NaPoWriMo : #22

Fishing for high stakes
Probabilities do shock
With luck of the draw

Wants markedly varied
Propensity for success
Not quite ascertained

Stay on the sidelines
Play safe, for happiness not
meant to be gambled

    1. Locally known as Tapah fish a snake-head variety. The bigger ones reputedly a man-eater (not sure how far this is true) This fish was caught in the upper reaches of one of the big rivers at our National Park.

  11. Hank, you are so right. You took the rough seas and caught a WHOPPER! My Lord, that is the Moby Dick of day fishing, ha ha.

    Thanks for your support during our "Nina Days." It's part of the reason I haven't been posting much. You are such a good friend to add your thoughts... Amelita

  12. Wow. I remember attempting to fish when I was younger. But we never did catch anything that big.

    I'm a bit slow on revisits... when busy. I'm attempting a CD catch up day.
    Thanks for your visits. Keep writing and have fun living.
