Gone Fishing

Catch of the day
Yesterday Sara, Fiona, Clas, Totti and myself arranged for a four hour fishing trip from Mehmet the cook here in our resort at Rainbow Lodge. (Pictures here) Full of expectations of the "big catch" we were driven to the beach where a longtail boat and his skipper were awaiting us. Just as we set off there was a downpour of rain, but luckily only lasting a short time. I expected to be taken out to sea, going for Shark, Barracuda, Tuna? (or at least something like that!) Instead the trip took 10 minutes and we stopped in front of an Island. The skipper prepared the bait and we started to lower our hooks into the unknown depths aaaand I had a bite. I pulled my line in and I saw....
.a good size aquarium fish..... pffft. We all thought at least there ARE fish and carried on, but all we caught were small but very pretty fish. Sara was a bit more lucky as she caught some bigger ones, but the largest was caught by Fiona, I wouldn`t call it enormous but at least that one would have made a good meal. We were taken back to shore about 4 hours later and gave the catch to the skipper. The trip did not live up to our hopes where the fishing was concerned but it still was a good day out and the nicest thing was the experience in seeing a big turtle swimming past the boat and then diving away into the deep.
