Was too busy with work and these are some of the flies that I actually managed to finish it up for the past 3 nights. Heard from Henry working in Coho fly shop that black color flies are effective there. In the end I really did bought some black deceiver hackle feathers.

Tried a few nghts of dry casting and decided to hit the water at Ground Zero one evening. It was exceptionally windy and difficult to cast. No sights of peacock bass despite wearing polarised sunglass. Managed to induce a strike from a haruan using a size 6 charlie but did not managed to secure a solid hook up. Palm size peacocks chasing flies but no solid bite again. Finally managed to land a small haruan on my size 1 black deceiver but was very unfortunate not to manage to take a picture. The haruan jumped back into the edge of the water when Im taking out my camera.

Renzetti Fly Vise…

After long consideration due to budget constraint, I have finally decided to spill my milk on a Renzetti Saltwater Traveler 2200 Cam Series Vise. The tying sequence is never compromised by unwanted hook movement, and minimal pressure on the lever holds the hook rock steady. I have therefore retired my cheap and rusty Indian vise to the banished realm…

Long Story Cut Short
1. Saw some of my past catches and was keen to go back into fly fishing.
2. Bought fly fishing set
3. Practice casting
4. Bought hooks, epoxy and thread
5. Resume fly tying hobby with old materials
6. Sloppy results but think still able to catch some fishes with this Pink n Green charlie.

Jungle Perch aka Sebarau on 5wt Redington Rod which were taken on the Pink Thing many donkey years ago

My first fly tying after so many years…Not the best but I love my stuff!

Adding on the flashers commonly found on Sabiki jigs.

Final product that is eager to get devoured by some aggressive fishes. I know the head wrap is ugly…

Reached the Punggol prawning pond at about 1.30 a.m. Quite crowded but did not noticed anyone landing prawns. We decided to go for the kill instead. I broke my own record again! I landed my first prawn in less than 20 seconds and this actually stunned the Malay couple beside me! What an expression! However the prawns are not biting actively at all after that. We could see the prawns but they are not abit interested. Wind was blowing cold and hard which caused Michelle to hibernate at one corner. I managed to caught the biggest prawn of the night which was a consolation but we only bagged 18 prawns after 3 hours of prawning. It was really boring. Yawnz…
