More pix from my wonderful trip to Goa. Trolling in the mouthes of Nerul and Mandavi and around, 15-16 january 2008 (pix are random chronology).
Start point. Near Nerul bridge
My young ‘Sancho-Pansa’
: russian boy Max, son of my friends. He's very enthusiastic 'bout fishing: he can stand up at 4:30 a.m. and still waitin’ for me (total silence, without any sounds!) near the guesthouse's door till RIGHT time - 5:25 a.m. - Max, why so early?! Taxi will come only 5:30! (taxi from Anjuna to Calangute) - Hmmm... I can't sleep, - he said, - because..... What, if my alarm will be broken… AND YOU'LL GO WITHOUT ME!
Yeaah, Max have proud!
Unf***inbelieveble sunrise!!! (Trust me, guys, in REAL – it’s more impressive!)
Maestro =Dean van Straaten=, and Tony – englishmans, owners of the boat. They are great! About Dean, I know him 2 years. Funny story: 2006 December I’ve searchin’ a charter boat – to do trolling. Nobody locals helps me, except my indian friend Anthony, he work in ‘Sunset’ guesthouse in Anjuna (about Anthony – another story, he’s sick ‘bout fishing!). O’kay, ALL THE TACKLES I have with: rods, reels, lines, leaders, vobblers, etc… I think, I was first crazy Russian, who BRING IT ALL WITH
… Once, I was in Mapusa, in ‘White Surf Tackles’ shop, and I saw a poster, just simple ink-jet-printed poster on the wall of this shop. =Trolling in Goa=! And I asked for the contacts – I became it! Just standing in this shop I’ve called to Dean – in 2 days I've expiried my first trolling in Goa. And I’m very glad to meet Dean! He’s very open, many emotions, many skills, many experience….
(Btw: he was Chief of Fire Service in London
Tony. I can speak with Tony about Dostoevsky, Hamingway and Chekhov - …. and this moment will be a bite!!!
Guys, it’s a good receipt (® + ©: just speak ‘bout FINE ARTS and HIGH LITERATURE = results are guaranteed!!!
OK, about results in my last 2 days in Goa.
Bream, about 4 kg
Dream-bream and grouper. Just grouper (5 kg)
Results may vary. Kindergarden snapper, the same 3 goes back in water.
Ooops, go home, amigo!
