Unproductive Trip for Snakehead

I was invited to a first opening session of a snakehead pond but the fishes were not co-operative. They took no interest on surface lures, mid divers and deep divers. As for me, I still managed 3 hits on my fly setup but failed to register a solid hook up. It was getting boring and tiring to keep casting in a pond of inactive fishes. Owner decided to shift us to another “pond” but water was extremely low. It did not look too attractive at all and extremely challenging for me to cast out my fly. They took no interest in my popper fly as the rest of the lurers were chugging big poppers and getting cautious strikes. I borrowed a luring setup and finally managed to land one 9lb snakehead in which I packed up straight after that. Nevertheless it was a good excursion into nature but not a productive fishing trip.

All smiles but no fish

The not too attractive pond


The most expensive 9lb snakehead I ever landed

Taken underwater at a local fishing spot with Canon D10. After using it for almost a year, this is my comments below. Survived my Maldive trip when 90% of the time the camera was in saltwater while doing fly fishing.

Built = 4.5/5
Aesthetics = 4/5
Design = 4/5 (Abit bulky for some people but there is a reason)
Picture Quality = 4.5/5 ( For a budget waterproof camera, it beats the Olympus system hands down)
