We were originally scheduled for Operations Choco but since last night inevitably ended late (New Year’s Eve), we postponed our 5am wake up time to something more reasonable… like 12pm… ish…. So after lunch, we arrived at the spot at about 2.

Overall feeling of the place was that it was beautiful but dead.

Be wary of all plants in your way. Sometimes the most innocent looking plants can give you nasty scratches. Casually tried to brush aside vine that was in the way but the vine stuck to my hand. Not realising that it was sticking because all the tiny claspers on that vine were already under my skin, I pulled my hand away roughly.

Nigel borrowed all my small lures and had some success with them. I lost one small Temensis on a Yozuri Tobimaru.

Despite weighing 10kg on the boga/lip grip, the bag still floated fairly easily. Investment totally worth it!

Called it a day at about 6pm.

  1. Nice to read your blog. I’m glad if another time you’ll be in Borneo for a trip. Also nice to know you. Someday I dream of visiting your city!

    Have a nice strike!
