Recently my brother Bogs, the most active among the Tarlac Anglers, and my son Naven (the youngest member) decided to do some freshwater fun fishing in a pay pond in Gerona, Tarlac (Philippines). They hoped to catch the dining-table-favourite and ever reliable tilapia, the elusive “hito” (catfish) and the fearsome “dalag” (mud fish or snakehead). The wild pond is a sight to behold for anglers alike. It offers a lot of promises and probably surprises from its looks alone. They were not disappointed. Tilapia appeared to has big appetite that day and is continuously hooked and reeled one after the other.
I can see how my son is enjoying the sports. He has been always like that whenever we go fishing. The joy, the thrill, the excitement and the fun are always mirrored by his eyes and revealed by his smiles.
Since his young age when we started bringing him to important fishing trips, every moment captured in photos will tell a story. Some will narrate about love and bonding.
