Family Fishing Trips

Feed Lampans At MacRitchie Reservoir
First day of the school holiday. Yong Zhi wants to feed the lampans. Yong Yun wants to catch one. So off we went to MacRitchie Reservoir at the Cove next to the Little Sister of the Poor. I started preparing the bread for the feeding by breaking it into smaller pieces. I had already rigged up a balloon stick with a mono and a Prince Nymph for Yong Yun. But before everyone could settle down, Yong Yun has already thrown some bread together with the Prince Nymph into the water to feed the lampans. He was shouting,”Papa, I’ve got something one the line.” A lampan.

Upper Peirce Reservoir
There is no designated Fishing Ground here. But every weekend, there are many people catching yabbies or lobsters. Fun too except for the backache after that.

Yong Yun’s First Peacock Bass
Lower Peirce Reservoir. The first fish he caught got away before he could land it. I helped him set the hook so that this second and bigger Peacock Bass didn’t get away this time.
