient with me for posting this.
After note: A friend who's a fishing fan suggested that the white fish is a trevally. Hmm... Thanks for the tip, Jeffrey.
