In the early days I started fishing in casting techniques, I looked for information about the streams that was suitable for casting and close to my base. I got some streams, and one of them was Tinalah, a river located along the Menoreh foothills in Kalibawang to Samigaluh region, Kulon Progo Regency, Yogyakarta.
I am very impressed with Tinalah. It's a clean river. To me, the combination of the clear water, river rocks and Menoreh hills as a backdrop creates a beautiful landscape.
Senior anglers advised me to fish for palung (hampala barb) during the dry season. The dry season in Tinalah, I found that fishing nets dominated the stage. At first, it made me pessimistic to catch some fish, but I realized that everyone has their own niche. In my case, the catch rate of fish was very low, in other words the 2017 dry season on Sungai Tinalah was hard for me.
The rainy season turned to the dry season, in my case I found that the catch rate was higher. When it rains, the water becomes muddy, when the water turns clear, it's the best time to cast my fishing lures.
A part of fishing I am also interested in interacting with people I met by the river, mostly they are villagers around the river. They are friendly and welcoming. They are familiar with the river, I think that the river has become a part of their daily life. I also got lots of advice about fishing from them.
Then I got the idea to make a video about my fishing trips. Using my camera phone, I started learning to make fishing videos. Previously I didn't have an idea how making a video. Mostly I go fishing alone, so I myself take shots.
This is my first ever video! Based on my first video, this is a recomposed video. It is about Tinalah River, basically this video is a slide picture of the river, presenting what I saw during my fishing trips.
