Blue Sky Over Progo River

Blue, it's the only word to describe the sky over Progo River that morning.

It was my lucky morning on Progo River. Still in the spirit of my pre-owned spinning reel, I managed to land a fish again, still in around the same spot as previous fishing sessions. The fish was the longest (50 cm) palung (hampala barb) I ever caught by the time I was writing this story, also it's the strongest fish power I've ever felt either in Progo, Serang, Sepuri or Tinalah River.

The fishing spot was my case-based learning on the river path in the subject of the presence of the fish. The clue is "the river fish rely on the current", so I have a fishing spot that rich in "current" keywords. It's situated around the river cut bank where the current was so powerful at the upstream and it's a pool at the downstream.

The clue took me to the fish. I cast my popper to the narrow area right behind the heavy current. After some cast... Fish on! Unfortunately, it's hard to unhook the fish, and I was afraid that the fish could not survive so I decided to keep the fish instead of releasing. Attached is the fishing video.

The update does not alter the story, but mostly correction of English grammar due to English is not my native language.
