The sport; Sembilang fishing competing against a family of otters
The company: me and my brother in law,M
The location: the jetty at the river mouth, Sungei Melaka Langkawi.
The ambience; The heaven in its full glory with the second day cresent rising above the distant mountain. Perfect weather.
The main act: enter the competition, a family of memerang or otters descended into the river. There must be about twelve of them. Thier sense of timing was perfect. As soon as they descended the tide started rising in perfect timing. It left me astounded. Here we were trying to figure out when the tide will come and this family of memerang showing us the science of tidal prediction. It was His creation in its full glory again.
The winner: the memerang. We did not get a single bite for the next 45 minutes after the memerang descended. Only after the water level was reasonably high, did we get some little bites from some tiny sembilang and duri.
Lesson learnt: Do not fish where there are otters in the vicinity. Memerang has perfected the science of tidal prediction.
The unexpected Q: What was the most dangerous sport you have done, abang?
The unexpected A : women
I did not say womanising, that was for sure. My love for langkawi was getting more serious.
