Intrepid fishermen get to it, while Louise watches
Young Wessie was in his element: I think he would fish every hour of the day if he was allowed to!
After losing a very large fish, Grant was the first to land a big barbel (catfish)
Wessel (Snr) kindly removed the hook from the barbel's mouth (you can see Grant's sandalled toes behind the fish) and then released it back into the dam
Twenty minutes later young Wessie landed his barbel (catfish)
Note how the lad watches his father free the hook from the barbel's mouth (Wessel had to do this without touching it!) and released it back into the water
Young Wessie's catch!
Congratulations to Birthday Man, Grant and young Wessie on great catches which are swimming free again today!
Here's wishing all reading this post today, a wonderful week ahead!
