Life is all about new experiences and knowing when to just say “yes” when these new experiences come to call. Recently I had the wonderful opportunity from benefiting greatly from choosing to immediately say yes and it all started a month ago.
During a recent family visit to Malaysia I met up with fellow fishing blogger Chin of Sport fishin’ Asia. After a day of fishing for some local haruan in the Klang, we parted ways (not before planning another fishing trip of course).
He told me of a famous region in the east of the Malay peninsula known as Kuala Rompin. Apparently a few years back some people discovered a high number of sailfish off the coast of a boring little agricultural town. Soon enough like Cinderella, Kuala Rompin transformed from an unknown farmer’s village into a world-renowned fishing destination. In fact, town’s original statues were of their two greatest produces: watermelon and prawns. Since the fishermen’s discovery the town had added a statue of a marlin to honour their new found livelihood.
With a strict catch-and-release policy catches are almost always plentiful and big. When Chin asked me if I wanted to go my first answer was a straight-up yes.
A month later I returned to Malaysia to make my way with Chin and his friends, Jamie, Allen and Edward, (all very swell guys might I add) to Kuala Rompin.
How was the trip? Better let the video tell you:
