Now i'm a fisherman


Time to post.

I've decided to update this thing as it has been long time...

Happens that know i'm a fisherman .

One day, I think that it was because some TV program or something, my daughter asked me to take her fishing... On a quick trip vacation to chiriqui, we passed by Bambito hotel where there is a trout farm... easy and lots of fish so a warranty to get something hooked.

6 trout out and in my mind... she has already stractch that itch...

well... some months passed and one day we were running by a sort off superstore down here in Panama and out of the sudden, she just grabbed a rod and stated

This is the one i want.

So of course i got her a rod.. eventually.. But as spected, i got one for me... then everything started. 3 or 4 months has passed and i ended up spending small fortunes on fishing tackle. Everybody has a different way to do stuff... hundreds of options of terminal tackle, lures etc... me been me.. I started to “study about the subject” on-line and off-line.

Panama has good fisheries of peacock bass (locally called “sargento”)...the story goes as some medical doctor had a pond with these fish and by accident the species got introduced into the Chagres river (the one that supply water to the panama canal lake)... as peacock is aggressive, they vanish 6 or 8 local species... and are fun to catch according to the Internet...
