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.
