Man VS Fish

We found ourselves a new hobby.

Ever since I was a little boy, I’ve been fascinated with the art of fishing. I grew up near a river where a lot of locals’ favorite past time is fishing. Early in the morning, people gather by the riverside with their rods and baits and spend the whole day fishing. Whoever catches the biggest fish goes home with a bragging right and a delicious dinner. There even came a time when fishing was so big, they had to organize a tournament that was held in Tabangao, Batangas City.┬áComplete with a committee, boats and coast guards, the tournament pushed through. The contest was sponsored by San Miguel Beer and people around the country joined.

Then, we moved to a new house. I’ve forgotten everything about it. My memories were triggered by a friend of mine a few days ago when he asked me to join him on a fishing trip near Philippine Ports Authority. Our first fishing trip and both of us caught a fish. After that, a lot of our buddies became interested with it and wanted to join the next fishing trip. I even asked my brother from Canada to bring our father’s fishing rod when he goes home for his vacation this coming July.

These pictures were taken in during our fishing trips in Pinamucan, Batangas and near PPA.
