A quick video of the guys releasing their catch from a quick weekend’s snakehead (Channa Striata) fishing session.
Nice trailer video of spectacular fly-fishing action for Steelhead at Kodiak Island, Alaska.
Another nice video about fly fishing for the Taimen, the largest Salmonid on the planet.

Good ‘ol buddy Poh recently discovered a hidden wild pond. His text message goes like this “…pond infested with haruan… want to try?”.
Haruan INFESTED! OMG. That is like the ultimate way you can ever describe a fishing hole. Resistance is futile. In my case anyway!

What’s in a name?
