Summer Days Photo a Day Project, Day 22, Jan 16. Brian got up at 4am today to go on a fishing charter in the bay with Gerard. I used to enjoy fishing too until a few trips where we caught nothing at all and i nearly lost my mind in the boredom of waiting for a nibble. Brian arrived back home at 11am predictably empty handed, and with some bizarre story about how on this charter boat the captain set the rods up, baited them, and put them in holders, then everyone sat around waiting for a fish to strike at which time one elected person would try to reel in the fish. Thats fishing???? Nope, not in my book. I might hate waiting all day for a fish to bite, but at least when it does i have the excitement of feeling it nibble and reeling it in myself, not to mention the joys of personally baiting a hook with stinky dead squid! So glad i didnt go. Gerard did manage to catch a 3 kg snapper and took pity on us fishless family, inviting us round for dinner to eat it. Was quite nice, as was the wine, and the company :)
