Fishing… for frogs (2009)

I went to the nearby Dam yesterday to try a spot of fishing

We couldn’t find any worms (it took me some time to understand what we were looking for as the guy I went with kept talking about ‘meat of fish’). I eventually spotted a frog stuck in a hole and so we (well, he) pulled it out and we used it as bait.

Poor Mr Frog

Dead frogs have comedic tongues.

We used branches for rods

And attached the string, hook and float to the end.

We picked up some spectators who had been swimming.

I did an excellent job of catching frogs. I guess if you use frogs as bait then that is what you get. My tally included 5 frogs, 1 crab, 1 stick and 0 fish. In fact none of us caught any. Maybe we should have stayed out longer but I didn’t bring any drinking water or a hat it was hot hot hot.

Although at least I managed to hold on to my rod.
