2-Hour Quickies

What would you do if you only had 2-hours to squeeze in a quick fishing fix when you one's desperate to wet a line? Well.. the only obvious places to fish would be 'large-bodies-of-water-that-is-most-conveniently-accessible' (I think you readers know what I mean!)

Which is what Kenny & I did when my mate came back a-visiting from Australia. We had good fun with the Peacock Bass which responded very well to Storm Fluttersticks. They ignored our crankbaits, divers, minnows and poppers but when the Fluttersticks came, they took it without much hesitation.

And then there was the 'light' bashing bit before the heavy downpour came. Water level was high and so that made casting from the shoreline a bit difficult. That's when some casting tricks taught by FG & KH previously became very handy. Thanks to my casting teachers!

Not much happening here except for some small tiddlers until this beautiful specimen came along to whack the X-Rap 8 in Tropical Colour. Not at all a biggie but nevertheless a beautiful fish in its splendour.

Kenny got also some juniors - though small, they put up a fair bit of fight on 4lb line.

No big fish this time but no complaints since we only had time for short fishing quickie....
