There is Always a Beginning for Everything

Then a series of processes comes to follow. It takes efforts, times, money and mistakes occurred. I am a self learned person, often the greatest things is to learn from the mistakes. I do believe things will not happen instantly, at least it's for my life.

I am still so impressed with the first experience of fishing in casting technique on Progo River of Yogyakarta. It's been a while since I imagined to fish in casting technique. I was inspired by a fishing show on TV. It seems so exciting.

It was the end of October 2016, I went down to Progo River to practice casting. I really didn't expect to get a fish strike on the first day. Although it was a "missed strike", it was enough to make my heart raced. I was so lucky on the second day, got the fish strike again, hooked and succeeded to land the fish.

I was so surprised to get my topwater lure got strike suddenly.
It was like a "little blast."
It made me blank for seconds, nervous and panic.
My heart raced.
The line was tightened.
Feeling the fish power.
Afraid of the line would break.
Yes! I was wired to a fish! It was a palung.

My First Catch
My First Catch
October 21, 2016 - Here's my first catch of cast fishing, it's a palung (hampala barb) in 6 Oz of weight and more than 30 cm of length. The lure was a Sotelo WTD stick bait that also to be my first factory-made lure.

For me, a kind of person with no fishing experience and "natural ability/gift" to fish, it's so impressive.
Cast, retrieve, twitch, twitch, pause, retrieve and cast again.
It's like to sketch a form on a paper, scratch, scratch again, and finally a shape of the object is formed, or to code a number line of a function, after evaluating some if and else conditions then returned to be true or false.

I am at the age of my forty and never been fishing so intense in my life, but I am now.
So here I am, life takes me to the fishing. I am in a new of a thing, angling.

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