Sungai Perak - it's not sport fishing, we just love the meat...

Back in Perak, we used to go fishing in several rivers but in recent months, we were fishing in Sg Perak or Sg Kinta. Our favourite fishing spots?... ah! They are not something like floating pontoon or platform. It's more like these...



Clear sky...


Sometimes.. raining


My fishing rod...
 It's wild and dangerous as it used to be. Yes, these are our spots since some 22 years ago!
This is because we are looking for some exotic tropical fish such as 'Jelawat', 'Ara-Ara', 'Lampam' and ' Sebarau'. I understand that we can buy these fish at the wet market but trust me they are all from ponds or aquaculture fish. And of course the taste is different.




Jelawat


Ara-ara but others may call it in different names


Lampam Jawa
 We used to fish fresh water prawns or 'Udang Galah' at different spots in those years but now, fresh water prawns are seasonal and years of erosion of the river banks due to tropical heavy rainfall had changed their habitat a bit. Now, it is advisable to get on boat or 'sampan'.

We still do fishing occasionally and we have our fishing gear in the car boot, always .. and ready for action.
