After the last trip to FW and catching that wonderful (and tasty) rohu.. My missus insisted that she would accompany me on the next trip.. Despite me trying to put her off by telling her about the smelly groundbait and the ants eggs and the heat, there was no escaping her... "I AM GOING"... and as most married men know, well that is that :D

Details of groundbait and bait prep can be found in the thread "The Missus and the Fish"

My duties for the day was only groundbaiting, putting the bait on the hook and casting.. Rest was to be done by HRH Mrs GRC (as per her strict orders)

Steph took up the seat in front of the rods and was very attentive to the dip on the floats, eager to strike.. I had to keep on telling her to be patient.. To my surprise, it was not what i expected to be.. She was very quiet and listened to what I had to say (i think this may have been the few times where I could get my point across without the fear of a rolling pin being thrown at me :lol: ) Now and then she got excited when a fish turned over or splashed in front of us and she would ask me what fish it was and what was the weight.. My guesstimates kept her satisfied..

Anyways, back to the exciting moments.... She had a field day at strikes and missed a few as the hook did not set right, however she was having her fun... We did catch (or rather SHE CAUGHT) a mrigal of about 800gms which was released back to the water, much to her disappointment..
It was getting dark and we had about an hour of fishing left.. Absolutely intent on catching something, I groundbaited close to the bank in hope for some tilapias.. And the move paid off... Within a few minutes, we had had caught three of them, however with all the excitement of the missus on catching her first fish for the pot, she scared the rest away, I think...

By now it had gotten dark and was time to pack up.. She handed me the first rod as I had dismantled the set up and put it way.. As she was about to pick the second rod, the reel screamed and I knew she was onto something.. I suggested that I play the fish but she was having none of it and after 30 minutes of playing the fish on a loose drag (precautionary measure on my part) she landed a 1.6kg mrigal.. A bloody fantastic catch by the missus...

I am trying (as usual) to upload the pics of FW and my missus and the mrigal.. Hope you guys like it...

Guys - I have fished with some of the best anglers and I have fished alone but I can safely say that fishing with my best friend, Steph, was the best experience ever...
We planning on going again soon...

Tight Lines,
GRC
